IBM Opens Up Smartphone, Tablet Support for its Workers

Computerworld: IBM is embracing the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend. According to IBM’s CTO for mobility, Bill Bodin, the company will allow 100,000 workers to use personal smartphones and tablets for work by the end of the year, and they will add support for 100,000 additional workers during 2012.

“We’ve noticed BYOD [bring your own device] and the consumerization of IT, with devices now becoming more and more proficient,” said Bodin. “At IBM, it’s not exactly the BYOD metaphor. Rather, we are taking steps to fortify the infrastructure and device management — all the way to agents on the phone itself — to guarantee that the phone has not been hacked or jail-broken, and that the phone, with integrity, can attach to our network.”
