Are You Prepared for the "Bring Your Own Application" (BYOA) Revolution?

  • Frost & Sullivan Stratecast on behalf of McAfee

Many companies report greater productivity and higher employee satisfaction from their Bring Your Own Device, or BYOD, policies. Are we headed for a similar discussion based around employees' choice of the applications they utilize in business? Are we facing a BYOA (Bring Your Own Application) revolution?

The revolution is already here, according to the results of a recent Stratecast survey. In many cases, IT departments and security officers are unaware of the extent of "shadow IT," and therefore unprepared to deal with it.

This paper, titled "The Hidden Truth Behind Shadow IT: Six trends impacting your security posture" is authored by Stratecast.  It looks at companies worldwide--reveals some surprising results, along with some advice to IT and business leaders to help them start addressing the risks associated with shadow IT in their own companies.
