CounterPath's Bria Softphone Combined with the Company's Cloud-Hosted Client Configuration Server Enables IT Managers to Distribute And Manage the Bria Applications Quickly and Cost Effectively Across Multiple Devices
VANCOUVER, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - BYOD means essentially bringing your own device to work: the concept serves to give people the freedom of choice when it comes to selecting the type of device that will make them most efficient whether they are at work, at home or on the go. The benefit of course is that everything from accessing email to making video conference calls, becomes streamlined, the user experience becomes more seamless, and the employee ultimately more productive.
However, with reward there comes risk; hence the BYOD challenge. With the eruption of smartphones and tablets in the enterprise, IT mangers are scrambling as to how to manage not only all the devices that are now touching their networks, but the applications that are being used over it.
