What is your policy regarding use of device by users other than corporate end-user?
Will you provide intranet access to individual-liable users?
Will you require individually-liable device users to conform to acceptable use guidelines on all Internet usage, even if not enabled through corporate infrastructure and/or for personal reasons (e.g., as a condition of receiving stipend, reimbursement or access to company apps or data)?
Policy should be clear on whether device enabled for corporate apps and data access may be used or loaned to other users (e.g., if a Good client has a separate password and the whole device password is not used, it may be acceptable for company end-user to allow someone else to temporarily use the device, as use of device does not require company end-user to first “unlock” the Good for Enterprise client that enables access to corporate data or apps).
If you provide intranet access (e.g., through Good Mobile Access or mobile VPN client), policy should be clear that company’s acceptable use guidelines for desktop/laptop browser usage will apply to any usage of intranet and/or Internet access that is enabled through the use of any mobile VPN infrastructure.
Most companies will not apply acceptable use policies to usage not enabled through corporate infrastructure — if your company chooses to do so (e.g. as condition of receiving stipend or reimbursement), then policy should be clear on this.
As more companies embrace the broad usage of individually-owned mobile devices for access to corporate applications and data, Good Technologyis often asked for guidance on the establishment of an associated device usage policy. This slideshow, as outlined by Good Technology, is intended to provide guidance on questions that companies should ask themselves when establishing their own policies and related considerations.
Only your combined information technology (IT), human resource (HR), finance and legal teams — working closely with your executive team and business unit managers — can determine the exact corporate liable and/or individual liable policy that best fits your company, meets its financial goals and objectives, and takes into account security, legal, regulatory, tax or other requirements and considerations that may uniquely apply to your company and its operations.
