Mobile technology is transforming your business. Your workforce uses a variety of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to conduct business and engage customers anywhere, anytime. The HP Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solution is specifically designed to help you unleash the full potential of the mobility, without compromising the integrity of your IT infrastructure. The comprehensive solution set includes intelligent network management software, optional management modules, and high-performance WLAN access points and controllers that work in concert to enable highly secure, reliable, and scalable enterprise networks.

 

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend presents opportunities and challenges. On one hand, you can boost employee productivity, convenience and, in many cases, reduce capital expenses by allowing workers to use personal devices for business. On the other hand, you need to ensure that your IT infrastructure can accommodate the influx of mobile devices and continue to deliver predictable, high-quality user experiences, as well as secure and reliable services.

 

BYOD challenges

 

Supporting diverse users and devices is one of the most challenging request when speaking BYOD.  You need to maintain visibility and control over an ever-changing array of company issued and personal devices—desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, e-readers—running various operating systems and revision levels. And you need to manage a variety of users—employees, contractor workers, visitors—with varying privileges. While ensuring high service quality and availability, maintaining security and mitigating risk and enabling a consistent user experience.
