Global enterprise mobility trends in 2017
Now that we all have our feet firmly on the ground for 2017, we can begin to traverse the new mobility landscape. There are a few trends we’ll see this year that haven’t been on anyone’s radar before. While some trends have a niche-level impact, things like security, bring your own device (BYOD), and mobile data networks affect enterprises worldwide. Here’s how this year’s trends will impact the global enterprise mobility landscape.

RESEARCH: BYOD (bring-your-own-device) policy
This policy outlines requirements for BYOD usage and establishes the steps that both users and the IT department should follow to initialize, support, and remove devices from company access. These requirements must be followed as documented to protect company systems and data from unauthorized access or misuse.

Risky business: Personal file-sharing apps use at work
The unauthorised use of personal file-sharing apps at work is a growing problem that can no longer be swept under the rug and ignored. On one hand these services, such as Dropbox and Google G Suite, can help employees to collaborate and share information. On the other, they often lack adequate security controls. That means countless numbers of employees around the world who share company information through such platforms are inadvertently putting their organisations at risk of information security breaches and data loss.

10 ways to reduce insider BYOD threats
BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) movement brought massive cost savings, user flexibility and a better range of device choices. But it also made life tougher for IT pros in the way of greater support headaches and security concerns. Security requirements don’t change, regardless of who owns the device or what operating system it runs. Employees benefit by using their own devices for work, but there can be security risks as well. Here are some ways to control or reduce these threats.

What to consider in developing BYOD policy
In today’s work environment, employees are increasingly expected to be constantly available and communicating. Regardless of whether the company permits it, employees will use their personal devices for work. Instead of ignoring the inevitable, companies should develop and implement a BYOD policy that protects the company and balances productivity with security.

A Study of Enterprise Mobile App User Experience
Many top companies today are providing employees with mobile apps to improve how they do their jobs. But many times, those company-issued apps fail when it comes to delivering the type of great user experience we’re used to with the apps we download from the public app stores. In this quantitative study, ArcTouch surveys office workers to understand how apps in the workplace perform when it comes to user experience, and where they fall short.
