Sanjay Castelino, with Austin, Texas-based IT firm SolarWinds, joined Industry Chatter to discuss the growing phenomenon of "bring-your-own-device" at federal agencies. The BYOD shift is part of an evolution toward the consumerization of IT, Castelino said.

Castelino also discussed how agencies can transition to more robust continuous monitoring as now required by federal cybersecurity standards. Along with that, Castelino said the changing role of federal systems administrators, who have been forced to take on more and more roles due to budget cuts and smaller staffs.
