Osterman Research conducted a survey of 760 individuals with regard to the BYOD issues they face in their organizations.  Personally owned Apple iPhone and iPads, as well as Android smartphones and tablets, are more common than their company-supplied counterparts.

The research also found widespread use of third party, cloud-based storage and file synchronization offerings that are sometimes used with IT’s blessing, but more often not.  Dropbox, for example, is used in 14% of 1,000+ employee organizations with IT’s blessing – and in 44% of them without approval.

Organizations should implement policies and technologies that will channel the BYOD trend into appropriate management of corporate data and assets instead of banning the use of personal devices and applications outright.
