BYOD: advantages and precautions for companies

In fact, the use of mobile devices by employees and collaborators accelerates and sometimes overcomes logistical problems that too often risk affecting activities.

In today’s company the practice of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is a factor that can lead to a noticeable change of course of the entire production process. In fact, the use of mobile devices by employees and collaborators accelerates and sometimes overcomes logistical problems that too often risk affecting activities.

Naturally, many benefits are enjoyed by a company that fully embraces this philosophy.

Let’s see together what they are:

  • Reduced costs: it is not the company that has to deal with the purchase and maintenance of the device since the employee accesses from his own staff and is directly responsible for his conditions and the correct functioning over time;
  • Reduced execution time: the worker will naturally choose the device that best matches the activity to be performed, giving a better product and concretrized in less time;
  • Increased productivity: flexibility and freedom of choice of the device positively affect the productivity of the individual employee, putting in close contact the professional environment and the most “comfortable” sphere for the worker.

BYOD, however, also requires a series of attentions and measures to be taken to avoid unpleasant events and any damage.

It is therefore necessary:

  • To protect devices properly: attempts at violation, malware and loss or non-voluntary disclosure of company information are risks to be prevented and strictly avoided;
  • To ensure respect for privacy: distinguish and differentiate well between professional and private spheres, very close if (for example) the worker uses his smartphone for business activities.
  • To review and update your Mobile Security procedures on a regular basis.

Develop a global security strategy to avoid the loss of data that interests networks and devices and to keep sensitive company data safe is a prerogative of the worker and the company for which he or she practices the profession.

 

Hand in hand with BYOD, the concept of CYOD (Choose your own device) is spreading, which envisages the employee’s choice of a device among those proposed by the company, adequately protected and configured ad hoc for the activities to be carried out.
