However, policies of some companies don’t have clarity. 48% of IT leaders and 35% of IT professionals report that their organization’s BYOD policy is crystal clear. Failure to clarify the company’s policy could lead to false and dangerous assumptions by the employee’s.
The main value proposition of BYOD policy is employee satisfaction as it offers great freedom of choice. Nearly 50% of both IT leaders and IT professionals believe that their organizations are either achieving middle-of-the-road effectiveness or are completely ineffective.

The sensitive data is at risk because of end users, in this case employees accessing information from the personal devices.
More than half of the IT leaders and 66% of the IT professionals report that their employers either do not communicate or have no official policy guidelines in place, in some cases employees are not just allowed to use their own devices at work place.
