Insight Launches Choose Your Own Device Solution
Introducing CYOD-the Managed Alternative to BYOD
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,
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.
