Earth Bound; Cloud Enabled
The Bring Your Own X (Device, App, Cloud) trend is shaking up businesses. Who in business doesn't check work email on their personal smartphone? Who doesn't have business and personal content mixed together in a free cloud storage service like DropBox? Allowing employees to access corporate assets on any device and at any time means they are likely contributing to your business more than their 9-5 workday, which is hugely beneficial to businesses. If your IT department is trying to significantly restrict access, your company is losing out on employee productivity. But it does decrease the control that your IT department has over critical company digital assets. What's the best way to embrace the trend but provide the right control? This white paper from Rackspace offers guidelines to help you answer those questions.
