Put Bring–Your–Own–Device (BYOD) to "Work" in the Workplace

Ericom's secure mobile device access management solutions

BYOD - A Mixed Bag

Most of today's workforce have their own smart phones and tablets, which they both are comfortable with and expect the organization's IT department to support. This makes BYOD one of the hottest IT topics today. By allowing employees to use their own personal mobile devices for work, organizations can increase employee satisfaction and productivity in addition to reducing hardware and mobile device support costs.

BYOD presents many challenges as well, especially in the area of access security, compliance and IT management. Enabling employees to connect their personal devices to the corporate network can expose sensitive data, making organizations vulnerable to compliance and security violations. In addition, the growing variety of end user devices requiring support can be overwhelming for IT staff.

Ericom's answer: Deliver desktops and applications to any end user device, anywhere, while mitigating associated risks

Each organization's BYOD requirements and goals are different. While some companies may limit BYOD to certain employees (executives, field/sales people, third party consultants, independent agents), others may want to implement it for the entire workforce. Therefore, any BYOD solution must be tailored to fit the relevant scenario. Ericom has a portfolio of products that can be used in combination, or each on their own. Build a comprehensive, flexible BYOD solution that addresses the usability, security and manageability issues that come into play when supporting a variety of devices.

Solutions for BYOD include:
