Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) At US Insurers
Published: February 2013
According to our recent survey of 86 insurer CIOs, support for BYOD for tablets and smartphones is widespread and expanding among both large and midsize insurers, while support for BYOD laptops lags behind.
This report looks at current and planned BYOD usage by different device types, as well as differences in policies and practices by US insurers. It also includes a brief summary of sample mobile device management platforms like Good Technology, MobileIron, and AirWatch.
Supporting BYOD is rapidly becoming a standard cost of doing business for insurers. While it does involve managing security challenges, insurers need to plan for a short-term future in which BYOD plays a bigger role.
