The emergence of new technologies and features of mobile devices makes them integral parts of every aspect of daily business activities. Also, mobile networks are now well integrated with the Internet (e.g. 3G, 4G and LTE technologies), therefore, in BYOD, the personal devices (i.e. mobile devices) can be used to increase employees’ satisfaction and reduce an organization’s device costs. Mobile devices are not well protected compared to computer and computer networks and users pay less attention to security updates and solutions. In this paper, the work focus on identifying the willingness to adopt BYOD in Companies in Bangalore by conducting a Questionnaire Survey so that their views are understood appropriately. From this survey, it is possible to identify the importance and requirement of the BYOD deployment in various business verticals in near future.
