Many companies has addopted BYOD (Bring your own device) approach, that allows users connect to corporate applications using user’s favourite gadget. Which makes work process more comfortable and more effective. When employee leaves workdesk for a meeting or a business trip, person is still up to date with information and can make faster decisions, even from the mobile device or table.
While BYOD is very popular approach, this puts more responsibility on IT, since IT should provide secure channel accessing corporate data and also eliminate risk of data leakage to protect business. Smartphones, tablets or other mobile devices no longer used to as voice transfer devices, they became modern business tools that helps employees do their work.
