New mobile technologies are emerging continuously in today’s scenario. Like smartphones are used extensively for data communication as well as a processing. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is one such technology that has evolved in the business environment. In this environment employees of any organization can bring and use their portable devices like mobile phones, laptops, notebooks to their offices/work places. This helps in sharing, optimizing the utilization of resources. This is a futuristic approach where heterogeneous devices can join hand to work together. Users working in this environment can bring devices of different make and model, which makes it a truly heterogeneous environment. When resources of any organization need to be share among the user of unclassified devices leads to various challenging issues to organizational assets. In this survey, our focus is on security issues and various benefits associated with BYOD. As this field in very new and emerging area of research which may open lots of scope for new researchers to explore this domain for its high acceptability.
