Choose a mobile device model

Mobile devices can increase efficient remote work for your organization, but it also raises risks to your organization’s information. If a mobile device is compromised, threat actors can access your organization‘s networks, systems, and information. The four enterprise mobility models are included in the following:

  • Corporately owned for business only (COBO)
  • Corporately owned and personally enabled (COPE)
  • Choose your own device (CYOD)
  • Bring your own device (BYOD)

These mobility models differentiate in the level of ownership your organization has over the device. The level of ownership and personal use should be considered under the threat and risk assessment when deciding which mobility model is best suited for your organization (e.g. level of control over the information on the device).

For more details on the enterprise mobility models, refer to ITSAP.70.002 Security Considerations for Mobile Device Deployments.
