Managing BYOD in Corporate
Environments
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend is pervasive today in organizations of all
sizes and across all industries. It enables users and IT to improve worker
productivity and generate higher employee satisfaction, reduce operational costs,
innovate more quickly, and sustain competitive advantage. BYOD reflects the general
trend of enabling collaboration anytime, anywhere for workers who expect to be just
as productive away from the office as they are when working within their corporate
network (e.g., a presentation that is started on a laptop, revised on a tablet and
approved by team members on a smartphone). Moreover, BYOD enables workers to
achieve a seamless flow of information and access to applications across all of their
devices, whether these devices are supplied by their employer or personally owned.
At the same time, the BYOD trend is also posing challenges to IT to secure and
manage a much more diverse mobile device and application landscape.
More and more employees are bringing their own devices and preferred applications
into the enterprise, creating what we call the BYODA (BYOD plus Applications)
phenomenon. Workers’ behavior and expectations are contributing to the
consumerization of IT, where lines of business and users themselves are having an
enormous influence on the types of technologies and applications used. While
employees expect anytime, anywhere access to their content to get their work done,
their CIOs are now expected to support BYOD within their corporate environment.
ARE YOU PREPARED?
Osterman Research has performed extensive research into the BYODA phenomenon
and has found that it is viewed in one of two ways:
• For organizations that do not address BYODA properly, it represents an increased
risk on a number of fronts, including the possibility of security breaches, malware
intrusion and an inability to meet corporate governance, legal, and regulatory
obligations.
• However, for organizations that address BYODA effectively, there are
tremendous opportunities and benefits that it can provide to organizations of any
size and in any industry.
KEY TAKEAWAYS
• Our research found that BYODA is well entrenched across organizations of all
sizes, so much so that personally-owned smartphones and tablets are found in a
larger proportion of organizations than are employer-supplied and managed
devices.
• Moreover, employee-deployed, cloud-based applications are widely used – for
example, tools like Dropbox, Apple iCloud and Google Docs are used in more
than one-half of organizations.
• IT is aware that BYODA creates some risks for an organization if not managed
properly. Among these risks are an inability to retain and manage corporate
content that may be required for purposes of archiving, regulatory compliance,
eDiscovery or knowledge management; an inability to protect against the
incursion of malware; and an inability to properly scan inbound and outbound
content for sensitive content, inappropriate language and the like.
• BYODA brings many benefits that far outweigh the risks if managed properly.
The risks created by BYODA are not inherent to the mobile devices, cloud-based
applications or mobile apps themselves. Rather, the risks are introduced by
overreliance on managing how the end point devices and applications are
permitted to access corporate data and systems. Moreover, our research found
that there is a disconnect between the perceived risks of BYODA and how well
organizations are addressing them.

izations that
address BYODA
effectively, there
are tremendous
opportunities and
benefits that it
can provide to
organizations of
any size and in
any industry.

Managing BYOD in Corporate
Environments
• With IT management and controls in place, companies can leverage the
productivity benefits that come along with BYODA. Just a few of these benefits
include enabling the anytime, anywhere office; improving employee collaboration
and communication (to get work done, to close a sales deal, or to move a project
along); and reducing corporate costs.
Percentage of Organizations With Mobile Devices in Use
Percentage of Organizations With Personally Deployed Applications
• There are several steps that organizations should take when embracing BYODA,
including understanding how personally-owned devices and self-deployed
applications are used, creating policies to address their use, educating users
about best practices related to these devices and applications, and deploying the
appropriate technologies and applications to mitigate any risks.

Managing BYOD in Corporate
Environments
ABOUT THIS WHITE PAPER
Osterman Research conducted two primary research surveys specifically for this white
paper: an IT-focused survey with 444 individuals, and an end-user survey with 433
individuals. Our goal in conducting this research was to gauge:
• The pervasiveness of BYODA in small, mid-sized and large organizations across a
wide range of industries.
• How well organizations have responded to BYODA in the context of protecting
their data and access to corporate resources.
• What organizations are planning to do to manage the growing use of personally
owned mobile devices and self-deployed applications.
• Whether organizations are fully leveraging all of the advantages that BYODA
offers.
This white paper was sponsored by seven companies: Actiance, Armor5, BlackBerry,
Box, Colligo Networks, GWAVA and Smarsh. Information on each of these companies
is provided at the end of this document.
THE INCREASING USE OF PERSONAL TOOLS IN
THE WORKPLACE
DEFINING “BYOD” AND “BYODA”
The concept of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) – which is part of the larger trend
toward the consumerization of IT – is a simple one: employees use their own devices
to access corporate content and other resources like email, databases and various
applications. It is important to note that the consumerization of IT is not just BYOD:
it also includes social technologies, cloud-based tools to access content in a faster
and easier way, and more consumer-oriented expectations within the workplace. The
popularity of the BYOD trend is demonstrated in the following figure that shows the
majority of iPhone and Android devices used for work-related purposes are personally
owned.

Managing BYOD in Corporate
Environments
Osterman Research expands the definition of BYOD to include the growing number of
cloud-based applications and mobile apps that are also used by employees in the
performance of their work – hence, Bring Your Own Devices and Applications
(BYODA). As discussed later in this white paper, various cloud-based applications are
used extensively, but often without the permission, or sometimes even the
knowledge, of IT.
FACTORS DRIVING THE TREND TOWARD BYODA
The growth toward BYODA is being fueled by a number of factors:
• Employees often have better, faster, newer and more fun devices than those
supplied to them by their IT department. These include the latest and greatest
iPhones and Android devices, iPads and Android tablets, but will increasingly
include the new BlackBerry and, possibly, Windows Phone devices. Quite often,
employees seek out specific smartphones and tablets that offer features that
they desire and are willing to fund themselves. For example, Forrester Research
found that more than one-third of workers are willing to use their own funds to
employ the computer they wanti
.
• The growing trend toward telework (recent developments at Yahoo!
notwithstanding) is also fueling the BYODA trend as employees work increasingly
from home and employ their own desktop computers, laptops, smartphones,
tablets and other infrastructure to do their work. Forrester Research also found
that 37% of employees work from more than one location and 53% do so with
multiple devicesii
. Moreover, employees who are working away from the
corporate network are not subject to the same level of IT supervision imposed
upon them behind the corporate firewall, and so will find it easier to deploy
cloud-based applications, mobile apps, etc. However, it is also important to note
that employees who are in the office also use the same applications as they do
when working remotely.
• Employees increasingly have an expectation of always being connected and of
always having access to content, whether work-related or personal. This
blurring of the work-life separation makes access to corporate data and
resources essential on all devices used by employees.
• IT departments often cannot or will not afford the latest and greatest hardware
because of tight IT budgets and/or the need to apply sound financial principles
to purchase decisions for hardware and other infrastructure – for example,
individuals can swap out their mobile devices in as little as 18 months because of
the financial incentives offered to them by mobile carriers, while organizations
often do not have this luxury. Where the hardware purchase decision is not the
limiting factor, quite often the cost of managing a wide range of different devices
and operating system versions is determined to be too costly.
• IT departments sometimes do not provide all of the features and functionality
that users want, and so they bringing in their own devices, cloud-based
applications, and mobile applications to meet there needs.
• Finally, a growing proportion of organizations are supporting BYOD programs.
For example, Gartner, Inc. found that 38% of US-based CIOs were expected to
support a BYOD program in 2012iii
and a Dell Quest-funded, Vanson Bourne
report found that three out of four IT leaders believe that BYOD can help
employees to be more productiveiv
. Comparing our own survey results with a
survey we conducted in Q2/2012, we found the same proportion of organizations
supporting BYOD, but a larger proportion that plan to do so.
THE GROWTH OF PERSONALLY DEPLOYED TOOLS
There are literally thousands of cloud-based apps, mobile apps and other tools that
employees can use to be more efficient in their work or that can supplement the

