BT has announced a set of solutions designed to help organisations benefit from a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ policy that lets employees use their personal smartphones and tablets for work. It describes this as an integrated approach designed to help CIOs deploy smart devices on a large scale while improving the end-user experience.
BT’s new BYOD proposition - named ‘Beyond Your Device’ - combines aspects of the BT Connect portfolio of networking solutions, BT Assure security services and BT Advise professional services with new features.
Neil Sutton, Vice President of Global Portfolio at BT Global Services, said “It has become very clear that BYOD productivity gains are only reaped if network services can cope securely with the extra load. We are ideally placed to provide the intelligent network solutions to meet those needs. Our wireless solutions and our identity and access control policy platform are designed to provide a seamless user experience whilst implementing compliant and enhanced infrastructure security, all from a centralised point. Our wireless solutions allow organisations to give that connectivity to their own customers and to personalise their experience thanks to our identity and location management solutions. We now offer a great value proposition to our customers, with an integrated mix of fixed and mobile services, a strong professional services wrap and proven security features and we offer that in a cost effective way. During the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, we showed our ability to deliver very large scale projects combining all of those elements and we are now determined to put that expertise at the service of companies all over the world.”
