Companies that implement a bring your own device policy must be sure to inform employees on proper protocol, as a recent Twitter poll by Globo showed that 68 percent of employees said they use their devices for work while only 29 percent said their company actually has a policy in place. This means that many companies are lacking endpoint security and are at risk for a security breach.

"With the significant number of employees already using their personal devices for work, companies should be focused on creating a BYOD program and policies that fit the specific needs of the company," commented Aggelos Grypaios, vice president of business development and marketing for Globo, according to FierceMobileIT. "The next important step is to communicate the policy to employees and make sure that they understand their rights and the rights of the company."

Other numbers from the report showed that 14 percent of respondents don't know if their company has a BYOD policy, 91 percent don't know if their company plans to implement one and 69 percent said they wouldn't consider breaking a BYOD policy by a company even if they knew they would not get caught.
