I recently presented at Forrester’s Security Forum (Twitter: #FSF09) and Forrester’s Infrastructure & Operations and Security & Risk Leadership Board meetings on how companies can make BYOPC a reality. Overall, the feedback was great! Yes, there were absolutely skeptics in the room (especially the security pros), but slowly I was able to alleviate most of their concerns. It really goes back to what I have said in the past, BYOPC is really just an advanced form of remote access. And Google, Citrix, and Cisco agreed — each had their CSO/CIO up on stage with me talking about their own respective BYOPC and consumerization programs.
Overall, here were my talking points about the necessary components to make BYOPC work:
Using these five components will make BYOPC possible – and most attendees, after some initial hesitation, agreed. The best quote from an attendee from a financial services company was this: “If BYOPC is a competitive advantage today [because it has been known to help with recruiting and employee satisfaction], it will be a requirement tomorrow.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
