Click through for the 10 commandments of BYOD, as identified by MaaS360.

The rapid proliferation of mobile devices entering the workplace feels like divine intervention to many IT leaders. It’s as if a voice boomed down from the mountain ordering all of the employees you support to procure as many devices as possible and connect them to corporate services en masse. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) was born and employees followed with fervor.

There’s no sense pretending it isn’t happening or saying, “We don’t let our employees do that.” The truth is, they’re doing it already and will continue to burrow noncompliant devices into your network with or without your permission. Forrester’s study of U.S. information workers revealed that 37 percent are doing something with technology before formal permissions or policies are instituted.  Further, a Gartner CIO survey determined that 80 percent of employees will be eligible to use their own equipment with employee data on board by 2016.

This raises the inevitable question: How will you support work force desire to use personal apps and devices while allowing them to be productive in a secure environment that protects corporate data? The Ten Commandments of BYOD, developed by MaaS360, show you how to create a peaceful, secure and productive mobile environment.
