Survey Exposes Concerns About Employee Privacy for BYOD

  • Survey Exposes Concerns About Employee Privacy for BYOD-

    Click through for results from a survey on employee concerns over BYOD privacy invasion by employers, conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of Fiberlink.

    Fiberlink®, a leader in cloud-based solutions for secure mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM), recently announced the results of a Harris survey revealing that business users are alarmed about employers' ability to access and collect personally identifiable information (PII) through mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads and Androids.

    As the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend sweeps across the business world, it raises a significant management challenge for companies and has implications that go beyond the IT department. Although many may not know it, some employers are able to track employee locations during work and non-work hours, which applications they've installed and review or delete personal pictures and music.

    Location and app inventory information is available whenever employees "opt-in" to a mobile device management application – the solution that enables BYOD, security, policy enforcement, and app management for many organizations. The removal of personal files, pictures and music is also possible, even if the user is simply getting access to corporate email through Exchange ActiveSync. Unless they are specifically informed through an acceptable user agreement and mobile policy, many employees have no idea that this is possible.

    The Fiberlink-commissioned Harris survey found that business users are overwhelmingly concerned, and would not allow employers to have this access into their personal lives.
