Nearly half of IT managers and executives polled in six leading economies said that they would never let employees bring their own devices to work, according to Cisco.

Tablet computing in the enterprise world is about to hit a major turning point in 2012, but there are definitely some serious roadblocks ahead, according to a new report from Cisco.

The global survey found that IT departments are now getting one tablet request for every three smartphone requests. That could possibly be attributed the statistic that 48 per cent of companies surveyed said that they would never authorise employees to bring their own devices to work. That's not good for proponents of the BYOD trend if nearly half of IT decision makers are still against the idea.
