Bugger me, I never expected that
Ah the joys of 'ooh new shiny' ideas from on high.
You have to wonder how many times this happens in a company before they get ot the clue stick to beat senior management with. Has anyone ever allowed BYOD and made a saving (a real one obviously and not the bean-counter version where the cost of kit is now on someone elses budget)?
Said it before and will say it again and again, BYOD requires compete overhaul of security BEFORE you allow it in and even then you can get blindsided by some of these apps. This cannot happen for free and in some cases will cost orders more than just handing a corporate smartphone to everyone from CEO to cleaners.
