4imprint Publishes Blue Paper and Podcast: Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to Work

June 9, 2014

4imprint reported that an estimated 85 percent of companies allow employees to bring their own computers, tablets and smartphones to work and sync them with the organization's email, file servers and databases.

Bring your own device (BYOD) can be advantageous for both employees and corporations but it doesn't come without risk. According to a release from the company, 4imprint's newest Blue Paper, podcast and infographic, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to Work: How It Can Be a Thirst Quencher for Your Company, explores the benefits of BYOD including increased productivity and improved responsiveness and also discusses how organizations can mitigate the associated technology and security risks.

An effective BYOD strategy should address technology requirements, IT support guidelines and acceptable use. 4imprint noted that this Blue Paper will discuss in detail BYOD best practices including investment in mobile device management (MDM) software, development of a service policy and providing clear usage policies as well as consequences for misuse.

"Whether your organization is already allowing employees to use their own devices for work or just considering this approach, this Blue Paper may be useful," said Greg Ebel, vice president of sales and marketing, 4imprint. "It includes tips for launching or expanding a successful BYOD program."