capabilities that IT provides for employee use. These applications include those that
provide enhanced email capabilities, file storage, file synchronization, content
collaboration, large file transfer and other capabilities that IT departments will not or
cannot implement. As shown in the following table of the leading cloud-based file
sync and share applications in use, many of these applications have been deployed
by IT in some organizations, but quite often they are deployed without IT’s
knowledge or consent.

INCREASING USE OF CLOUD-BASED APPLICATIONS
Our research found that many cloud-based applications are increasing in use. For
example, comparing this year’s survey results (conducted in Q1/2013) with results
from a survey we conducted in Q2/2012), we found that:
• Use of Box has increased by 28%
• Use of Google Docs has increased by 24%
• Use of Microsoft SkyDrive has increased by 19%
• Use of Dropbox has increased by 4%
WHY ARE CLOUD-BASED TOOLS SO POPULAR?
Reasons for the use of cloud-based file sync, sharing, storage and other tools are
varied and based on a number of factors:
• Many users are simply not satisfied with the status quo of capabilities offered to
them by their IT department and so want to provide their own superset of
features and functions. For example, users who work from home or when
traveling may not want to take files with them on a USB stick and manually
synchronize them when back in the office, and so use a cloud-based file
synchronization service to do this for them.

Managing BYOD in Corporate
Environments
• IT will often impose limits on what users can do in email and other tools. For
example, most email administrators place a limit on the size of files that can be
sent through the corporate email system. While this helps maintain acceptable
levels of email server performance, it can prevent users from sending very large
files as part of their work. Consequently, many users will opt for a free or low-
cost, cloud-based file transfer tool to overcome IT-imposed limits.
• Many users simply prefer the ease of use and optimized interface of cloud-based
applications compared to the more traditional capabilities that IT offers to them.
Users, in effect, are greatly influencing the tools that are brought into the enterprise.
Employees will be much more satisfied, and in turn more productive at their work,
when they have a say in the types of tools and applications that should be used, yet
still meeting the security and information governance requirements of IT.
THE RISKS AND REWARDS OF BYODA
THE RISKS
While IT will be expected to manage all these devices, and the corporate content on
them, it is important to note that the rewards of BYODA far outweigh the risks, and
with a bit of planning in place, IT and the organization as a whole will see the lasting
benefits that it brings. That said, there are some risks associated with BYODA for
those organizations that do not address and manage them properly.
• Content Retention and Management
One of the fundamental risks associated with the BYODA phenomenon is that
organizations may be less able to manage their content. For example, content
that is created and stored on personally owned tablets, stored in a cloud-based
file synchronization tool not approved by IT, or sent via personal Webmail
systems is less accessible to the organization at large. This makes it more
difficult for the organization to know the content it has available for eDiscovery
or regulatory audits, makes it more difficult to access this data when required,
and makes content retention more difficult. This can lead to a greater risk of
evidence spoliation, greater risks in satisfying regulatory obligations, and more
difficulty in managing content retention periods.
• Security and Malware Protection
Because personally owned devices and personally managed cloud applications
often use non-corporate networks for communication and storage, BYODA can
create security-related risks through bypassing of corporate defenses. This
means, for example, that inbound content on personally owned devices or
applications may not be scanned for malware as vigorously as if the data was
sent through the corporate network. Outbound content may bypass corporate
policies that will automatically encrypt, scan for inappropriate content leaving the
organization or otherwise manage the transmission and storage of sensitive data.
This creates a higher level of risk for both data and financial loss.
• Information Governance
Another risk that organizations face from BYODA is the reduced level of
governance that comes from IT’s loss of control over personally owned devices,
corporate data that is sent from and stored on these devices, the loss of control
over access to corporate applications, and the potential loss of intellectual
property that can result from the physical loss of a device that cannot be wiped.
Not to be overlooked is the threat of regulatory or legal sanctions due to
inadequate recordkeeping or supervision. BYODA content is treated as a form of
electronic communication by courts and regulators, so it is subject to the same
rules as those for email. Thus, organizations must take into account regulatory
rules and eDiscovery guidelines when devising their BYODA policies and
procedures.

Moreover, the use of a wide range of devices and operating systems, out-of-date
firmware on devices, and protocols limits an organization’s ability to properly manage
its systems and access to them, simply because IT often does not have the
bandwidth or internal expertise available.
THE BENEFITS OF BYODA OUTWEIGH THE RISKS
There are enormous benefits (and enormous return-on-investment for organizations)
to be gained from the use of personally owned devices and various employee-
managed applications when used for work purposes:
• Employee Productivity
Users can be more efficient and effective in their work if they are enabled with
capabilities that give them access to all of their files, communications tools and
other services from any platform or any location. 71% find that BYODA
increases worker productivity and makes employees much more productive on
mobile devices. Because IT often does not have the budget to enable every
capability for every user, BYODA helps to fill in the gaps that might exist in the
corporate infrastructure. A good case in point is Intel Corporation. The
company has embraced BYODA and has realized a productivity increase of 57
minutes per employee per day as a result, giving the company a three-fold
return on its consumerization investmentsv
.
• Anytime, Anywhere Access
Not only will employees be always connected to do their work, but they’re able
to bring their work to the field. Sales can access their corporate content stored
in a cloud-based application to showcase the latest marketing collateral and
updated pricing information to prospective clients. Doctors can view videos or
review notes before going into a procedure right from their device instead of
going to the ER workstation. Construction field engineers can access project
drawings, specifications, quality records, and predictive safety analysis all via
applications on their tablet while being on the job site.
• Employee Satisfaction
Users want to choose the device they do their work on. They don’t have to use a
device they’re not comfortable with or have to learn another operating device.
No longer do they have to carry a separate “work” phone and “personal” phone,
but BYOD ensures they’re always online and always connected to their work
since they’re using only one device, and the device they want to do their work
on. According to Osterman Research’s survey, approximately 68% of employees
said they were kept happy by being allowed to bring their own device into work.
Employees who are permitted to use their own devices and applications will likely
have higher morale and will be less likely to seek employment elsewhere.
• Decrease in Corporate Costs
Corporate smartphone and tablet costs can be reduced because employees are
supplying their own devices instead of the company funding them. In fact, 35%
of survey respondents whose companies have 1,000+ employees are trying to
reduce spend on their telecom bill. This applies even when employees are
reimbursed by the company with a monthly stipend to cover their mobile device
charges, since the mobile service is managed by the employee, not his or her
employer. This is particularly important for employees who leave an
organization. Osterman Research found in a recent survey that 11% of
organizations are not sure if they are still paying for mobile services for
employees who are no longer employed – for organizations with 2,000 or more
employees, this figure was 17%vi
.
BYODA can also reduce the strain on email servers, bandwidth and other
elements of the corporate infrastructure, potentially reducing costs by
postponing enhancements to or replacements of email servers, storage systems,
etc. 35% of surveyors whose companies have 1,000+ employees are committed

