BYOD might be a hipster honeypot but it's rarely worth the extra hassle

Re: No hassle here.

The original poster is talking about adding a service which is used to manage BYOD. MobileIron sticks a couple of servers between users and the core network.

Or in other words, an outsourced BYOD policy and security maintenance program.

Agree on the original sentiment - it isn't really BYOD if you're forcing users out of "using whatever they want".

The original poster also talked only about mobile - which is odd. Apparently an app only company somehow.

Also agree that patch control, other security, IT support and so forth makes BYOD a nightmare.
