How to implement both BYOD and prudent data retention practices?

How do you make sure that information that is critical to the company is backed up when you allow BYOD?

I think ehtan has the right answer for this.

I think you need to have both automatic backup in place and remote wipe. I would also forbid use of personal backup services like Dropbox for company data.


More backup software is also starting to address mobile BYOD concerns and not just employees' personal laptops. Commvault Simpana, Asigra, and Druva InSync all support mobile backup.
