Like healthcare, banks have a lot of fear from BYOD and especially with employees using thier own devices, but I think privacy concerns are still the biggest challenge for all big BYOD employer device systems. We were looking to bring in a larger MDM system for BYOD at our hospital, but the doctors (who own the hospital) felt it was to intrusive since they all wanted to use their own devices, but didn't want IT to have total control over them. Still, they wanted the ability to send HIPAA compliant patient info (mostly text messages) to admin and other doctors. We changed our stratagy and started looking for individual apps to deal with the various security issues. Example to allow for HIPAA text messaging, we got an app (Tigertext) which is HIPAA compliant, and installed it on all the doctors devices. It auto-deletes the messages after X period of time, and IT can still wipe the device if it is lost or stolen, but the doctors didn't feel it violated thier 'privacy' which made it acceptable to them. This might be the kind of stratagy banks may want to try to keep data secure, and let thier employees use thier own devices.
