The face of technology has changed significantly within the last decade. The consumerization of IT, best exemplified by the rise of the smartphone, has altered the relationship that technology has with the professional world.
IT personnel used to be considered the gatekeepers of the systems and software that keep businesses running. Now, rather than being assigned a device or waiting for IT staffers to provide assistance, employees are taking the wheel. Because of this, IT departments are now tasked with creating secure environments that enable tech-savvy professionals to navigate their own way.
