You know that many companies have started embracing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) practices, allowing employees to use their private devices (smartphone and tablets) for business purposes. According to research2guidance’s study, while there are financial benefits to this practice, most companies (67%) are not aware of risks involved. To tackle the issue the research company suggests few things:

- Tools for mobile device and application management which are already in high demand. They’re talking about MDM (Mobile Device Management) and MEAP (Mobile Enterprise Application Management) services/products.
- Mobilizing company software and processes – it is a must for companies to at least start an analysis to identify the cost and benefits of mobilizing the core company processes.
