CYOD, BYOD

In the CYOD world, users are given a choice between several, purposefully selected Operating Systems. Depending on the environment, iOS and Android are offered with a wide variety of third OS choices (Blackberry, Windows, or maybe WebOS). If users have a device that fits into one of these categories, they are welcome to connect it.

The reason for this is a set of technologies the industry refers to as Mobile Device Management (MDM). MDM applications allow finer control than simple mail filters, contain Remote Wipe functionality, and they even allow VPN provisioning and access policy control. MDM systems are usually context-aware and perform geo-fencing to isolate user information access.

Geo-fencing is a useful function which blocks access to sensitive information outside specified zones. While these feature sets are difficult to employ across an endless spectrum of devices, they’re easy to implement on a large but controlled group of devices.
