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

Easy ways to connect BYOD

The author says the alternative of leaving BYOD devices outside the network via a virtual desktop solution is "non-trivial and not cheap."

There are alternatives to Citrix (both enterprise-class and aimed at SMBs) that are a lot simpler and more affordable to install and configure. For example, Ericom Connect offers an HTML5-based client that runs on any device with a standard modern browser, with no client-side installation or configuration whatsoever - not even plug-ins such as Flash or Java. The arrangement allows employees to be productive without downloading any corporate data onto their personal device ensuring that confidential corporate data files remain secure within the corporate data centre, even if an employee's device is lost or stolen.
