BYOD: If you haven’t heard of it, you will very soon.
BYOD stands for ‘bring your own device’ and is gaining popularity as more and more corporations allow their employees to connect their personal smartphones and tablets to the business network. A recent IBM survey revealed that 73% of business leaders surveyed currently allow mobile devices to connect to their corporate networks – are you one of them?
While this trend increases employee productivity outside the office, it also brings up a whole slew of new questions: Are my employees using this device for both personal and professional use? How secure are my confidential files and folders? What if my iPad/laptop/Andriod phone gets stolen? CIOs now need to adjust security policies and standards to protect their organizations’ confidential information while IT teams are now responsible for managing all of these new mobile devices.
The easy solution? Cloud hosted virtual desktops.
This whitepaper will discuss how moving your desktop to the cloud can protect your company’s information while leveraging all of the other benefits of desktop virtualization.
