Boonsri Dickinson at BYTE has posted "Cisco Welcomes BYOD With Open Arms," a story on Cisco's approach to BYOD following an email interview with Brett Belding, Cisco's senior manager IT mobility services. The story is part of the larger Mobility campaign and details how technology can contribute to offering employees a choice to "work their way" on over 50 different types of IT approved mobile devices. The article details a conversation with Brett on consumerization of IT in the enterprise and how Cisco handles employees who bring their own device. The article builds on other Mobility coverage in publications like CIO and CITEWorld.

Brett Belding: Hands down, security is the biggest concern regarding BYOD/mobility. We use an architectural approach to security that includes a clear policy, Cisco AnyConnect, Cisco Identity Services Engine, one of our partner's MDM solutions, and continued communications with our user base. We enforce a PIN, automatic lock, and reserve the right to perform a local and remote wipe of all data if needed, and encryption. We leverage a combination of single sign-on credentials and certificates for authentication. (see more)]]>
