Once upon a time, your work devices out spec’d your home device because of the huge costs involved. At work you would have the latest and greatest device/machine to do your work whilst your home device was much more entry level. Over the past 5-8 years there’s been a big shift in this as companies have ‘sweated out’ devices to gain a better return on investment. This has almost switched as products are becoming much cheaper to consumers and much more portable so are now out spec’d to many work devices. Because of this we are now seeing employees happy to use their own devices for work purposes. (Bring Your Own Device). Whilst this sounds great to an employer who saves money on devices, who owns the data now? If staff are happy to use their own devices for work purposes, should they allow the business to install software to manage the device?
