The rapid proliferation of mobile devices entering the workplace feels like divine intervention to many IT leaders. It’s as if a voice boomed down from the mountain ordering all of the employees you support to procure as many devices as possible and connect them to corporate services en masse. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) was born and employees followed with fervor.
There’s no sense pretending it isn’t happening or saying, “We don’t let our employees do that.” The truth is, they’re doing it already and will continue to burrow noncompliant devices into your network with or without your permission. Forrester’s study of US information workers revealed that 37% are doing something with technology before formal permissions or policies are instituted. Further, a Gartner CIO survey determined that 80% of employees will be eligible to use their own equipment with employee data on board by 2016.
This raises the inevitable question: how will you support workforce desire to use personal apps and devices while allowing them to be productive in a secure environment that protects corporate data? I hope these "Ten Commandments of BYOD" show you how to create a peaceful, secure, and productive mobile environment.
The U.S. trucking industry is currently debating the pros and cons of mobile communication platforms as it relates to Company-Owned Personally Enabled devices (COPE) or to rely on the Bring Your Own Device platform, simply known as BYOD.
Christian Schenk is Senior Vice President of product strategy and market growth for XRS Corporation, specializing in helping private and for-hire fleets use driver and vehicle data to improve every aspect of their operations.
Mr. Schenk points out that mobile technology (BYOD) over traditional, bulky "onboard computers," is already here as nearly 90% of truck drivers currently have personal mobile devices in use.
XRS is able to support more than 100 mobile devices within its portfolio, on four networks across the United States and Canada.
Mr. Schenk joins us as our special guest to further discuss the XRS Mobile Communication platform, the facts behind the BYOD technology and why their platform is considered to be revolutionizing the industry.

The number of mobile devices in healthcare facilities is increasing rapidly, as is the diversity of mobile platforms, operating systems (OSes) and communication methods that need to be supported by these organizations. In fact, in remarks made at George Washington University Hospital in Washington D.C., FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said that healthcare is being “transformed” by broadband, and called out wireless and mobile in particular.
For its part in this transformation, Genachowski said,
The FCC is pursuing a health strategy with three key components: promoting connectivity; fostering fast-paced innovation of wireless networks, medical devices and mobile apps; encouraging greater adoption of life-saving health technology; and ensuring that spectrum is optimally allocated and managed.”
So on the outside, infrastructure and promotion is progressing, but what does mobility in healthcare look like from the inside?
A recent poll of managed Healthcare providers by the Aberdeen Group found three clear expectations for mobile healthcare technology: stem the rising costs of healthcare processes, improve staff productivity, and decrease the entry erroneous data.
To understand where mobility is headed though, it would first help to remember the mistakes of the past.
The BYOD wars are over, and the users have won. Instead of fighting BYOD, IT has to shift its focus to take advantage of mobility. While security and compliance are still important, IT must also plan for mobile applications that enhance productivity, trigger business transformation, or provide a competitive advantage. Whether you build or buy these apps, you need strategies to meet the expectations of mobile users who demand easy access to data and tools—and an engaging experience.
Join mobility consultant Michael Finneran and Interop Radio host Curt Franklin for an insightful conversation on how IT can strike a balance between protecting corporate data and systems while also fostering an environment where employees can make effective use of mobile technologies.

Juniper's Tim LeMaster and Aruba's Micah Wilson join The Modern Network Radio to discuss the importance of wireless networks across the federal government, why federal agencies have disparate wireless and wired networks today and the need for converged wireless and wired networks moving forward.
Private Spaces is Mentisor’s latest show where we explore security and privacy issues in both business and our day to day lives.
Tonight we look at the growing trend of "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) - and discuss the implications, problems and risks for both device owners and the business.
Come join us – and call in with your thoughts, questions and concerns today.
As a precursor to Lacoon Mobile Security's upcoming presentation at Blackhat 2014, we interivew Daniel Brodie, a Sr. Security Researcher at Lacoon to discuss some of the vulnerabilities that exist in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) frameworks, as well as provide some insights into the implications of using VDI in your enterprise.
Daniel explains how while VDI solutions are certainly a beneficial tool to protect enterprises against device theft, they don’t provide protection against targeted threats such as mobile Remote Access Trojans (mRATs) and Man-in-the-Middle. In fact, as he shows in the research, threats against the underlying VDI platform are fairly easy to carry out by using widely-distributed free tools.
The podcast goes over the main topics that he’ll present at Blackhat, including the methods of research, potential threats and best practices that enterprises should follow.
In this radio show, we interview Mr. Toby Rush, Founder and CEO of EyeVerify, LLC, based out of Kansas City, KS. This company has a very unique solution in that it focuses upon examining the blood vessel pattern in the whites of the eye (also known as the "Sclera") in order to confirm the identity of an individual. The eye also possesses the iris (which is located at the front), as well as the retina (which is located in the back). There are vendors in this space whom also make identification solutions, known as iris recognition and retinal recognition, respectively. We will find out out from Mr. Rush what makes their product stand out from these solutions. EyeVerify mostly focuses upon the mobile and wireless application markets, making it easier for the end user to gain access to their smartphone, rather than having to type in a password each and every time. EyeVerify is also the recipient of a recent $6 million dollar investment, and we will find out how that money will be used to propel EyeVerify into the future.
Finally, we will hear from Mr. Rush about his thoughts into the future of Virtual Payments made from Smartphones, and how EyeVerify's solution can fit into that market space.
