Is this the end of BYOD?

Do compliance requirements in banks, and on trading floors particularly, signal the end of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) culture? 

Here at EarlyBird, we're regularly told, anecdotally, that traders who are denied access to Twitter on their trading terminals, access it on their own devices - because Twitter's where news breaks and they need to know. We've even heard of traders setting up a Twitter stream on an iPad on their desk. But there are compliance risks associated with letting traders use their own devices.

In this article on the efinancialcareers website, Dan Davies, a former banking analyst at Cazenove, Credit Suisse and BNP Paribas explores this issue in some detail and suggests that the days of BYOD may be numbered.
