5 Reasons Why BYOD Is Not Dead (Yet)
BYOD Is Alive And Kicking
Reports of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)’s death have been greatly exaggerated. BYOD has been declared dead so many times over the years that most people have lost count. Even Enterprise Mobility Exchange asked if the days of having a BYOD policy might be finished, and declared it was not.
Although corporate-owned personally-enabled devices (COPE) have increased in popularity, BYOD still has a massive presence in the enterprise. Just as there are companies that ditch a BYOD policy for COPE, there are also organizations that make the switch back to BYOD.
BYOD has its risks and complications, as enterprises are often tasked with securing and managing these devices. However, to suggest that BYOD is dead is simply not reflective of the current state of enterprise mobility. Just like a monster in a horror movie that refuses to die, BYOD is not going anywhere.
