Bring Your Own iPad to Work
Many CIOs face overwhelming user demand to support personal mobile devices on the WLAN. While some analysts were suggesting, little more than a year ago, that the solution was for IT to supply and standardize on a single, corporate-configured smartphone for mobile employees, the IT group can no longer resist the bring-your-own-personal-mobile-device model.
This paper reviews the issues IT organizations face when employees demand to use their personal mobile devices in the office. As with most IT services, it will require a layered approach to manage and control these devices, and Aruba has developed Device Fingerprinting and Amigopod Enrollment, used in conjunction with our user/device-centric mobility architecture to give corporations the capabilities they need to support Apple iOS safely and successfully.
