Infographic: What does the BYOD trend actually mean for businesses?

February 20, 2014 No Comments

Infographic created by Egnyte

Of late, there has been a growing trend in offices all over the world. Enabled by a combination of Wi-Fi and cloud computing, more and more office workers are bringing their own devices into work. Starting with laptops, this trend soon saw tablets and, to a lesser extent, smartphones become part of what is known as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

As shown in the following infographic, tablets in particular have become integral to the growth of BYOD, but what are the implications for business? For workers, they can do their jobs from home and take their tablets to the office, sharing files from device to device via the cloud, providing plenty of convenience, especially for major, time-sensitive projects.

Safety concerns

Business owners will feel that when workers bring their own devices into the office, they could put their most important files at risk of being stolen or compromised by malware. At the same time, they may feel that any files shared through the cloud could be accessed by someone who wouldn’t gain their permission to see them, possibly causing major panic amongst management.

For the time being, it seems that the concept of BYOD will continue to see its popularity surge. The convenience that it brings to employees hoping to get their work done on time alone may be worth it. The growth in popularity of tablets has helped, as they’re far easier to bring into the office and use as computers.
