    1/7/2015

    “Bring your own device” (BYOD) is an emerging trend in the IT industry. It provides an option for companies to allow their employees to bring their own devices like laptops and tablets to the workplace and enables the option for users to avoid the limitation of working only from the workplace — employees can choose to work from home with provided access.
