BYOD, Password Policies Ramp Up for Businesses
In today’s mobile landscape, managing both company- and employee-owned mobile devices is a universal challenge for corporate IT administrators. A report from Champion Solutions has found that organizations are nearly evenly split between those that have a formal BYOD policy (47 percent) and those that do not (53 percent)–but that password hygiene is alive and well.
There’s an onus on IT departments to develop ways to empower mobile employees while simultaneously establishing mobile-security procedures and support models that appropriately address business security concerns.
“This research we conducted is very important and relevant in today’s mobile workforce,” said Chris Pyle, president and CEO of Champion Solutions Group and MessageOps. “Our goal is to present businesses, both large and small, with the facts uncovered in the report to assist them with developing policies around Enterprise Mobility Services. Many of our customers would like to know if their policies are too constraining or too lose, and this gives them the ability to compare to their peers in the same industries and size of business.”