to leveraging the cloud for IT services and moving their workloads onto the
cloud. Clearly they see the advantages that the cloud brings.
• Competitive Advantage and Increase in Revenue:
Having a permissive BYODA policy can give an organization a competitive
advantage and actually improve corporate revenue. This is achieved through:
o Increase in productivity
o Enhanced team communication and collaboration
o Improved work processes and efficiencies
o Higher customer service rate / faster response times
o Access to applications based on role
o Speed of innovation
Employee communication and collaboration can be improved through the use of
social media, text messaging, document sharing, mobile apps and other tools.
IT should be improving these capabilities rather than recommending that they
should not become involved in the consumerization trend.
• Innovation
Mobile is changing the way we work. It’s no longer just an access point;
employees are able to get their work done faster and better through accessing
the right tools and technologies right in their hands wherever they are (whether
at home, in the workplace, at a client visit, or on the job site). 51% of all
companies surveyed see mobile as truly transformative, a way to get ahead of
the competition and maintain their competitive advantage. It’s solving multiple
business problems and through the use of BYODA, we’re able to reexamine how
we engage with our customers, partners and suppliers, and think through the
impact of how we can make core critical services available on these devices at a
time when the way users interact with technology on their smartphones and
tablets are changing everyday.
Our research found that a large proportion of organizations consider several key
attributes of BYODA are important or very important reasons to support the use of
personally owned devices, as shown in the following table.

THE CURRENT CORPORATE DISCONNECT
One of the more important findings from our research is that many organizations are
not protecting themselves from the risks associated with unmanaged BYODA. We
asked respondents to rate the seriousness of problems on a scale of 1 (not serious at
all) to 5 (very serious), as well as their management of them on a scale of 1 (not well
at all) to 5 (very well). As shown in the following figure, while organizations view a
variety of issues in BYODA management as serious or very serious, a much smaller
proportion consider that they manage these issues well or very well.
Seriousness of Issues vs. How Well They are Managed
There are significant gaps presented by BYODA that organizations have yet to fill,
particularly in the context of data security and content management. Our research
found that the problem is even more serious for smaller organizations that often do
not have the IT staff, budgets or expertise to match their requirements with the
appropriate controls to protect data and other corporate assets.
Another way of looking at this data is in terms of how well organizations manage
problems, even those that they do not consider serious. For example, our research
found that for the most serious problem – the security of corporate data stored on
mobile devices – 57% of respondents believe that their management of the issue is
insufficient given the seriousness of the problem, while 43% believe that they are
managing the problem well enough. Similarly, 54% believe that their management of
lost devices is insufficient to remedy the problem.
ORGANIZATIONS CAN PROTECT THEMSELVES IF THEY
MANAGE BYODA PROPERLY
It is important to note, however, that organizations are able to protect themselves
from these risks if they have developed the appropriate policies and deployed
technology solutions to address the specific risks that they face. In other words, the
problems created by BYODA are not inherent in the particular mobile devices or
applications that employees own or self-deploy, but rather in organizations’
willingness to implement detailed and thorough policies and the right technologies
focused on remediating these problems.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MANAGING BYOD
UNDERSTAND THE BENEFITS AND RISKS OF BYOD
One of the most important steps in approaching the BYODA phenomenon is to
appreciate just how pervasive it is in most organizations, as shown in the table on the
next page. While most believe that many of their employees are using personal
smartphones and tablets (given that senior managers themselves often were the
early adopters of BYODA after the introduction of the iPhone), they may not fully
understand just how widespread this phenomenon has become within their
organizations. Senior managers must understand:
• How personally-owned smartphones and tablets, as well as personally deployed
applications, are used throughout the organization
• What types of data they access and store
• The many (typically good) reasons for their use
• The applications and technologies that are adopted/demanded by users while
still meeting the requirements and the needs of IT
It is essential that decision makers consider their options for managing BYODA.
While some may opt for restrictive – perhaps draconian – policies that limit or
prevent employees from using personally owned smartphones or tablets, or that
prohibit the use of cloud-based applications or mobile apps of any kind, Osterman
Research recommends the opposite approach: namely embrace BYODA and the
overall trend toward the consumerization of IT, realizing that the trend is not going
away and that it can provide numerous benefits. In fact, an improving economy that
provides employees more choice on where and how they work makes opposing
BYODA even more difficult.
As part of the BYODA analysis process, we recommend that decision makers survey
employees about what their work requires.
• Do they need particular applications that will enable them to be more
productive?
• How does the use of personally owned devices and self-deployed applications
impact current business processes?
• How important are various capabilities to end users, such as viewing documents,
sharing status updates with others, or collaborating with colleagues?
Ensuring that management understands how BYODA impacts end users will go a long
way toward helping them develop the right policies to both protect the organization
and enable end users with the tools they need to be efficient and productive.
DEVELOP A PROGRAM AND IMPLEMENT POLICIES TO
PROTECT THE ORGANIZATION
It is vital that organizations implement BYODA policies about acceptable use of
personally owned devices and self-deployed applications. This might include creating
a list of approved devices, operating systems and operating system versions, cloud-
based applications, mobile apps, etc. These policies should be as detailed and
thorough as necessary, and should be included in an organization’s overall set of
acceptable use policies that are focused on use of all corporate computing resources
and access to them.
An important element of these policies as they apply to mobile devices should be that
any mobile device – whether company-supplied or employee-owned – must be wipe-
able by the IT department in the event of its loss, that all devices be scannable for

have not yet implemented these capabilities fully.

Moreover, corporate policies focused on employee-managed applications should
include requirements for the encryption of data if stored in a third party’s cloud data
center. They should also include requirements that mobile devices are encrypted so
that corporate data and access to it is not compromised if a device is lost. Policies
should also reflect specific regulatory and legal requirements, in addition to industry
and corporate best practices.
EDUCATE USERS ABOUT BEST PRACTICES
Another important step in managing BYODA is educating users about best practices
related to the use of personal devices and self-deployed applications. This should
include how to properly access and manage corporate data and other resources,
which applications represent a risk to corporate security and which are safe to use,
the types of communications that are appropriate over various types of cloud-based
applications and mobile apps, where it is not appropriate to access sensitive
corporate applications or databases (public Wi-Fi or certain countries, for example) if

simply to create a list of do’s and don’ts, but rather to help gain employee buy-in and
adherence to corporate policies.

