When selecting an approach to deploy mobile devices in your organization, you can choose from different deployment models, each of which comes with its own benefits and risks. With mobile devices, managing risk depends partly on employee cooperation (i.e. willingness to allow use restrictions, monitoring, and security access by the organization) and partly on the inherent risks and vulnerabilities in the types of devices included. To select a deployment model that best balances these elements for your organization, consider user experience, privacy, and security requirements.
