BYOD-Bring Your Own Device
By Sreedevi K Nair
BYOD is an upcoming trend that is being followed by many enterprises where employees can use their personal devices at workplace. BYOD’s easy to use mobile application helps to access shared data smoothly and also provides the advantage of working anytime and anywhere using their own devices. Use of BYOD devices has helped to improve employee satisfaction and productivity.
Microsoft Intune application can help organizations provide their employees with access to corporate applications, data, and resources from virtually anywhere on almost any device, while helping to keep corporate information secure. OOAC is assisting small and medium business with Microsoft “Intune” BYOD application to deliver corporate application on different devices used by employees and vendors.
BYOD calls for three critical components:
- A software application for managing the devices connecting to the network.
- A written policy outlines the responsibilities of both the employer and the users.
- An agreement that the users should sign acknowledging that they have understood the policy.
