Poll: Do You Have A BYOD Policy?

BlackBerrys were once ubiquitous in the workplace. Employees were gifted the QWERTY devices so they could check emails on the move securely and under the control of IT.

But as BlackBerry’s advantage eroded and workers (often senior executives with a brand new iPhone) demanded the ability to use their own devices on corporate networks, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) polices became commonplace.

To BYOD or not to BYOD

The popularity of cloud applications and advances made in mobile device management (MDM) platforms have made this a reality and encouraged employees to be happier and productive.

Some companies even have Choose Your Own Device (CYOD) polices where people can actually pick their own company-owned handset.

But what does your business do? We want to know.

Let us know in the poll below.
