What is BYOD?


Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, describes company policy or strategy that allows employees to use their personally owned devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops to access work-related information, software, and applications, while still getting IT support for these devices.

Why is it Important to the IT Professional?

BYOD brings about a lot of benefits to businesses that implement it. For one, it allows their employees to be more flexible and responsive. Plus, employees using a device that they are already familiar with can also free up IT resources and cut IT costs. But there is still a need to effectively manage personal devices used in business to mitigate security risks.
