Here’s how to COPE with your BYOD bogeymen
Hot off the trail of being 2014’s most mentioned issue “BYOD” continues to menace businesses. We got in touch with Jim Haviland, CSO of Vox Mobile to talk all about the issues that BYOD policies create in business, how to handle those problems, and how to choose between BYOD, CYOD, and COPE.
