Achtung! Your end-users have grave misperceptions about bring your own device (BYOD). In a recent survey of 2,243 enterprise workers, there was a resounding chorus of concerns that BYOD would transform IT from helpful business partner into an Orwellian Big Brother keeping round-the-clock tabs on all device activity.

Lo and behold, the survey results were on par with expectations—the overwhelming majority concerned about moderation of on-device activity and the privacy of data contained thereon.
Fortunately, BYOD Privacy Settings can be enabled to eliminate the collection of personally identifiable information (PII), such as physical location or personal app inventory.
