Forget Bring Your Own Device – Try Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:16 am


Rather than struggle with BYOD, some companies are turning the whole concept of BYOD on its head in favor of Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) policies. The idea behind BYOD is to let end users choose the devices, programs and services that best meet their personal and business needs, with access, support and security supplied by the company IT department – often with subsidies for device purchases. But BYOD places new burdens on IT as it tries to deal with an infinite variety of platforms and profiles. COPE takes the opposite approach – instead of making corporate functions work on personal devices, it sets up a framework to support and allow personal uses of company devices.
