Spoiler Alert … Possibly. But there is some light.     Those of you without their heads under rocks will know that there is a movement afoot in the modern enterprise called BYOD. It has been around for some 7 years. It started a while back as the Enterprise found increasing numbers of people wandering into their offices with their Blackberry, iPhone, Droid, iPad, <name-your-device-of-choice> accessories, and demanding network access. Wikipedia has this to say. [ my emphasis ].
