Prismetric Advocates Mobile Apps for Boosting BYOD Culture, and how to deal with Potential Risks
Mobile app development experts from the leading IT firm Prismetric talks about the importance of mobile apps to steer Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) culture in the right direction.
Prismetric has successfully completed more than 8 years of existence by delivering customized IT solutions to enterprises in the fields like mobile application development, content management system, business intelligence and more. The company has always welcomed the modern trends to help enterprises boost overall efficiency and productivity while focusing on security and investment costs.
Sharing his viewpoint, a mobile developer from the company says, "While BYOD culture allows employers to enjoy enhanced employee productivity, after-work engagement and satisfaction, the importance of enterprise apps just can't be ignored as well. Integrating these two trends together is bound to bring more benefits for the enterprises. Allowing common enterprise apps to be installed on the personal tablets and smartphones of employees definitely provides them with an edge, involves their participation round-the-clock and reduces the burden off the IT departments."
The team acknowledges that the trend is not free from its share of risks and threats, but believes that there are ways to deal with it. Commenting on it, another member of the team says, "Employees are concerned about invasion of their personal space when their devices are under the control and scrutiny of their employers. At the same time, employers are concerned about the possible loss or theft of corporate data which obviously resides along with the enterprise apps in employees' personal devices. There is need for an arrangement in which the corporate data and apps are protected without viewing, altering or deleting the personal ones."
He adds, "While encouraging employees to limit the use of free apps that are sensitive to corporate data is one solution, the best thing to do is get highly-secured enterprise apps developed for the BYOD culture. Lastly, a mobile device management approach must be at place to impose high-level control. A secure private cloud is also a great thing to invest in this direction."
BYOD is on the rise and looking at its uplift, this trend is destined to become a phenomenon in the near future. For more information log on to https://www.prismetric.com/
