While I agree with all the arguments above, it is also true that there are things like selective wipe possible. But as stated it comes down to how much you wanna pay for the product to do something like that. As an employee I would be perfectly comfortable with allowing control of my device to a limited sandbox like that.
Of course she wants to have to trust your employer when they say that’s all they can do with the solution they are using.
Well guess what I will just get the cheapest smartphone like Nokia 2.1 and that is my "personal" work phone, I think this is the only way to manage that kinda of crap, Im sure managment will be happy and this is what they want, for employees to PurchaseYOD, which is fine I will handing them a frekn 512mb RAM android phone, let us see what kind of app will be installed there ? hell it will crash every 10 seconds
What a freekn shame, i cant beleive I had more freedom in my previous workplace than I have in Canada, and I lived in what you guys call third word developing countries, hell we even made more progress, where I work now everything is blocked, even SSH to other servers that is not company servers are blocked, that mentality is so stupid, and basically tells you we dont trust you. YOu should worry on hiring good people and thats it. Why do you do all the refernces check, and job checks then limit your employees and constantly monitor them ?
If it wasnt for certain family conditions I would go back
It's about way more than the employee.
Nothing in a background check will protect the company against some user installing some infected fake Angry Birds game on their Android phone, which ends up being a gateway for a hacker into private company data, or a way to get any other kind of information making it easier to an attacker to phish..., or a million other things that make sense to secure access to company data that you don't understand.
Don't be so damn narrow-sighted and quick to compare countries that actually try to secure their data from all aspects, from one's that don't know what they are doing.
