In the connected world today the modern workforce want to work from anywhere using a multitude of devices such as smartphones, tablets or laptops. They want to access cloud based services such as Office 365, Salesforce or simply applications from their mobile device.
Millennial workers want to be productive whilst on the move from devices of their choice anytime and anywhere. This is how they are used to functioning in their personal lives and wish to operate in their workplaces to be more agile and dynamic.
of individuals use devices for work purposes (Forester Research, 2014)
of enterprises will have two or more mobile operating systems to support in 2017 (Gartner 2012)
of companies expect to stop providing workers with devices by the end of 2016 (computing.co.uk 2014)
of business say mobility increases the efficiency of their business processes (computing.co.uk 2014)
Workers want to be productive and in the absence of a BYOD solution resort to shadow IT in circumventing the company by introducing their own personal mobile devices and applications to work from.
Bringing in a mobile working policy is great but brings about their own challenges.For the business, you only need to look at recent high profile cases where data has leaked outside into the wrong hands due to cyber-attacks because of compromised workplace user credentials . The consequences can result in costing organisations millions of pounds and also bringing about irreparable damage to a company’s reputation.
For those responsible for IT resources in an organisation you need to think how you balance mobile working whilst also managing the security of users, devices, applications and corporate data on mobile devices.
What is required is a Mobile device management (MDM) solution that protect’s company’s information and assets but also allow encourages workers to be more mobile regardless of device.
Every 3 minutes a mobile phone is stolen
80 % of employees admit to using non approved Software as a Service (Saas) applications. (McAfee 2014)
