Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) was projected to be instrumental in transforming the workforce, exceeding $350 billion by 2022, up from just $94B in 2014. The unpredictable and unprecedented worldwide pandemic has forced businesses to find ways to quickly adapt to this “new normal” while keeping their employees safe by implementing new technologies that offer secure work-from-home solutions. To create the same level of communication experience at home as when workers were in a physical location, most companies invested heavily in robust conference and video collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, Zoom, and RingCentral.

Companies must now navigate compliance and regulatory challenges when using collaboration tools or face the fallout of embarrassing human errors or becoming a potential target for cybercriminals.
