A 2015 survey from CompTIA found that 53% of businesses do not allow bring-your-own-device policies, up from 34% in 2013.
Companies appear to be more wary of BYOD now, believing that the benefits rarely outweigh the risks.
As companies upgrade and improve their technology offerings, employees may have less need for BYOD.
The survey found an increasing number of companies are banning the use of personal smartphones and tablets for work. Experts say one reason behind the trend is that workers are generally getting more of the devices they want from their companies. Part of the original driver behind BYOD came from employees who wanted to replace older corporate devices with newer devices like iPhones. But as the business world has caught up to the consumer world, more companies are providing the devices workers want.
Less interest in BYOD may be good news for CIOs, as they can potentially re-gain some control over their information assets.
