PANEL: BYOD, Meet Bring-Your-Own-Cloud (BYOC); Keeping Data Secure in the Cloud and Personal Device Driven Workplace

Bring your own device (BYOD) has been redefining both the SMB and enterprise workplace for a few years as employees, including C-level executives, increasingly work and exchange company data on personal devices, whether approved or not. Now, with bring-your-own-cloud (BYOC), employees are using free personal cloud options as well, like Google Drive and DropBox, to easily store and access company documents and data from anywhere and everywhere. But, what’s the catch? 

Like personal devices, personal cloud application environments are often incompatible, meaning business processes become disjointed, and employee collaboration and efficiency suffer as a result – not to mention the data security risks associated with unsanctioned cloud tools. 

In order to maintain business continuity and recover employee collaboration, it’s essential for IT departments to implement bothBYOD and cloud solutions that not only offer employees consumer-grade simplicity, but also the ability to seamlessly and securely collaborate. This panel session will explore how companies can manage both BYOD and BYOC in a way that allows employees the collaboration, mobility and data accessibility they have come to expect while simultaneously meeting business continuity and secure data storage requirements. 

Attendees will learn how to strike a balance between employees and IT, so companies can ensure data is protected, and collaboration is easy. They will hear tips and tricks on how to seamlessly integrate BYOD and BYOC into their IT strategies, which includes incorporating mobile device management, conducting security audits, integrating with a central management tool and providing simple solutions. Through the implementation of employee-friendly BYOD and BYOC strategies, attendees will learn how to secure a competitive advantage over those organizations less prepared for the cloud and personal devicedriven workplace.