DEPLOY THE APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGIES
It is also important to deploy the appropriate technologies that will enable
organizations to manage BYODA properly. This includes:
• Systems focused on mobile device management (MDM)
• Malware detection and remediation
• File sharing and collaboration
• Content inspection
• Archiving
• Encryption
• Other tools, as appropriate.
As shown in the table above, the majority of organizations can remotely wipe both
company-supplied and personal devices, although far fewer have yet to deploy a
variety of other capabilities.
OTHER CONSIDERATIONS IN DEPLOYING BYODA-FOCUSED
TECHNOLOGIES
• One important aspect of deploying the appropriate technologies should come
from information gleaned during the employee survey phase. For example, if the
survey reveals that employees have deployed a consumer-focused file-
synchronization tool that does not meet IT’s requirements for corporate data
security, an alternative should be offered that provides the ease of use of the
consumer-focused tool, but with the security capabilities that will meet the needs
of the organization.
• With regard to MDM, BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) continues to be the
dominant solution in place today – our research found that 61% of organizations
today use BES, although Microsoft Systems Center Mobile Device Manager is
gaining traction along with several other solutions. However, in the enterprise

corporate content

in BYODA,

management
(MCM) solution.

Managing BYOD in Corporate
Environments
market (1,000+ seats), BES currently has an even more dominant share and is
expected to retain its leading role over the next 12 months, largely because of its
robust security model.
• Since access to corporate content plays a huge role in BYODA, organizations
should consider a mobile content management (MCM) solution, built for
enterprises for scale, security and compliance – solution should include
integration with Active Directory and Single Sign-On solutions, remote wipe as
well as lightweight mobile device management, full encryption at rest and
transfer, and integration with leading data loss prevention providers, and
relevant certifications such as SSAE 16 Type II SOC 1, SOC 2, Safe Harbor,
HIPAA and HITECH among others. Businesses who want to move their
employees away from a personal cloud solution should look to Box, who has a
strong enterprise, security and mobility focus while still meeting the expected
end-user experience enabling users to easily discover, connect to, engage with,
and share content more effectively.
• Businesses that want to move their employees away from a personal cloud
solution should look to one that has a strong enterprise, security and mobility
focus while still meeting the expected end-user experience. This might include
cloud-based file-sharing and collaboration solutions or Virtual Desktop Interface
(VDI) technology that can allow IT to manage both the user experience and
access to corporate applications. However, we believe that the fundamental
consideration here should be the deployment of “smart VDI” technologies that
provide very high performance, the ability to offer smoother and more fluid
collaboration and that negate the need to manage individual devices, but instead
any device that might connect to the corporate network.
• In some cases, it may be appropriate to ban specific applications, although we
recommend doing this as little as possible. For example, a user of a company-
supplied iPhone who implements iCloud can make a backup of all corporate and
personal data. If the employee leaves the company and buys a personal iPhone
or receives one from his or her next employer, accessing their personal iCloud
account will download all of the previous employer’s content onto the new
device.
• Moreover, decision makers should seriously consider deploying technologies that
will segment personal and work data on mobile devices. Our research found that
a large proportion of organizations either have plans to do so or they are
considering doing so, as shown in the following table. For example, we believe
that organizations will increasingly deploy solutions that will allow the
management of multiple platforms via a single pane of glass, offering full MDM
capabilities. At the client level, we also believe there will be increasing use of
solutions that will enable seamless management of personal and work personas
on both company-supplied and personal devices. Solutions like BlackBerry
Balance or VMware Horizon Workspace permit a single device to contain
separate work and personal applications and content, permitting IT to remotely
wipe company-managed content without impacting employees’ personal content.

THE BENEFITS OF THE CLOUD
Finally, while many decision makers may resist the use of cloud-based applications,
fearing that corporate data security or information governance requirements may be
compromised, we recommend that decision makers fully embrace the cloud. Reasons
for doing so include the ability to improve employee productivity, enable more
efficient collaboration and reduce costs, among other benefits. While resistance to
the cloud is understandable, particularly in industries that tend to be more staid or
that have a significant number of regulatory obligations to satisfy, cloud-based tools
can provide enormous benefits.
Key reasons to embrace the cloud include:
• Leading enterprise cloud vendors have invested significantly in making their data
centers, staff, product development and release cycles secure via SSAE Type II
third-party audits.
• The ability to shift from a capital expense/depreciation (CAPEX) economic model
to an operating expense (OPEX) model that permits organizations to pay only for
the services they need.
• The ability to avoid the expense related to “shelfware” – IT investments that are
not fully used or that take a long time to become used for mission-critical
applications.
• The ability to reduce storage, file server, VPN, data replication and email storage
costs by shifting functionality away from in-house infrastructure.
• The ability (with the right providers) to implement robust and improved business
continuity capabilities for critical corporate systems.
• Finally, the right cloud providers can improve an organization’s security,
compliance and corporate governance posture.
SUMMARY
The BYODA trend is enormously beneficial for organizations on a number of levels:
• Organizations can leverage mobile applications, including ones that enable
employees to get work done anytime, anywhere, as well as collaboration around
content that applies to a group project or piece of content that employees need
to work on. Developers are increasingly building applications specific to a
business' needs to enable their workers to get more work done while remote.
• BYODA fits in nicely with the increasing trend toward multi-platform
environments, including the trend toward having applications available on all
platforms – desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets.
• Innovation will continue to take place with mobile devices and cloud-based
mobile applications. Those who don't put mobile at the core of their workforce
mobile strategy will miss out.
The BYODA trend is here to stay, and so decision makers need to understand the
new reality of employees accessing corporate data and other resources with their
own devices and via cloud-based applications and mobile apps that they have
deployed themselves. Consequently, decision makers must do three things:
• Develop policies that will address the risks associated with unfettered use of
BYODA.

• Implement technologies that will prevent data leaks, archive content, encrypt
content and devices, prevent data loss, and otherwise mitigate the risks
associated with unmanaged use of personally owned devices and self-deployed
applications.
• Where appropriate, implement replacements for employees’ self-deployed
applications that will provide the same ease of use, but that offer better
protection of corporate data and other assets.
With the right BYODA program in place, IT will see the huge opportunity it brings as
well as being able to become more secure by being in control of all corporate
content; and how it is accessed, managed and shared.

Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments

  • 2. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 1 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend is pervasive today in organizations of all sizes and across all industries. It enables users and IT to improve worker productivity and generate higher employee satisfaction, reduce operational costs, innovate more quickly, and sustain competitive advantage. BYOD reflects the general trend of enabling collaboration anytime, anywhere for workers who expect to be just as productive away from the office as they are when working within their corporate network (e.g., a presentation that is started on a laptop, revised on a tablet and approved by team members on a smartphone). Moreover, BYOD enables workers to achieve a seamless flow of information and access to applications across all of their devices, whether these devices are supplied by their employer or personally owned. At the same time, the BYOD trend is also posing challenges to IT to secure and manage a much more diverse mobile device and application landscape. More and more employees are bringing their own devices and preferred applications into the enterprise, creating what we call the BYODA (BYOD plus Applications) phenomenon. Workers’ behavior and expectations are contributing to the consumerization of IT, where lines of business and users themselves are having an enormous influence on the types of technologies and applications used. While employees expect anytime, anywhere access to their content to get their work done, their CIOs are now expected to support BYOD within their corporate environment. ARE YOU PREPARED? Osterman Research has performed extensive research into the BYODA phenomenon and has found that it is viewed in one of two ways: • For organizations that do not address BYODA properly, it represents an increased risk on a number of fronts, including the possibility of security breaches, malware intrusion and an inability to meet corporate governance, legal, and regulatory obligations. • However, for organizations that address BYODA effectively, there are tremendous opportunities and benefits that it can provide to organizations of any size and in any industry. KEY TAKEAWAYS • Our research found that BYODA is well entrenched across organizations of all sizes, so much so that personally-owned smartphones and tablets are found in a larger proportion of organizations than are employer-supplied and managed devices. • Moreover, employee-deployed, cloud-based applications are widely used – for example, tools like Dropbox, Apple iCloud and Google Docs are used in more than one-half of organizations. • IT is aware that BYODA creates some risks for an organization if not managed properly. Among these risks are an inability to retain and manage corporate content that may be required for purposes of archiving, regulatory compliance, eDiscovery or knowledge management; an inability to protect against the incursion of malware; and an inability to properly scan inbound and outbound content for sensitive content, inappropriate language and the like. • BYODA brings many benefits that far outweigh the risks if managed properly. The risks created by BYODA are not inherent to the mobile devices, cloud-based applications or mobile apps themselves. Rather, the risks are introduced by overreliance on managing how the end point devices and applications are permitted to access corporate data and systems. Moreover, our research found that there is a disconnect between the perceived risks of BYODA and how well organizations are addressing them. For organ- izations that address BYODA effectively, there are tremendous opportunities and benefits that it can provide to organizations of any size and in any industry.
  • 3. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 2 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments • With IT management and controls in place, companies can leverage the productivity benefits that come along with BYODA. Just a few of these benefits include enabling the anytime, anywhere office; improving employee collaboration and communication (to get work done, to close a sales deal, or to move a project along); and reducing corporate costs. Percentage of Organizations With Mobile Devices in Use Percentage of Organizations With Personally Deployed Applications • There are several steps that organizations should take when embracing BYODA, including understanding how personally-owned devices and self-deployed applications are used, creating policies to address their use, educating users about best practices related to these devices and applications, and deploying the appropriate technologies and applications to mitigate any risks. There are several steps that organizations should take when embracing BYODA, including understanding how personally- owned devices and self-deployed applications are used.
  • 4. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 3 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments ABOUT THIS WHITE PAPER Osterman Research conducted two primary research surveys specifically for this white paper: an IT-focused survey with 444 individuals, and an end-user survey with 433 individuals. Our goal in conducting this research was to gauge: • The pervasiveness of BYODA in small, mid-sized and large organizations across a wide range of industries. • How well organizations have responded to BYODA in the context of protecting their data and access to corporate resources. • What organizations are planning to do to manage the growing use of personally owned mobile devices and self-deployed applications. • Whether organizations are fully leveraging all of the advantages that BYODA offers. This white paper was sponsored by seven companies: Actiance, Armor5, BlackBerry, Box, Colligo Networks, GWAVA and Smarsh. Information on each of these companies is provided at the end of this document. THE INCREASING USE OF PERSONAL TOOLS IN THE WORKPLACE DEFINING “BYOD” AND “BYODA” The concept of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) – which is part of the larger trend toward the consumerization of IT – is a simple one: employees use their own devices to access corporate content and other resources like email, databases and various applications. It is important to note that the consumerization of IT is not just BYOD: it also includes social technologies, cloud-based tools to access content in a faster and easier way, and more consumer-oriented expectations within the workplace. The popularity of the BYOD trend is demonstrated in the following figure that shows the majority of iPhone and Android devices used for work-related purposes are personally owned. Primary Mobile Device in Use as Reported by End Users Consumerization of IT is not just BYOD: it also includes social technologies, cloud-based tools for access to content in a faster and easier way, and more consumer- oriented expectations within the workplace.
  • 5. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 4 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments Osterman Research expands the definition of BYOD to include the growing number of cloud-based applications and mobile apps that are also used by employees in the performance of their work – hence, Bring Your Own Devices and Applications (BYODA). As discussed later in this white paper, various cloud-based applications are used extensively, but often without the permission, or sometimes even the knowledge, of IT. FACTORS DRIVING THE TREND TOWARD BYODA The growth toward BYODA is being fueled by a number of factors: • Employees often have better, faster, newer and more fun devices than those supplied to them by their IT department. These include the latest and greatest iPhones and Android devices, iPads and Android tablets, but will increasingly include the new BlackBerry and, possibly, Windows Phone devices. Quite often, employees seek out specific smartphones and tablets that offer features that they desire and are willing to fund themselves. For example, Forrester Research found that more than one-third of workers are willing to use their own funds to employ the computer they wanti . • The growing trend toward telework (recent developments at Yahoo! notwithstanding) is also fueling the BYODA trend as employees work increasingly from home and employ their own desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets and other infrastructure to do their work. Forrester Research also found that 37% of employees work from more than one location and 53% do so with multiple devicesii . Moreover, employees who are working away from the corporate network are not subject to the same level of IT supervision imposed upon them behind the corporate firewall, and so will find it easier to deploy cloud-based applications, mobile apps, etc. However, it is also important to note that employees who are in the office also use the same applications as they do when working remotely. • Employees increasingly have an expectation of always being connected and of always having access to content, whether work-related or personal. This blurring of the work-life separation makes access to corporate data and resources essential on all devices used by employees. • IT departments often cannot or will not afford the latest and greatest hardware because of tight IT budgets and/or the need to apply sound financial principles to purchase decisions for hardware and other infrastructure – for example, individuals can swap out their mobile devices in as little as 18 months because of the financial incentives offered to them by mobile carriers, while organizations often do not have this luxury. Where the hardware purchase decision is not the limiting factor, quite often the cost of managing a wide range of different devices and operating system versions is determined to be too costly. • IT departments sometimes do not provide all of the features and functionality that users want, and so they bringing in their own devices, cloud-based applications, and mobile applications to meet there needs. • Finally, a growing proportion of organizations are supporting BYOD programs. For example, Gartner, Inc. found that 38% of US-based CIOs were expected to support a BYOD program in 2012iii and a Dell Quest-funded, Vanson Bourne report found that three out of four IT leaders believe that BYOD can help employees to be more productiveiv . Comparing our own survey results with a survey we conducted in Q2/2012, we found the same proportion of organizations supporting BYOD, but a larger proportion that plan to do so. THE GROWTH OF PERSONALLY DEPLOYED TOOLS There are literally thousands of cloud-based apps, mobile apps and other tools that employees can use to be more efficient in their work or that can supplement the Blurring of the work-life separation makes access to corporate data and resources essential on all devices used by employees.
