The downside to a BYOD environment is more risk, since it opens new avenues for access to enterprise resources. To get ahead of threats, your IT needs to come up with a pragmatic strategy to secure data and assets from malware and theft - without impeding the flexibility BYOD can deliver for your enterprise.
