BYOD Or COPE? Still No ‘Silver Bullet’ For Enterprise Mobility

Now that business can be conducted from almost anywhere in the world, enterprise mobility is on the rise, and IT decision makers are shifting more and more to the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach. On the other hand, Corporately Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) enterprises are still globally prevalent. 

As previously reported by Enterprise Mobility Exchange, security is the biggest concern in a BYOD scenario. In the report titled, “Industry Insight 2017: The State of Enterprise Mobility,” only 17 percent of IT executives have adopted a BYOD platform in their enterprise. Additionally, some organizations have used BYOD, then reverted back to COPE, despite its much higher cost.
