Old No Comments on BYOD, Dangerous, but Smaller Trend Than You Might Think 29

Over the past 5 years, BYOD has been the hot button issue in IT. With much of the focus in the industry has been around security with users bringing their own device, it comes as a surprise that many big firms are not utilizing BYOD at all. According to the survey, anywhere from 39 percent to 51 percent of respondents are not doing BYOD at all. 

This trend of companies shying away from  makes alot of sense. According to the survey, less than half of companies that offer BYOD feel that it contributes positively to employees’ productivity. Furthermore, instead of making IT easier, it has made it harder, according to another survey done by a company called Centrify surveyed more than 500 employees at mid-to-large companies and found nearly half have more than six third-party apps on their BYODs, such as personal cloud storage repositories, and more than 15 percent have had their personal account or password compromised.

With the facts and stats form these surveys, would you roll out BYOD in your office?
