Hi folks! So most of you are aware of BYOD “Bring Your Own Device”. But do you know about COPE?
COPE stands for “Corporately Owned Personally Enabled”. It’s supposed to be the answer to BYOD for administrators that don’t want users to bring their own devices to the office. Instead you let users use their corporate devices for personal use and keep track of things using MDM software and at the end of the day the company still owns the hardware and retains their rights to it.
Does this mean all IT admins should rush out and push COPE? Not necessarily, i think admins should do an in depth in analysis and make their decisions based on their findings for their environments. No answer is right or wrong, it’s what works for you.
