Minimize IT Involvement

Minimize IT involvement with hardware. Organizations should consider using a client-hosted virtual desktop that runs alongside the user's own operating system and apps. This way, IT can concentrate on ensuring that the user has the tools and connectivity they need to work and access the company's network, while the user carries primary responsibility for hardware care and maintenance. However, IT staff should still be available for advice and to answer questions, on both PC and Mac/OS X systems.

The advent of bring your own device (BYOD) has brought about a revolution in the way employees access corporate resources, namely via their smartphones and tablets. And, although initially resisted by IT departments, many organizations now have a policy in place and allow employees to use their own smart devices for work. Enterprises, however, are no longer focusing only on BYOD, but instead have broadened their responsibility to encompass the bring-your-own-PC (BYOPC) movement.

As BYOPC evolves and takes hold, IT departments must decide whether the current technology offerings in the market are reliable and secure enough to protect corporate data. To do so, organizations need to establish a solid plan for dealing with BYOPC. In this slideshow, 1E outlines steps organizations should take to develop a successful BYOPC program.
