Does Your Company Let You 'Bring Your Own Device'?

 

You may have noticed a few buzzwords swirling around the last few months and one in particular that doesn't seem to want to fade away. "BYOD" or bring your own device, has most likely infiltrated your social media streams, tech blogs and possibly your real life conversations. What is it? We've covered it before but for a brief recap, it's basically when you bring your personal laptop, tablet or smartphone into work and use it for your job. There are a ton of benefits for both the user and the company. The company saves money and you  get to work on a device you already know and love. 

 

However, there are a few roadblocks to completely pain-free BYOD policy adoption. Security and application compatibility are two of the biggest headaches faced by IT departments. Personal devices access and download private company data and some enterprise software is Windows only or significantly different on the Mac. That's where Parallels Desktop for Mac Enterprise Edition comes in. The Enterprise Edition of Parallels Desktop not only lets you run the Windows applications you need on the Mac you love, it also provides IT departments the tools they need to manage and deploy large numbers of Apple devices.
