On this blog and other places, I have been an advocate for BYOD in schools and I have pointed out the "Speak Up" survey in 2011 suggested almost 2/3 of parents are willing to buy a device for their children to use in school. Apparently IBM has had a BYOD program, but they have begun to regulate which services employees can use. (Several pose threats to data--interestingly this article makes no mention of malware!)
This points out the differences between building and managing systems for business users and education users.
I thought you might be interested in the following story on TechnologyReview.com:

After letting its employees use their own phones and tablets for work, the company confronted a flood of insecure apps from the open Web.
