BYOD Security: Tips for Reducing Risks – Veracode

BYOD is short for “Bring Your Own Device,” a phrase that refers to the practice of allowing employees to bring their own mobile devices to work for use with company systems, software, networks, or information. BYOD has become a huge trend amongst enterprises, with nearly 1/3 of employees using personal devices at workplaces worldwide.1 BYOD can provide several key benefits to enterprises, including increased productivity, reduced IT and operating costs, better mobility for employees, and higher appeal when it comes to hiring and retaining employees. However, with these benefits comes an increased information security risk, as BYOD can lead to data breaches and increased liability for the organization.
