Moving to a "bring your own device" solution definitely has its advantages: the ability to save money, enable workers to become more efficient and productive, and put in place a broader plan for unified endpoint security, but companies should also have a backup plan in case something goes wrong, InformationWeek said.

"A BYOD contingency plan is not so different from one that is used in the enterprise," the news source said. "For example, IT departments maintain redundant ISPs, regularly scheduled fail-overs to a co-location, and randomly restore backups to make sure the data is recorded properly. Knowing that backup plan works brings peace of mind."

An infographic from Cisco showed 75 percent of companies were not managing their mobile expenses well enough, and this is certainly something companies should strive to change with mobile device management and other tools. With 15 billion people going to be on connected network devices by 2015, this needs to be in order as soon as possible.

Unified endpoint security should allow companies to have strong authorization, malware and antivirus protection, TechTarget said. This can be very important for security going forward, with many devices coming into business daily.
