Bring order to bring-your-own-device BYOD

Did you get a sparkly new mobile device for Christmas? Perhaps your users did too. When they bring them to work, how are you going to manage them?

This report estimated that in 2013, 10 million devices were lost by UK employees, a large proportion of which were unmanaged personal devices with unsecured access to corporate data. So when your users bring their new devices to the workplace how are you going to manage this and avoid mobile armageddon?

In this webinar from January 2015, OCG consultant Mat Richards explains how to bring order to the potential chaos of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) free-for-all. Mat describes how, with a device management strategy in place, you can enable your users to access corporate data on the devices they own and love.

He also shows how it’s possible to stay in control using Microsoft Intune and System Center Config, and if they get lost or stolen corporate data can be effortlessly wiped from devices. Mat also considers the choose-your-own-device (CYOD) option some businesses are now taking and asks how a device management strategy may differ in this case.
