The White House Gets BYOD

Posted by Zaid Rasid

Washington DC White HouseIn a recent blog post the VAR Guy talks about how the White House is embracing the BYOD trend and has put some policies in place to enable and to protect its agencies.

The White House created a toolkit that helps federal agencies master BYOD, mobile device management, and mobile applications management.

Here is an excerpt from the document and you'll also find an example of a Policy Template for BYOD.

Implementing a BYOD program is not mandatory. This document is intended to serve as a toolkit for agencies contemplating implementation of BYOD programs. The toolkit is not meant to be comprehensive, but rather provides key areas for consideration and examples of existing policies and best practices. In addition to providing an overview of considerations for implementing BYOD, the BYOD Working Group members developed a small collection of case studies to highlight the successful efforts of BYOD pilots or programs at several government agencies. The Working Group also assembled examples of existing policies to help inform IT leaders who are planning to develop BYOD programs for their organizations.

More and more users are bringing their own devices into the office, and corporations need to pay attention to supporting them. This includes managing these devices from a security, storage and backup view point.

The White House is on board. Are you?
