Are BYOD and security opposing IT initiatives?

Over the past year, BYOD (bring your own device) has become a hot topic in both small businesses and large corporations. Allowing employees to bring their own device gives them flexibility for where and when they can work. However, without proper security IT can quickly lose control of corporate data. Should your business have a BYOD policy? The articles below share some insight on how to create a safe BYOD atmosphere while maintaining control over company files.

Customer Insight

"This is both an Egnyte, and an Android phone story. I am an attorney and I was sitting at my in-laws lake house one Saturday, which is 200 miles from my office. I received an email from a client who was in desperate need of some documents. Just a couple of years ago this would have resulted in no good response until Monday, or some serious scrambling on a Saturday to make it happen. However, with Egnyte, I was able to sit on the deck with my feet up, looking out at the lake, and respond to the email. Within the email I accessed my Egnyte folder on my phone and attached all of the requested documents and sent them to the satisfied client.

This whole process took about 5, no more than 7, minutes. Definitely an Egnyte success story."
