Submission + - Managing consumer devices in the workplace

darien writes: "Last night Symantec hosted a round-table discussion on the topic of consumer devices in the workplace. John Brigden, Symantec's senior VP for EMEA, pointed out that, regardless of the policies businesses may lay down, individuals will always try to use their favourite gadgets and websites at work. Reminds me of when I worked in IT support: no matter how many times we told users they weren't allowed to install ICQ, or to connect their personal laptops to the corporate network, they insisted on doing it. Frequently they even asked us to help them do it. What are your experiences of users bringing their own devices and services into the office? Where do you think we're headed?"
