Big Bad BYOD – and where it goes wrong

TechRepublic just posted an interesting article on BYOD (bring-your-own-device), and some worst case scenarios.  Whether or not to implement BYOD is a decision each firm has to make for itself, and its own environment.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.  If you’re still on the fence, it may be worth contemplating some of these issues before you take the plunge.

The article covers these 10 possible problem areas…..

1: Exposed data

2: Passwords in the wild

3: Declining productivity

4: Compatibility issues

5: Bandwidth overuse

6: Device management

7: Wireless bottlenecks

8: Autonomy overuse

9: Virus infections

10: Compatibility complaints
