When today's hacker and identity theft threats combine with the new challenges presented by the trend of 'bring your own device' (BYOD), companies must take decisive action to deliver secure, flexible and convenient authentication to employees and their devices alike.

BYOD has always posed a headache to system administrators, since these mobile devices are accessing corporate data. In recent years, the trend has blossomed into BYOE or "bring your own everything," as employees blur boundaries by bringing not only their own smartphones, tablets and laptops to the office, but also their own applications and networks.

This infusion of personal devices, apps and networks into the corporate environment presents a significant security challenge, as controlling access to corporate data and network assets is complicated by the presence of devices, networks and applications not fully under the IT department's control. Many security and IT administrators have spent sleepless nights trying to address well-known and widespread security issues surrounding data synchronization on unsecured devices accessing the corporate network. In this slideshow, SMS Passcode has identified critical steps organizations can take to minimize the impact of BYOD and manage devices in a secure way.
