Etelesolv Delivers Practical Advice on Best BYOD Policies and Alternate Models of Enterprise Device Management


  • BYOD is a massively-increasing trend for which IT managers are unprepared
  • “A Practical Guide to BYOD” provides comprehensive, practical advice on how to create best BYOD policies
  • The merits of alternate models to BYOD are also addressed

(MONTREAL, QC – August 28, 2014) – Etelesolv (now Cimpl), Canada's leader in IT and Telecom Expense Management, is proud to showcase its latest contribution to the business community: “A Practical Guide to BYOD”, a comprehensive and accessible guide that outlines how to set good Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies along with detailed descriptions of alternatives to the BYOD model. “A Practical Guide to BYOD” is available now for download on the company Website.

The comapny's Vice President of Sales and Marketing had this to say: “Study after study in the workplace has shown BYOD to be a huge trend that is still growing. It is still in an early adopter stage and  IT managers can find themselves unprepared to craft and implement practical BYOD policies. In many cases, BYOD’s massive hidden costs or its enormous capacity for enabling security breaches is undocumented. As a service to other businesses, we have created, and are giving away absolutely free of charge, a comprehensive guide that sheds light on all of these issues.” 

In addition to being unprepared for BYOD, most IT managers also have no clear understanding of the possible alternatives to BYOD as a device provisioning model. Overall, this lack of knowledge is common to companies of all sizes and across most industries. Without a clear BYOD policy, companies may even find themselves subject to litigation – a situation that actually arose in recent weeks.

In “A Practical Guide to BYOD”, the company covers the following topics and furnishes answers to the following important questions:

  • Security issues surrounding BYOD
  • The hidden and very substantial costs of BYOD
  • Practical advice on how to set BYOD policies, including descriptions of critically important elements
  • Benefits and drawbacks of alternative models to BYOD.
o   What is Choose Your Own Device (CYOD)?
o   What is Corporate-Liable, Employee-Owned (CLEO)?
o   What is Employee-owned, employee-liable (EOEL)?
o   What is Shared Responsibility?
o   What is Employee-owned, carrier-contract (EOCC)?
o   What is Corporate-owned, personally-enabled (COPE)?

Because of the continually-growing popularity of BYOD, unprepared organizations will find both their security and their bottom line subjected to ever-expanding risk as a result of unsecured employee-owned devices accessing sensitive corporate data. Reading “A Practical Guide to BYOD” represents a first step in addressing these important issues.
