B6 “BYOD – It’s Not so Hard!” presented at RochesterSecuritySummit 2015

by Kevin Wilkins,

Summary : Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is one of the biggest challenges in IT today. As opposed to engaging in the very complex issue of MDM technology, it may be possible to look at it from a standpoint of Remote Access. Remote Access has been an IT deliverable since the age of the modem and can be looked upon for guidance in facing this contemporary need. It is also essential to have clearly defined use cases before engaging in a BYOD program. Without clearly defined use cases, the BYOD environment will be chaotic and insecure. We will discuss some of the challenges and strategies for properly implementing and managing a BYOD environment.
