BYOD policies: Are Latin Americans’ Startups really ready for it?

BYOD policies: Are Latin Americans’ Startups really ready for it?

The implementation of “bring your own devices” has certainly been popular among the startups in Latin America. Various other regions like Colombia, Chile, Mexico, and Brazil have seen a major growth in BYOD policies. These policies are made to reduce a company’s investment and cut costs. So far it has been successful in various other regions. It is wise to assume that it will make certain changes. Recently through a research, it is predicted that the BYOD market will expand in the coming years as it is seeing many startups and even big companies implementing this technique. Reports also show that it will be a $15.5 billion worth by 2019.

The working hours vary from 9 to 5, so investing in devices that will not be used for more than 15 hours is a complete waste. Hence, optimizing employee’s devices is the best way to solve all major problems and reduce expenses. The majority of Latin America’s startups completely focus on technology. This means that this decision is the best in terms of productivity. So by doing this, it is evident hackers will find a way to breach personal devices. Although, it is tough for now, there are chances that hackers may find a way to get into these systems.

The tech market is growing to the next level. Are the employees really ready for this transition and are the devices they carry compatible with the latest tech? Let us see if the Latin America’s startups are truly ready for these policies.
