It basically sounds like the idea of companies allowing their employees to bring their personal devices to work in order to connect to the corporate network. Personally, it a bad idea to me. At most I would allow these devices on a "Guest" portion of the network, that doesn't touch corporate.

Everything that I've read sounds like the tech companies want a piece of the action.  Maybe start with some fundamentals and you can get further:

1) Assume that folks WILL bring in their own devices.
2) Assume that these devices are totally uncontrollable.  Beware if you assume anything else!
3) Consider providing public internet-based access to everything - with security of course.  

So, then #3 becomes the challenge.  How do we get our employees on or into the company network while maintaining security?  VPNs come to mind.  It doesn't really matter WHERE they are sitting does it?  In their office or down at the coffee shop.  So treat the office like the coffee shop.

This doesn't eliminate security concerns but it seems to me to "unwind" the complexities and leans to known technologies.

Then you still have to worry about devices and logins being compromised: stolen, etc.  How do you deal with that?  You probably already are dealing with that.

Then maybe you don't provide access to "everything" in this manner, eh?

Ok so BYOD can mean many things.....  I guess what I am seeing the most at the moment is bring your own smartphone to work.

The trouble with BYOD and smartphones is that it gives companies with a massive challenge of supporting multiple operating systems (Apple iOS, RIM Blackberry, Symbian, Android and Windows Mobile). So the first thing to look for when looking for a BYOD solution is: does it support all of the end devices/OS that I need to support?

Junipers Pulse solution provides an SSL VPN for all of the OS listed above as well as for more traditional end point devices such as windows laptops. However Juniper have been smart with their acquisition of SMobile late in 2010. The integrated Juniper Pulse client provides not only the Juniper SSL VPN but it provides end point anti-malware and some other stuff too which is very important if you are looking to mobilise your corporate email/data. On top of all of that the Juniper SSL VPN appliance can perform compliance checking to ensure that the end point security stuff is actually running.
