What is BYO? (And what you can do to make it happen)


A lot of people are talking about BYO (Bring your Own) programs so that users can bring their own phones, tablets, and laptops. If you want to do this, great! Now how do you get started? In this webcast, independent expert Brian Madden will explain how to plan for your BYO program, how to select your target users, and why you don't necessarily need full MDM. He'll also look at how to set your goals and help you figure out how to deal with existing systems, users who want to use non-standard devices, and how you can still maintain control.

After Brian's presentation, David McNeely, Product Manager for Centrify, will talk about Centrify DirectControl for Mobile and show how their cloud-based mobile access management solution lets IT admins manage their BYO devices with existing AD infrastructures. The webcast wraps up with David showing Brian a demo of how this is setup on an iPad.
