Gmail app hack: Why it's unlikely to derail your BYOD plans
I'm not playing Buzzword Bingo this week, but I am going to mention BYOD (or Bring Your Own Device, if you prefer) and - as enterprises around the globe will testify - plenty of people do. The explosion in using consumer devices in the workplace should not have caught anyone by surprise. When such devices catch up with, and in many cases surpass, business kit in terms of sheer power, flexibility and cost, then BYOD becomes a no-brainer. This is a good phrase, as it also sums up what appears at first glance to be some very worrying security news that broke this time last week.
