Manditory BYOD may seem a bit radical, and the financial benefits to organizations isn’t the only compelling reason.

Now that Cloud storage and services have exploded onto the scene the traditional security and control arguments are diminished.
Don’t look for all enterprise organizations to follow suit quickly, but the possibilities are improving.
