When it comes to equipping their workforce with mobile solutions, many companies are adopting "Bring your own device" policies (BYOD), allowing their employees to bring personally owned mobile devices to work and access company resources, applications, and data. At the same time, BYOD has security challenges: the same smartphone that was used to visit a malicious website the previous evening will access the company intranet this afternoon. Concerns such as these are forcing other companies to assert tight control over their mobile devices and apply "Here's Your Own Device" (HYOD) policies, (i.e., IT departments purchase and maintain the devices and provide them to employees for use.) Here, the perspective taken by enterprises is that HYOD is more work to implement but allows for tighter security and control.
