BYOC - Bring Your Own Cloud
A term similar to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in which corporate employees utilize their own personal clouds or a combination of public or private cloud services from third-party cloud providers instead of the company's own cloud services.
Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC), or Build Your Own Cloud, provides employees with the flexibility to store and access data such as documents, images, videos and other files via a wide variety of cloud options, but it can do so at the expense of corporate control, and it can present potential security risks to the enterprise when security policies and best practices aren’t implemented or followed.
Embracing the BYOC Concept
On the other hand, some companies embrace the Bring Your Own Cloud concept for its potential cost savings and increased productivity from employees that are able to more efficiently collaborate and access work information from anywhere at any time.
