Corporate-Owned, Personally Enabled

Source: RWW, Oct 2012

COPE takes the opposite approach – instead of making corporate functions work on personal devices, it sets up a framework to support and allow personal uses of company devices. 

COPE essentially works like this: the organization buys the device and still owns it, but the employee is allowed, within reason, to install the applications they want on the device, be it smartphone or traditional computer.

For BYOD, the question for IT is “How do I secure information on a device that I don’t own?” With COPE, the question becomes, “How can I loosen my grip for my employees to use their devices for personal use?”
