Android, iOS, Windows, Linux or Mac OS… the battle between these operating systems is already older than most readers here.
The usage has to a large extent its differences. And yet companies force their employees, the users, to do their bidding. Users are rarely allowed to choose with which device they can work best. It has more to do with luck whether one gets a terminal device with an operating system which one likes and knows, or not.
Suddenly giving long-time iOS users an Android smartphone usually leads to frustration and minimal use of the device, but companies want to achieve exactly the opposite. By trusting the known, probably much more and also faster would be earned.
So why don’t we give the employee the opportunity to choose which device he wants to use? If necessary, he even wants to use his private hardware. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) concept is already in use occasionally in the smartphone sector. In the field of notebooks, however, still completely unknown. But with the right technologies this would not be a problem, because they separate private and business data.
The employee can thus work with any device of his choice, from anywhere in the World.
Container applications and cloud solutions give administrators the opportunity to implement a clean separation of private and business data.
Software solutions such as SecurePIM or Soliton Secure Browser make it possible. They encapsulate business data on private end devices and thus allow controlled access to company resources without risking data loss.
