Geofencing is the creation of virtual perimeters linked to the geographic position of a mobile device. In the BYOD context, geofencing may be used to restrict access to applications or sensitive information inside of or outside of specific locations. For example, a company may be able to restrict access to potentially risky applications on a personal device when the device is connected to the company’s network or, conversely, restrict access to company resources when the device is outside of the company’s network.