  • 6. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 5 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments capabilities that IT provides for employee use. These applications include those that provide enhanced email capabilities, file storage, file synchronization, content collaboration, large file transfer and other capabilities that IT departments will not or cannot implement. As shown in the following table of the leading cloud-based file sync and share applications in use, many of these applications have been deployed by IT in some organizations, but quite often they are deployed without IT’s knowledge or consent. Leading Cloud-Based Applications Deployed by Users Based on % of Organizations Application Up to 99 Employees 100-999 Employees 1,000+ Employees Dropbox Deployed by IT 17.3% 12.2% 5.7% Used with IT’s blessing 39.5% 26.3% 13.2% Used w/o IT’s blessing 21.0% 31.4% 43.1% Not used 22.2% 30.1% 37.9% Apple iCloud Deployed by IT 10.1% 13.5% 7.0% Used with IT’s blessing 34.2% 22.4% 21.1% Used w/o IT’s blessing 20.3% 23.7% 33.3% Not used 35.4% 40.4% 38.6% Google Drive Deployed by IT 7.7% 6.6% 6.7% Used with IT’s blessing 28.2% 20.5% 11.0% Used w/o IT’s blessing 20.5% 27.8% 37.8% Not used 43.6% 45.0% 44.5% Google Docs Deployed by IT 7.7% 12.7% 10.6% Used with IT’s blessing 25.6% 26.0% 12.9% Used w/o IT’s blessing 19.2% 27.3% 38.8% Not used 47.4% 34.0% 37.6% Microsoft SkyDrive Deployed by IT 21.0% 10.7% 10.8% Used with IT’s blessing 33.3% 24.8% 10.8% Used w/o IT’s blessing 7.4% 17.4% 28.3% Not used 38.3% 47.0% 50.0% INCREASING USE OF CLOUD-BASED APPLICATIONS Our research found that many cloud-based applications are increasing in use. For example, comparing this year’s survey results (conducted in Q1/2013) with results from a survey we conducted in Q2/2012), we found that: • Use of Box has increased by 28% • Use of Google Docs has increased by 24% • Use of Microsoft SkyDrive has increased by 19% • Use of Dropbox has increased by 4% WHY ARE CLOUD-BASED TOOLS SO POPULAR? Reasons for the use of cloud-based file sync, sharing, storage and other tools are varied and based on a number of factors: • Many users are simply not satisfied with the status quo of capabilities offered to them by their IT department and so want to provide their own superset of features and functions. For example, users who work from home or when traveling may not want to take files with them on a USB stick and manually synchronize them when back in the office, and so use a cloud-based file synchronization service to do this for them.
  • 7. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 6 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments • IT will often impose limits on what users can do in email and other tools. For example, most email administrators place a limit on the size of files that can be sent through the corporate email system. While this helps maintain acceptable levels of email server performance, it can prevent users from sending very large files as part of their work. Consequently, many users will opt for a free or low- cost, cloud-based file transfer tool to overcome IT-imposed limits. • Many users simply prefer the ease of use and optimized interface of cloud-based applications compared to the more traditional capabilities that IT offers to them. Users, in effect, are greatly influencing the tools that are brought into the enterprise. Employees will be much more satisfied, and in turn more productive at their work, when they have a say in the types of tools and applications that should be used, yet still meeting the security and information governance requirements of IT. THE RISKS AND REWARDS OF BYODA THE RISKS While IT will be expected to manage all these devices, and the corporate content on them, it is important to note that the rewards of BYODA far outweigh the risks, and with a bit of planning in place, IT and the organization as a whole will see the lasting benefits that it brings. That said, there are some risks associated with BYODA for those organizations that do not address and manage them properly. • Content Retention and Management One of the fundamental risks associated with the BYODA phenomenon is that organizations may be less able to manage their content. For example, content that is created and stored on personally owned tablets, stored in a cloud-based file synchronization tool not approved by IT, or sent via personal Webmail systems is less accessible to the organization at large. This makes it more difficult for the organization to know the content it has available for eDiscovery or regulatory audits, makes it more difficult to access this data when required, and makes content retention more difficult. This can lead to a greater risk of evidence spoliation, greater risks in satisfying regulatory obligations, and more difficulty in managing content retention periods. • Security and Malware Protection Because personally owned devices and personally managed cloud applications often use non-corporate networks for communication and storage, BYODA can create security-related risks through bypassing of corporate defenses. This means, for example, that inbound content on personally owned devices or applications may not be scanned for malware as vigorously as if the data was sent through the corporate network. Outbound content may bypass corporate policies that will automatically encrypt, scan for inappropriate content leaving the organization or otherwise manage the transmission and storage of sensitive data. This creates a higher level of risk for both data and financial loss. • Information Governance Another risk that organizations face from BYODA is the reduced level of governance that comes from IT’s loss of control over personally owned devices, corporate data that is sent from and stored on these devices, the loss of control over access to corporate applications, and the potential loss of intellectual property that can result from the physical loss of a device that cannot be wiped. Not to be overlooked is the threat of regulatory or legal sanctions due to inadequate recordkeeping or supervision. BYODA content is treated as a form of electronic communication by courts and regulators, so it is subject to the same rules as those for email. Thus, organizations must take into account regulatory rules and eDiscovery guidelines when devising their BYODA policies and procedures. Employees will be much more satisfied, and in turn more productive at their work, when they have a say in the types of tools and applications that should be used.
  • 8. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 7 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments Moreover, the use of a wide range of devices and operating systems, out-of-date firmware on devices, and protocols limits an organization’s ability to properly manage its systems and access to them, simply because IT often does not have the bandwidth or internal expertise available. THE BENEFITS OF BYODA OUTWEIGH THE RISKS There are enormous benefits (and enormous return-on-investment for organizations) to be gained from the use of personally owned devices and various employee- managed applications when used for work purposes: • Employee Productivity Users can be more efficient and effective in their work if they are enabled with capabilities that give them access to all of their files, communications tools and other services from any platform or any location. 71% find that BYODA increases worker productivity and makes employees much more productive on mobile devices. Because IT often does not have the budget to enable every capability for every user, BYODA helps to fill in the gaps that might exist in the corporate infrastructure. A good case in point is Intel Corporation. The company has embraced BYODA and has realized a productivity increase of 57 minutes per employee per day as a result, giving the company a three-fold return on its consumerization investmentsv . • Anytime, Anywhere Access Not only will employees be always connected to do their work, but they’re able to bring their work to the field. Sales can access their corporate content stored in a cloud-based application to showcase the latest marketing collateral and updated pricing information to prospective clients. Doctors can view videos or review notes before going into a procedure right from their device instead of going to the ER workstation. Construction field engineers can access project drawings, specifications, quality records, and predictive safety analysis all via applications on their tablet while being on the job site. • Employee Satisfaction Users want to choose the device they do their work on. They don’t have to use a device they’re not comfortable with or have to learn another operating device. No longer do they have to carry a separate “work” phone and “personal” phone, but BYOD ensures they’re always online and always connected to their work since they’re using only one device, and the device they want to do their work on. According to Osterman Research’s survey, approximately 68% of employees said they were kept happy by being allowed to bring their own device into work. Employees who are permitted to use their own devices and applications will likely have higher morale and will be less likely to seek employment elsewhere. • Decrease in Corporate Costs Corporate smartphone and tablet costs can be reduced because employees are supplying their own devices instead of the company funding them. In fact, 35% of survey respondents whose companies have 1,000+ employees are trying to reduce spend on their telecom bill. This applies even when employees are reimbursed by the company with a monthly stipend to cover their mobile device charges, since the mobile service is managed by the employee, not his or her employer. This is particularly important for employees who leave an organization. Osterman Research found in a recent survey that 11% of organizations are not sure if they are still paying for mobile services for employees who are no longer employed – for organizations with 2,000 or more employees, this figure was 17%vi . BYODA can also reduce the strain on email servers, bandwidth and other elements of the corporate infrastructure, potentially reducing costs by postponing enhancements to or replacements of email servers, storage systems, etc. 35% of surveyors whose companies have 1,000+ employees are committed Users can be more efficient and effective in their work if they are enabled with capabilities that give them access to all of their files, commun- ications tools and other services from any platform or any location.

