Tablets and PCs Come to Work
BYOD had been mostly a smartphone play, but in the second half of 2013, Forrester Research analyst David Johnson saw more PCs and tablets falling under the BYOD policy. Johnson says he expects the trend to continue this year. A move toward more powerful, more critical BYOD tools brings a plethora of technical challenges. With BYOD PCs, Johnson says, "There's a lot more you have to secure in order for it to be considered acceptable, particularly in a regulated environment."
