Over two thirds of Americans have a smartphone and almost half have a tablet. With so many devices already in hand, many companies are implementing BYO programs. However, there are many things for a company to consider before electing to go BYO.

- BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
- CYOD (Choose Your Own Device)
- CLEO (Corporate Liable Employee Owned)
- COPE (Corporate Owned Personally Enabled)
