How Governments Can Turn BYOD from a Challenge into an Opportunity

The concept of mobility in the government today is a source of many things: excitement, productivity, innovation, frustration. The vision for tomorrow, however, is a much broader, wide-open horizon of potential uses and applications.

Take BYOD. Over the years, we have experienced a dramatic rise in mobile device use for both personal and professional communications, and as a result, government agencies are looking at new ways to support Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs.

Most government organizations support their BYOD deployments with an enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform. Agencies need EMM platforms that can support a wide variety of operating systems and device types, as well as solutions that secure email, browsing, voice and text messaging with encryption and archiving.

At the same time, solutions exist for government agencies to assure employees that only corporate data is being preserved, not personal, for their own protection and privacy. At CellTrust, we’ve pioneered the dual persona technology approach to deliver just that. CellTrust also recognizes the importance of data security in industries that require the highest levels of validated encryption and delivering a solution that is designed to meet the most rigorous security standards in the world.

If you’d like to learn more about the importance of selecting an EMM platform that is flexible enough to extend security and compliance to BYOD, read my in-depth article that was published in the October issue of United States Cybersecurity Magazine.
