JHarris - great article! We always love a good ZDnet post, but this one is particularly interesting.
BYOD is a concept that comes up all the time around here - especially with regards to endpoint protection for companies. So you can imagine that item #5 on that list caught my eye.
The concept of BYOD in the workplace is getting more common - as is the use of smartphones, the use of tablets and unfortunately the rise of mobile malware. My main takeaway from this is that BYOD is happening - so smart IT companies should make sure they are treating the smartphones/tablets of employees like another endpoint. Secure it!
(And we may just have a solution for that coming very soon. 😉 )
