BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

BYOD - Bring Your Own Device

Many organizations want to support Bring Your Own Device initiatives to allow end-users to use personally owned devices at work.

Bring Your Own Device (or BYOD) programs are typically implemented to drive employee satisfaction and productivity, while addressing BYOD security risks. However, employee adoption of their employer’s BYOD program depends on the separation of enterprise apps and data from personal ones, and the maintenance of privacy.

Bring Your Own Device Solution

MobileIron provides enterprise BYOD solutions that enable IT organizations to selectively wipe business data on a user’s device, including business email, apps, content, settings, and certificates, without wiping personal content contained on the device. Without an enterprise BYOD security solution in place, if a device is lost or compromised, the IT administrator’s only option would be to wipe the entire device of all personal and corporate content. The MobileIron Enterprise Mobility Management platform delivers a scalable BYOD solution, with integrated Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Application Management (MAM) and Mobile Content Management (MCM) capabilities.
