Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) is a business model in which an organization provides its employees with mobile computing devices and allows the employees to use them as if they were personally-owned notebook computers, tablets, or smartphones.
A compromise around pure BYOD, COPE devices allow the user to control much of the data on the device, but the enterprise controls the security model. COPE allows an organization to source and deliver computing devices and services to employees and is how most organizations provide handheld or portable devices/gadgets to their employees. These devices can include but are not limited to laptops/notebooks, smartphones, tablets PCs and/or software services.
