Managing BYOD
BYOD will continue growing as mobile devices continue to play a greater role in our lives.  That's why so many IT players are offering solutions to address such BYOD challenges as security and device management.

Does BYOD come with headaches?  Of course it does.  However, security issues and IT management headaches (how do I support all those devices?) can be addressed by using new HTML5 technologies that enable users to connect to applications and systems without requiring IT staff to install anything on user devices. For example, Ericom AccessNow is an HTML5 RDP client that enables remote users to securely connect from iPads, iPhones and Android devices to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run their applications and desktops in a browser. This enhances security by keeping applications and data separate from personal devices.

Since AccessNow doesn't require any software installation on the end user device – just an HTML5 browser, network connection, URL address and login details - IT staff end up with less support hassles. The volunteer or temporary employee that brings in their own device merely opens their HTML5-compatible browser and connects to the URL given them by the IT admin.

Whatever you want to call it, BYOD, BYON, MDM, MAM - people using thier own smartphones, tabets and laptops for business is here to stay and will only increase in size. This will have positive productivity results, and it will also create many security issues. Companies will need to chose weather to use large BYOD systems, or like us use focused software or apps. Example, we needed HIPAA complient BYOD communication for our doctors. We looked at some larger systems like Aruba and Entrepoid, and found they were too large and invasive for the doctors. We eneded up getting a focused HIPAA compliant app (Tigertext) installed text on everyones device for HIPAA complient texting which the doctors felt comfortable with and solved our HIPAA compliance issue. these are the kind of choices that companies will have to make for BYOD.

Did you do an anecdotal survey or do you have side by side comparisons from your research? Inquiring minds need to know. Thank you,
