While BYOD held the promise of a mega revolutionary trend, industry data confirms companies are retreating from using personal liable devices in a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) model. As companies have added the latest smartphone models to their catalog, there has been a steady decline in BYOD adoption. According to a report from CompTIA, 53 percent of companies surveyed have outright abandoned BYOD. Why the shift? Today’s companies are realizing the issue with BYOD isn’t just that employees must fend for themselves but it is proving difficult to enforce security policies on non-corporate liable devices. When you add in the financial and legal complexities, companies are finding the reduction in overhead gained through avoiding centralized mobile device management is not worth the issues it has spawned around security and productivity.
Today’s organizations are realizing if they allow employees to choose between a robust catalog of pre-approved devices along with mechanisms for employees to share in the cost, they can preserve enterprise control while maintaining an overall reduction in overhead. In other words, by embracing a model to ‘Choose’ Your Own Device versus ‘Bring’ Your Own Device, the complications of managing a fleet of personally owned mobile devices is replaced by a model that delivers better control over usage, cost and security. Synergies of centralized processes for device acquisition and monthly administration coupled with policies stipulating where employees can subsidize for non-business expenses not only yields the most cost effective solution but the highest employee satisfaction.
