    The explosion in the variety of mobile devices has fueled BYOD while creating major challenges for IT staff.  How do they secure sensitive data?  How do they manage all those different types of devices?  How do they connect employees and their devices with corporate applications?
    One strategy for meeting these challenges is to separate data and applications from the end user devices.  This can also be achieved with a combination of virtualization and HTML5 technologies.  For example, data and applications can be securely hosted on VDI virtual desktops or on Microsoft RDS (Terminal Server) while mobile employees access those applications and desktops using HTML5-compatible browsers.
    That’s the idea behind solutions like Ericom AccessNow, an HTML5 RDP client that enables access to Windows applications and desktops from a browser.  Basing access on the browser allows employees to get to their applications and data from Android tablets and phones, iPads, iPhones and other devices.
    This white paper – “BYOD is Here to Stay, But Organizations Must Adapt” – discusses additional strategies for addressing some of the challenges of BYOD:
