As has been well-documented, the popularity of the iPhone and iPad helped spawn the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement that a growing number of companies have come to embrace — grudgingly or with various levels of enthusiasm.
In my own reporting and elsewhere many IT managers have commented that there’s really no cost-savings to BYOD because it typically means the company has to support new devices it hadn’t planned to, which in turn means having to implement additional security and connectivity.
