In a world where people are always on the go, it’s only natural that employees will use their own mobile platforms more often for collaboration.  However, the increase in the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend for collaboration purposes brings about a number of security concerns in the workplace.

There are multiple capabilities that go into delivering an enterprise-class BYOD solution. The recent attention around the National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance leak may have organizations across the globe reevaluating their strategies when it comes to BYOD security, but there are tools to minimize threats, such as: user authentication, network access control, and remote data wipe

We understand the need for an emphasis on security and have developed the tools to minimize the threat when it comes to your organizations’ BYOD strategy. Please take a look at our CTO of Collaboration, Laurent Philonenko’s recent No Jitter article about the many options and factors to consider when planning your BYOD security strategy.
