The increasing use of personal devices such as smartphones and tablets in the workplace is offering an opportunity as well as a challenge to organisations, in particular the IT department. The potential benefits include increased employee productivity and reduced hardware and software costs to the organisation, but the risks from data leakage and malware are also significant. This ebook looks at ways to embrace the benefits of BYOD while offering advice on how to minimise the risks.
