"The most surprising finding was the wide discrepancy between desire to participate in BYOD and actual participation rates," Rich Campagna, vice president of products and marketing at Bitglass, told eWEEK.
"Low adoption and deployment complexity has given some a negative view of BYOD, but the survey data is clear-BYOD can be successful, but only if IT deploys solutions that meet employees' terms in addition to [the employers'] own," Campagna
Although 78 percent of employees said they understand that companies need to protect their proprietary information, they added that the employer should not have the ability to wipe personal data from the mobile device.
The survey also indicated that mobile application management (MAM) is struggling to find acceptance among users and IT staff-38 percent of IT security professionals do not personally participate in their own BYOD programs because they do not want software on their personal devices.
"MAM platforms have run into challenges with breaking applications, running afoul of app licensing agreements, and inability to control third-party app store applications," Campagna
