Published by Cisco IT
Reflecting a social trend, Cisco employees want to use personal devices, such as smartphones and tablets, for work. In the absence of a formal bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program, employees were finding their own ways to access their email and work files from personal devices. Thousands were using public cloud storage services, most of which lack enterprise-caliber availability and security.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Challenge
Reflecting a social trend, Cisco employees want to use personal devices, such as smartphonesand tablets, for work. In the absence of a formalBring Your Own Device (BYOD)program,employees were finding their own ways to access their email and work files from personaldevices. Thousands were using public cloud storage services, most of which lack enterprise-caliber availability and security.Giving employees the flexibility to use any device would do more than increase employeesatisfaction; it would also save money and strengthen security. For example, replacing evena small percentage of company-owned devices with employee-owned devices wouldsignificantly lower capital costs and IT management costs. And storing intellectual property inCisco IT’s data center would provide better protection than storing it on employee laptops.
Solution
Cisco IT launched an “Any Device” initiative to give employees the flexibility they expect whilealso meeting Cisco IT’s cost and security requirements. The goal is empowering employees tosecurely connect to Cisco IT voice, video, and data services from anywhere, using any device.The Any Device Initiative includes several IT programs, including analways-on VPN clientthatemployees provision themselves,desktop virtualization, and aprivate storage cloud.
Connect Using Any Registered Personal Device
Employees appreciateCisco AnyConnect® because it is always on, saving the trouble of repeatedly entering passwords throughout the day and waiting for a connection. They alsoappreciate the excellent user experience, because the client automatically selects the bestprotocol depending on whether the session includes voice, video or data.
Desktop Virtualization: Work With Virtual Desktops on Any Device
Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)refers to hosting virtual desktops on a central server. UsingtheCisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI), selected Cisco employees can enjoy afull desktop experience (including voice and video) from a choice of client devices, includingthin or zero clients, company-owned laptops or ultrabooks, and personal devices.Cisco IT started with two use cases to lower desktop total cost of ownership (TCO). One usecase is allowing 7000 employees who had two company-owned laptops to replace one withany personal device. The other use case is replacing laptops given to Cisco extranet partnerswith a lower-costCisco Virtualization Experience (VXC) endpoint.
Private Storage Cloud: Access Files from Any Device
Cisco IT does not want employees to user consumer-oriented public cloud services to backup their work because of the risk of lost intellectual property and insufficient availability anddisaster recovery measures.Cisco IT is currently conducting a proof-of-concept for the internal storage cloud (S-Cloud) asa part of the Any Device initiative. Built on theCisco Unified Computing System™ (UCS®)andenterprise storage, S-Cloud uses a commercial middleware to support access from Windows,Mac, Linux, Apple iOS, and Android operating systems.S-Cloudcan scale to back up 100,000desktops for Cisco employees and contractors.

BYOD should only be undertaken with appropriate security. Employees need complete security awareness and policy should be properly enforced. Much data gets lost on mobile devices every year and more than half of the recent respondents to a Ponemon survey said they did no data protection activity, yet they are carrying large amounts of sensitive data. BYOD should be done within organisational Ris
