More and more organizations around the globe permit employees to bring their own mobile devices to work so they can access company data from any location, at any time with any device. The bring your own device (BYOD) phenomenon started gaining traction around 2007 when executives and board members brought the first personal smart phones and tablets into the corporate workspace. Since then, the BYOD trend has skyrocketed as employees began to expect the same kind of flexibility, and employers saw increased productivity by allowing employees to use mobile devices both at work and home.
