Etelesolv Participates in Recent Research Analysis on How Court Rulings Impact BYOD


  • BYOD is a growing trend that may have serious security issues
  • Cochran v. Schwan’s Home Services court case will have some major impacts on BYOD policies
  • Businesses must be aware of the steps that they can take to protect their assets

(MONTREAL, QC – October 15, 2014) – Montreal, QC – Etelesolv (now Cimpl), Canada's leader in Telecom and IT Management, announced today the release of an analysis completed by Blue Hill Research entitled “Understanding How Cochran v. Schwan’s Home Services Impacts BYOD”. This in-depth insight on the court case is now available for download on the websiteBlue Hill Research: Court Ruling Impact on BYOD

The company's Vice President of Sales and Marketing had this to say: “Many companies lack the necessary resources to implement and monitor a BYOD policy. These vulnerabilities make it difficult for these businesses to implement a proper policy and make them easy targets for hackers who are seeking to obtain proprietary information. The point is that if BYOD policies already leave enterprises susceptible to the loss of company data, with the outcome of the court ruling, BYOD becomes even less favorable. Companies must be aware of the options available to them and choose the best course of action based on their needs and their capabilities.”

The Court of Appeal of the State of California recently ruled regarding employer reimbursement for the required use of an employee’s personal devices and the contribution towards employee cell phone bills. The outcome was met with mixed feelings as the results mean higher levels of complexity with regards to the implementation of BYOD policies.

The company’s participation in the development of the analysis aims to help companies increase security levels and protect themselves from future pitfalls.

  • What exactly was the court’s decision?
  • What does the ruling mean for BYOD?
  • Solutions to implement
