IT managers struggle to keep up with tech developments
IT bosses are struggling to support the plethora of personal mobile devices appearing in the workplace, with a study by LANDesk showing 96 per cent of managers reporting that staff are now using more than one computing device, but only 75 per cent are actually supporting multiple devices.
The research indicates that technology is developing at a such a fast pace that IT departments are falling behind in fundamentals such as safely connecting to networks, with more than half of those questioned admitting to not having a security strategy for mobile devices in place.
“The days of provisioning and maintaining a single computing platform, locking down work environments and mandating productivity systems are dead,” says LANDesk vice-president Steve Workman.
LANDesk has produced an infographic detailing more of its study of BYOD IT support.
