In the meantime, here’s more on the findings of our last BYOD survey.
47% of all employees now use their smartphone, tablet PC or other portable device for work purposes
Our BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) campaign kicked off with a survey of 369 SME’s on the use of personal devices in the work place. The results are in and as predicted, protecting critical data is high on SME’s priorities list - 91% claimed you’d feel safer in the knowledge that if a device was lost, the business data could be erased remotely. 76% agreed, placing legal compliance above business agility in their focus.
What was less expected, and more than slightly concerning, was the evidence that only 27% of SME’s have a BYOD policy. Shocking enough. Add to this that only 23% of the group surveyed didn’t know if their workplace had a policy in place at all, and you’ve got yourself a worrying trend.
These findings not only highlight the necessity of a clear BYOD policy for SMEs, but the importance of bringing everyone in the company into that policy is equally critical. Ensure employer and employees alike are on the same page by downloading our free ‘BYOD Bible’ here and our free BYOD template. You’ll be set up on all matters BYOD, learning pretty much everything you need to know about bringing your own device.
And the iPad Winner Is…
As a thank you for your time and honesty spent completing this survey, we promised one lucky participant a brand new iPad Mini. It’s our pleasure to announce that Mr Mike Jackson of Frank Hirth Accountancy firm, London, has been selected out of hundreds to receive this prize.
