Trustlook has released its Q4 Trustlook Insights report which focuses on the latest trends and best practices in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). BYOD is the practice of allowing employees to use personal devices at work. It gives employees freedom over where (and how) they work, and allows companies to spend less in operating expenses. Despite its rising popularity, many employers are still on the fence. If not fully understood and regulated, BYOD can threaten IT security and put a company’s sensitive business systems at risk.
This report is the result of a survey of 320 Trustlook Mobile Security users. Some findings validated existing beliefs, while others were truly fascinating in terms of how BYOD is treated and understood at organizations. Such as:
▪ Only 39% of companies have a formal BYOD policy
▪ 70% of employees use a personal device at work
▪ 86% of companies have no preferred mobile security app
▪ 51% of employees have received no training on BYOD
