NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BYOD–The balance between data security and employee experience has always been challenging but the pandemic, remote work, and increasing cyber-attacks has taken the importance to a new level for government agencies. According to a new study, 44 percent of government employees use work devices for personal use and 60 percent use personal devices for work use. Government agencies not only have a BYO device issue, but passwords are not properly secured and Shadow IT is out of control.
In its inaugural year, The Endpoint Ecosystem study examines how employees perceive privacy, productivity, and personal well-being in the modern workplace. The study defines the Endpoint Ecosystem as the combination of all the devices, applications and tools plus the employee’s experience using that technology. The study presents a groundbreaking look at the tradeoffs between security and employee experience that every employer must face.
“The Endpoint Ecosystem has always been important, but it became urgent over the last two years when the pandemic forced more people to work remotely, cybersecurity attacks increased, and the Great Resignation forced employers to rethink how they support their employees,” said Denis O’Shea, founder of Mobile Mentor. “When the endpoint ecosystem works well, you have a secure, productive and happy workforce.”
The Endpoint Ecosystem study also highlights the following findings specific to the government workers:
In late 2021, Mobile Mentor commissioned CGK to field the study of 1,500 employees across four high-risk and highly regulated industries: healthcare, finance, education and government. Employees were located in the United States and Australia. Each interview consisted of 25 questions to understand how employees are using devices in a post-pandemic world. The goal of the study is to gather data to educate and inform employers how devices in their industries are being used, how to prevent security breaches, and how to best support productive employees.
