TEMPE, Ariz., April 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq:NSIT), a leading worldwide technology provider of hardware, software and service solutions, is proud to introduce Choose Your Own Device (CYOD), the managed alternative to Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
Insight's CYOD solution enables clients to offer their employees a choice of company approved devices with the appropriate security and standardization along with the ability to easily manage the deployment of multiple device options with the right configurations.
Insight's CYOD solution includes a custom online client portal that allows the clients' employees the option of choosing their own company pre-approved device. Insight's ISO 9001:2008 Certified Integration Lab provides the added value of efficiency and faster response times by including device imaging, asset tagging and direct shipping to the clients' corporate headquarters or to the employee's home office. Insight is also able to assist with the refresh and disposal of old units.
Many are already familiar with the popular BYOD solution as well as the unique set of challenges that comes with it: security concerns, access issues, legal questions, multiple devices and data ownership. What makes CYOD so attractive is that it bridges the gap between employee choice and IT's need to manage and secure the organization's devices, data and applications.
"Mobile technology—from laptops to smartphones and beyond, has fundamentally changed how we conduct business," said Insight President and CEO Ken Lamneck. "CYOD allows clients to efficiently embrace mobility by reducing the security risk and improving compliance management as compared to its predecessor, BYOD."
Insight has also created a CYOD workshop that is designed to assist IT professionals in developing a roadmap that aligns their company's strategic initiatives to relevant solutions. The workshop covers a range of topics, including: policies and compliance, device lifecycle management and application and data security. The workshop will prepare IT professionals to successfully implement CYOD.
Insight's holistic approach to managing all notebooks, tablets and mobile devices in a client environment extends beyond the device. Insight will evaluate a client's environment, review mobility goals and recommend the right device or mix of devices best suited for the client's requirements. Insight's unique model combines an array of advanced services and expert technical resources with a far-reaching supply chain to provide the level of solution support needed for a CYOD portal launch.
