Many IT Managers Still Resisting The BYO Device Trend

Yesterday we discussed some of the challenges that BYO phones face in the workplace. New survey data confirms that for many IT managers, the easiest way to deal with that challenge is still not letting people choose their own device.

According to the ISACA Risk-Reward barometer, 31% of ANZ IT managers think the benefits of letting workers choose their own device outweigh the risks, but 52% believe that anyone employee-owned mobile device represents a major threat to security. The data is based on 131 responses, so it should be treated with some degree of caution, but it does suggest the battle to let people choose their own phones will go on for a while.
