May 16, 2012 - PRLog -- Rockville, MD – BizTechReports ( an independent research and reporting agency that analyzes user trends in business technology, is pleased to announce the availability of the latest 1on1 with BizTechReports Executive Video Interview with Chris Roberts, VP Worldwide Public Sector at Good Technology on the topic of:

Managing BYOD Securely in the Public Sector
Video Interview is available at:

The concept of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) to work has really thrown a curve ball to the IT community across all sectors of the economy.  Even a few short years ago, it is doubtful that anyone would have thought it plausible for IT organizations to allow non-issued gear to connect to sensitive information resources.  It would have been even less plausible in the public sector, where we have typically observed a very conservative IT culture.  And yet, it looks like the BYOD phenomenon is catching on even in the Federal government.  In this edition we explore some of the key issues public sector IT decision-makers face as they evaluate how to wrap their hands around this new disruptive trend.
