BYOD or CYOD — How to COPE with the Dilemma

BYOD, BYOD and BYOD

Getting your device BYOD-Approved

BYOD hyped? A little bit.

Costly or Costly-Not?

  • On implementing BYOD, considerable capital is invested in device management, security and support.
  • In some countries, The organization has to pay compensation to the employee for bringing their personal device.
  • Value-Added-Tax (VAT) is deductible for the company; the stipend is also taxable for both the company and the employee. If the gross stipend is increased to compensate for these losses, the amount might become very high.

Convenience and Surveillance

Making Up for What is Lost

  • Unified Endpoint Management: By using a UEM like Hexnode, your device can be managed and secured easily, eliminating most of the drawbacks of BYOD. With its remote monitoring capabilities, remote troubleshooting is possible.
  • Cloud-based software and tools: Adopting these tools allows the team to work collaboratively on a task. They can help each other out without having to interact physically.
  • Self Help portal and Peer Support: Nothing beats helping yourself out or having your colleagues help you out.
  • Company-approved apps: Providing a list of apps approved or mandated by the organization would help the employee set up their device for work.

So, personal or just business?
