Click through for seven tips on integrating a strong and effective BYOD program into your organization, as identified by Adam Ely, founder and COO, Bluebox Security.

For the last several years, IT has been split between fighting the onslaught of BYOD and realizing it must prepare for the inevitable. In the face of the "wild west" environment brought on by hundreds of different smartphones and tablets accessing corporate data assets, the common response was to increase restrictions and lock down employee-owned mobile devices, and for good reason. CIOs and CISOs are responsible for the protection of the most valuable asset organizations have – their data.  

By all measures, BYOD is here to stay and the focus has shifted from trying to restrict BYOD to learning how to leverage BYOD as a business enabler while managing its risks. This is not just because the BYOD freight train has left the station, but because BYOD makes users more productive. By allowing employees to use the tools they love – the devices and apps they prefer — you enable them to work from anywhere and, ultimately, increase their productivity and response times. Managed properly, BYOD becomes an asset for organizations. The following tips, identified by Adam Ely, founder and COO, Bluebox Security, will help organizations navigate this new era of mobility.