Clearly they see the advantages that the cloud brings. • Competitive Advantage and Increase in Revenue: Having a permissive BYODA policy can give an organization a competitive advantage and actually improve corporate revenue. This is achieved through: o Increase in productivity o Enhanced team communication and collaboration o Improved work processes and efficiencies o Higher customer service rate / faster response times o Access to applications based on role o Speed of innovation Employee communication and collaboration can be improved through the use of social media, text messaging, document sharing, mobile apps and other tools. IT should be improving these capabilities rather than recommending that they should not become involved in the consumerization trend. • Innovation Mobile is changing the way we work. It’s no longer just an access point; employees are able to get their work done faster and better through accessing the right tools and technologies right in their hands wherever they are (whether at home, in the workplace, at a client visit, or on the job site). 51% of all companies surveyed see mobile as truly transformative, a way to get ahead of the competition and maintain their competitive advantage. It’s solving multiple business problems and through the use of BYODA, we’re able to reexamine how we engage with our customers, partners and suppliers, and think through the impact of how we can make core critical services available on these devices at a time when the way users interact with technology on their smartphones and tablets are changing everyday. Our research found that a large proportion of organizations consider several key attributes of BYODA are important or very important reasons to support the use of personally owned devices, as shown in the following table.

  • 10. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 9 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments THE CURRENT CORPORATE DISCONNECT One of the more important findings from our research is that many organizations are not protecting themselves from the risks associated with unmanaged BYODA. We asked respondents to rate the seriousness of problems on a scale of 1 (not serious at all) to 5 (very serious), as well as their management of them on a scale of 1 (not well at all) to 5 (very well). As shown in the following figure, while organizations view a variety of issues in BYODA management as serious or very serious, a much smaller proportion consider that they manage these issues well or very well. Seriousness of Issues vs. How Well They are Managed There are significant gaps presented by BYODA that organizations have yet to fill, particularly in the context of data security and content management. Our research found that the problem is even more serious for smaller organizations that often do not have the IT staff, budgets or expertise to match their requirements with the appropriate controls to protect data and other corporate assets. Another way of looking at this data is in terms of how well organizations manage problems, even those that they do not consider serious. For example, our research found that for the most serious problem – the security of corporate data stored on mobile devices – 57% of respondents believe that their management of the issue is insufficient given the seriousness of the problem, while 43% believe that they are managing the problem well enough. Similarly, 54% believe that their management of lost devices is insufficient to remedy the problem. ORGANIZATIONS CAN PROTECT THEMSELVES IF THEY MANAGE BYODA PROPERLY It is important to note, however, that organizations are able to protect themselves from these risks if they have developed the appropriate policies and deployed technology solutions to address the specific risks that they face. In other words, the problems created by BYODA are not inherent in the particular mobile devices or applications that employees own or self-deploy, but rather in organizations’ willingness to implement detailed and thorough policies and the right technologies focused on remediating these problems. There are significant gaps presented by BYODA that organizations have yet to fill, particularly in the context of data security and content management.
  • 11. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 10 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MANAGING BYOD UNDERSTAND THE BENEFITS AND RISKS OF BYOD One of the most important steps in approaching the BYODA phenomenon is to appreciate just how pervasive it is in most organizations, as shown in the table on the next page. While most believe that many of their employees are using personal smartphones and tablets (given that senior managers themselves often were the early adopters of BYODA after the introduction of the iPhone), they may not fully understand just how widespread this phenomenon has become within their organizations. Senior managers must understand: • How personally-owned smartphones and tablets, as well as personally deployed applications, are used throughout the organization • What types of data they access and store • The many (typically good) reasons for their use • The applications and technologies that are adopted/demanded by users while still meeting the requirements and the needs of IT It is essential that decision makers consider their options for managing BYODA. While some may opt for restrictive – perhaps draconian – policies that limit or prevent employees from using personally owned smartphones or tablets, or that prohibit the use of cloud-based applications or mobile apps of any kind, Osterman Research recommends the opposite approach: namely embrace BYODA and the overall trend toward the consumerization of IT, realizing that the trend is not going away and that it can provide numerous benefits. In fact, an improving economy that provides employees more choice on where and how they work makes opposing BYODA even more difficult. As part of the BYODA analysis process, we recommend that decision makers survey employees about what their work requires. • Do they need particular applications that will enable them to be more productive? • How does the use of personally owned devices and self-deployed applications impact current business processes? • How important are various capabilities to end users, such as viewing documents, sharing status updates with others, or collaborating with colleagues? Ensuring that management understands how BYODA impacts end users will go a long way toward helping them develop the right policies to both protect the organization and enable end users with the tools they need to be efficient and productive. DEVELOP A PROGRAM AND IMPLEMENT POLICIES TO PROTECT THE ORGANIZATION It is vital that organizations implement BYODA policies about acceptable use of personally owned devices and self-deployed applications. This might include creating a list of approved devices, operating systems and operating system versions, cloud- based applications, mobile apps, etc. These policies should be as detailed and thorough as necessary, and should be included in an organization’s overall set of acceptable use policies that are focused on use of all corporate computing resources and access to them. An important element of these policies as they apply to mobile devices should be that any mobile device – whether company-supplied or employee-owned – must be wipe- able by the IT department in the event of its loss, that all devices be scannable for The problems created by BYODA are not inherent in the particular mobile devices or applications that employees own or self-deploy, but rather in organizations’ willingness to implement detailed and thorough policies and the right technologies focused on remediating these problems.

