Cloud and BYOD: So Happy Together
Allowing employees to work securely and effectively on a range of devices is an IT imperative in the cloud era. That means setting policies and instituting best practices that address mobile device management, mobile application management, cloud-based file sharing, identity management and related topics. Only when a thorough BYOD strategy is in place can an organization be confident that its workers are safely handling data on consumer devices such as mobile phones, laptops, and tablets. Once proper controls are in place, a business knows how its information is being used – and altered – even when that work is being done beyond IT’s immediate control.
