Frost & Sullivan Webinar Recap: Improve security and compliance in BYOD programs

All of us here at Movius were quite excited when industry analyst firm Frost and Sullivan awarded Sprint MultiLine with it’s​ 2019 Product Leadership Award in the Enterprise BYOD Solutions space.


In our recent webinar, Jeanine Sterling, Industry Director at Frost & Sullivan was joined by Sasha Gorman, VP Product at Sprint, and Tara Panu, our VP Marketing & Customer Experience to discuss the current state and future of BYOD, especially within highly regulated markets while showcasing live customer examples.


Jeanine, a Mobile and Wireless Industry Director at Frost and Sullivan, discussed the high levels of support for BYOD programs within all industries, and concluded that the main drivers of BYOD desire would only increase in the coming years. Despite all the obvious benefits, however, Sterling noted that it’s only worthwhile if properly maintained, stating that “while BYOD has its clear benefits – happier workers, happier customers, less up-front company expense – these benefits are only possible if your BYOD program is actively managed.”


Key stats shared from the webinar:

  1. 1. Almost 70% of companies of all sizes support a BYOD policy, and the key drivers of that trend is only expected to rise.
  1. 2. 89% of consumers want to text with companies, but financial services and healthcare industries are often forced to implement no-texting to policies to maintain compliance.
  1. 3. On average, text messages are read within five seconds of receipt, whereas only 20% of phone calls are answered.
  1. 4. Text messaging is the number one preferred method of communication for American adults.
