BYOD: Device freedom without compromising the IT network
To understand the challenges Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) poses, it is helpful to understand the business trends that are driving BYOD adoption. BYOD has become one of the most influential trends that has or will touch each and every IT organization.
The BYOD trend means much more than just employees using their own devices for work. It is about end users being able to use the compute and communication devices they choose to increase productivity and mobility. These can be devices purchased by the employer, purchased by the employee or both.
This Cisco white paper discusses how this trend will affect businesses, explores the IT challenges, and outlines the Cisco technologies that are part of the solution.
