Or do you prefer to have your workers CYOD (“choose your own device”)?
The two sound the same, but there’s a fairly crucial difference. BYOD means a company allows workers to use technology – tablets, smartphones, or laptops – they brought from home. It can save an organization on hardware costs, and makes employees feel more comfortable. The downside, as Forbes noted last year, is that a BYOD fleet is much harder to secure.
In a CYOD office, workers need to pick from a list of preapproved devices, which makes them easier to secure. In either case, the security of your company’s data is key.
