Pro V. Con: BYOD Security Challenges & Concerns [65786]
ITProPortal, August 25th, 2017

"Most employees will bring at least one type of smart device - most likely a smartphone - into the office. In fact, 77 percent of Americans use smartphones, which is why business owners have begun putting Bring Your Own Device, or 'BYOD' policies in place.

BYOD simply means that your business allows employees to bring their personal devices, like laptops and mobile devices, into the workplace. These policies vary depending on your business type, the type of information you store, your employees' access to that sensitive information and your company's size and budget..."

Are Chromebooks Responsible For PC Market Growth? [62331]
The Verge, April 12th 2017

"Microsoft might have more reason to be scared of Chromebooks these days. While the software giant was spooked by Google's low-cost laptops three years ago, they've mostly only been selling well to schools. That appears to have changed over the past year. Chromebooks outsold Macs for the first time in the US last year, and now they appear to be contributing to overall PC market growth.

IDC claims the PC market is 'up slightly,' recording its first growth in five years. It's a tiny growth of just 0.6 percent, but it's a flattening of the market that Microsoft and its PC maker partners have been looking for after years of decline.

For example, will you be providing devices to all employees, some employees (e.g., managers and executives) or no employees? How will user-owned devices connect to the network and how do you ensure personal and corporate data separation? What about company-owned devices and who owns, and thus has free access to, the data stored on them? And what happens when a device with company data or the ability to connect to the company network is stolen?..."

TechZone360, March 27th 2017

"Today's world of mobile devices, tablets, and smartphones has introduced an interesting layer of complexity for IT departments in businesses everywhere.
