CYOD: A Balanced Alternative to BYOD (Webinar featuring Gartner)

From the experts | Posted on November 5, 2013 by Angela Cope

IT professionals may be reluctant to introduce a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program – and for good reason. Concerns about security, governance and the fact that many employees are hesitant to take on the job of supporting their own devices derail even the best intentioned BYOD program. However, there is more balanced option emerging, and it’s called Choose Your Own Device (CYOD).

As you may know already, CYOD provides IT with the opportunity to maintain control of the devices within their environment while providing employees with the opportunity to choose a device that works best for them.

In October we held a webinar featuring leading analyst firm Gartner, were we provided clients with an opportunity to understand the do’s and don’ts of a CYOD program.

Many of our clients asked for a copy of the webinar, and so we’re sharing it here for everyone to enjoy.