They should also include requirements that mobile devices are encrypted so that corporate data and access to it is not compromised if a device is lost. Policies should also reflect specific regulatory and legal requirements, in addition to industry and corporate best practices. EDUCATE USERS ABOUT BEST PRACTICES Another important step in managing BYODA is educating users about best practices related to the use of personal devices and self-deployed applications. This should include how to properly access and manage corporate data and other resources, which applications represent a risk to corporate security and which are safe to use, the types of communications that are appropriate over various types of cloud-based applications and mobile apps, where it is not appropriate to access sensitive corporate applications or databases (public Wi-Fi or certain countries, for example) if appropriate encryption or VPN capabilities are not in place, etc. The goal is not simply to create a list of do’s and don’ts, but rather to help gain employee buy-in and adherence to corporate policies. Corporate policies focused on employee- managed applications should include requirements for the encryption of data if stored in a third party’s cloud data center.

This includes: • Systems focused on mobile device management (MDM) • Malware detection and remediation • File sharing and collaboration • Content inspection • Archiving • Encryption • Other tools, as appropriate. As shown in the table above, the majority of organizations can remotely wipe both company-supplied and personal devices, although far fewer have yet to deploy a variety of other capabilities. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS IN DEPLOYING BYODA-FOCUSED TECHNOLOGIES • One important aspect of deploying the appropriate technologies should come from information gleaned during the employee survey phase. For example, if the survey reveals that employees have deployed a consumer-focused file- synchronization tool that does not meet IT’s requirements for corporate data security, an alternative should be offered that provides the ease of use of the consumer-focused tool, but with the security capabilities that will meet the needs of the organization. • With regard to MDM, BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) continues to be the dominant solution in place today – our research found that 61% of organizations today use BES, although Microsoft Systems Center Mobile Device Manager is gaining traction along with several other solutions. However, in the enterprise Since access to corporate content plays a huge role in BYODA, organizations should consider a mobile content management (MCM) solution.
  • 14. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 13 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments market (1,000+ seats), BES currently has an even more dominant share and is expected to retain its leading role over the next 12 months, largely because of its robust security model. • Since access to corporate content plays a huge role in BYODA, organizations should consider a mobile content management (MCM) solution, built for enterprises for scale, security and compliance – solution should include integration with Active Directory and Single Sign-On solutions, remote wipe as well as lightweight mobile device management, full encryption at rest and transfer, and integration with leading data loss prevention providers, and relevant certifications such as SSAE 16 Type II SOC 1, SOC 2, Safe Harbor, HIPAA and HITECH among others. Businesses who want to move their employees away from a personal cloud solution should look to Box, who has a strong enterprise, security and mobility focus while still meeting the expected end-user experience enabling users to easily discover, connect to, engage with, and share content more effectively. • Businesses that want to move their employees away from a personal cloud solution should look to one that has a strong enterprise, security and mobility focus while still meeting the expected end-user experience. This might include cloud-based file-sharing and collaboration solutions or Virtual Desktop Interface (VDI) technology that can allow IT to manage both the user experience and access to corporate applications. However, we believe that the fundamental consideration here should be the deployment of “smart VDI” technologies that provide very high performance, the ability to offer smoother and more fluid collaboration and that negate the need to manage individual devices, but instead any device that might connect to the corporate network. • In some cases, it may be appropriate to ban specific applications, although we recommend doing this as little as possible. For example, a user of a company- supplied iPhone who implements iCloud can make a backup of all corporate and personal data. If the employee leaves the company and buys a personal iPhone or receives one from his or her next employer, accessing their personal iCloud account will download all of the previous employer’s content onto the new device. • Moreover, decision makers should seriously consider deploying technologies that will segment personal and work data on mobile devices. Our research found that a large proportion of organizations either have plans to do so or they are considering doing so, as shown in the following table. For example, we believe that organizations will increasingly deploy solutions that will allow the management of multiple platforms via a single pane of glass, offering full MDM capabilities. At the client level, we also believe there will be increasing use of solutions that will enable seamless management of personal and work personas on both company-supplied and personal devices. Solutions like BlackBerry Balance or VMware Horizon Workspace permit a single device to contain separate work and personal applications and content, permitting IT to remotely wipe company-managed content without impacting employees’ personal content.

  • 15. ©2013 Osterman Research, Inc. 14 Managing BYOD in Corporate Environments THE BENEFITS OF THE CLOUD Finally, while many decision makers may resist the use of cloud-based applications, fearing that corporate data security or information governance requirements may be compromised, we recommend that decision makers fully embrace the cloud. Reasons for doing so include the ability to improve employee productivity, enable more efficient collaboration and reduce costs, among other benefits. While resistance to the cloud is understandable, particularly in industries that tend to be more staid or that have a significant number of regulatory obligations to satisfy, cloud-based tools can provide enormous benefits. Key reasons to embrace the cloud include: • Leading enterprise cloud vendors have invested significantly in making their data centers, staff, product development and release cycles secure via SSAE Type II third-party audits. • The ability to shift from a capital expense/depreciation (CAPEX) economic model to an operating expense (OPEX) model that permits organizations to pay only for the services they need. • The ability to avoid the expense related to “shelfware” – IT investments that are not fully used or that take a long time to become used for mission-critical applications. • The ability to reduce storage, file server, VPN, data replication and email storage costs by shifting functionality away from in-house infrastructure. • The ability (with the right providers) to implement robust and improved business continuity capabilities for critical corporate systems. • Finally, the right cloud providers can improve an organization’s security, compliance and corporate governance posture. SUMMARY The BYODA trend is enormously beneficial for organizations on a number of levels: • Organizations can leverage mobile applications, including ones that enable employees to get work done anytime, anywhere, as well as collaboration around content that applies to a group project or piece of content that employees need to work on. Developers are increasingly building applications specific to a business' needs to enable their workers to get more work done while remote. • BYODA fits in nicely with the increasing trend toward multi-platform environments, including the trend toward having applications available on all platforms – desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. • Innovation will continue to take place with mobile devices and cloud-based mobile applications. Those who don't put mobile at the core of their workforce mobile strategy will miss out. The BYODA trend is here to stay, and so decision makers need to understand the new reality of employees accessing corporate data and other resources with their own devices and via cloud-based applications and mobile apps that they have deployed themselves. Consequently, decision makers must do three things: • Develop policies that will address the risks associated with unfettered use of BYODA. The BYODA trend is here to stay, and so decision makers need to understand the new reality of employees accessing corporate data and other resources with their own devices and via cloud- based applications.

With the right BYODA program in place, IT will see the huge opportunity it brings as well as being able to become more secure by being in control of all corporate content; and how it is accessed, managed and shared.

Since then, BlackBerry products and services have continued to change the way millions of people around the world stay connected.

Research In Motion now operates globally under the iconic name BlackBerry. To further signal this exciting re-branding of the Company, effective February 4, 2013, our stock ticker on the NASDAQ exchange will become BBRY and on the TSX exchange, BB.
