    Is this really practical? Is this what they call efficiency? It appears too much effort is being wasted on an impractical solution. Agencies flush millions away on hypothetical agendas, but they are looking for employees to use their personal devices for work? My God! Where is the oversight? They really have a financial cause to save a few thousand for devices while investing millions in researching and controlling personal devices. Unbelievable!

  • BYOD is a quick attention catcher
    for federal CIO accomplishment. I am not sure how many workers want to read their work email on their own personal device. Once you use it, managers expect you to be reachable 24/7? It is a toy.

  • Managing BYOD
    Even if an organization doesn't have a clear BYOD policy, there's probably some underground BYOD going on. Employees have always tried to find ways to "bend" corporate policy when it keeps them from doing their job effectively (as they see it). Does BYOD have its issues? Sure, but these can be managed. One of the ways to address the security issues and end-user support headaches is to use new HTML5 technologies that will enable users to connect to their applications and desktops, without requiring IT staff to install anything on user devices. For example, Ericom AccessNow is an HTML5 RDP client that enables remote users to securely connect from various devices (including iPads, iPhones, Android devices and Chromebooks) to any RDP host, including Terminal Server and VDI virtual desktops, and run their applications and desktops in a browser. This enhances security by keeping the organization’s applications and data separate from the employee’s personal device. Moreover, AccessNow does not require any software installation on the end user device – just an HTML5 browser, connection and uname/pwd. This minimizes the intervention required by IT staff. An employee that brings in their own device merely opens their HTML5-compatible browser and connects to the URL given them by the IT admin.
