How to Avoid 'Bring Your Own Disaster' Scenarios: Page 2 of 2

The bring-your-own-device trend is enabling businesses to save money on hardware. But BYOD also comes with a number of pitfalls, including employee enablement and security issues. By Paul Andersen By ChannelPro

Remote desktop apps for iOS, Android, Windows, and others that are designed for connectivity and compatibility with secure access gateways allow employees to use any device, operating system, or version they desire, with no additional cost or burden to IT.

To ensure employee productivity and business ROI from the BYOD solution, remote desktop access and secure access gateway solutions enable any application on a physical desktop or in a virtual environment to be immediately “mobilized,” providing full access to enterprise applications from personal tablets and smartphones.

When deploying a secure-access gateway with remote desktop capabilities, businesses gain a cost-effective, fully secure solution capable of mobilizing any enterprise application. What’s more, they gain a solution that mitigates the most common contributing factors to BYOD disasters.
