Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin scored for Atletico Madrid.Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Madrid ended in disappointment.Juventus has not won the UEFA Champions League in 22 years. For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Madrid: Cristiano Ronaldo’s Champions League mission with Juventus stalled on Wednesday as Atletico Madrid secured a deserved 2-0 victory from a thrilling first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano. Ronaldo returned to the Spanish capital, where he enjoyed unprecedented success in this tournament with Real, but it was their rivals celebrating at the final whistle as goals from Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin put Atletico within sight of the quarter-finals. “We are not through yet,” Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. “There is another match to play and we know we will have to suffer.” “Fortunately we didn’t concede a third,” said Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri. “Because 2-0 is a result that can be turned around. We’re not dead yet.” But this was a victory that Simeone’s side fully deserved. Antoine Griezmann had hit the crossbar while VAR twice intervened, correctly, in Juve’s favour, cancelling a penalty for a foul on Diego Costa and then ruling out an Alvaro Morata header just before Gimenez struck. While Juventus tried to preserve the stalemate, Atletico were bold. Simeone introduced Morata, Thomas Lemar and Angel Correa, all around the hour-mark, and his daring paid off. “I showed balls,” Simeone said. Juve are certainly not dead and buried, particularly given Costa and Thomas Partey will both be suspended for the return in Turin after each picked up yellow cards. But the failure to score an away goal, and their clear inferiority in the second half does not bode well for any hopes of a comeback.”They don’t give you chances,” said Allegri. “They make you play badly.” Defeat in the last 16 for either team would be unthinkable, for Atletico, who know the final will be played here, at their own stadium, on June 1, the perfect chance to wrestle the trophy off Real in the very city they share. Ronaldo subduedAnd for Juventus, whose wait for Europe’s premier prize has now entered its 23rd year, when expectations are higher than ever given they now boast the tournament’s most prolific ever player. Ronaldo, though, endured a disappointing night, suffocated from the outset by a typically relentless Atletico backline.Perhaps it was frustration that made him wave five fingers in the direction of the baiting Atletico crowd, presumably to signify his five Champions League triumphs.His best contribution was an early, driven free-kick from 30 yards, that had to be pushed over by Jan Oblak, and the dummy-shot before it, that exposed Costa as encroaching, for which he received his yellow card.Costa was his bristling self and almost won a penalty when referee Felix Zwayer thought he was tripped by Mattia de Sciglio. But VAR showed he had not only exaggerated the contact but also extended his run into the area.The rest of the half was tighter but Atletico had two golden opportunities early in the second. First, Griezmann volleyed Costa in behind but the Spaniard sidefooted wide with only Wojciech Szczesny to beat.Then, it was Griezmann’s turn, this time Szczesny intervening, tipping the Frenchman’s lob onto the crossbar before Giorgio Chiellini stopped Costa from reaching the rebound.Atletico were pushing and it was Morata, on for Costa, who made the difference. He powered in a brilliant header only to see it chalked off for a push but he was not deterred, and when Juve failed to clear his knock-down at a corner, Gimenez was perfectly placed. Juve were rattled and their failure to rally could cost them dear. Atletico scored again as Godin rose to head in at the near post, only to turn and find Mario Mandzukic had cleared the ball to his feet. The angle was tight but the net was open. Juve might had snatched an away goal late on but Oblak pushed over Federico Bernardeschi’s shot. They have it all to do. highlights

BYOD – Bring Your Own Device – is one of the hottest trends in IT right now. The idea is to let employees use their own preferred smartphones, tablets and/or laptops, and have the company’s technology department allow them to connect to company networks and applications, as well as make sure they’re secure and supported.But what are companies really doing about BYOD?To find out, ReadWrite ran a survey of our readers. (See Is Bring Your Own Device – BYOD – Changing Your Company?)The survey attracted 261 responses, and 176 completed every question. While this is far from a scientific or statistically valid study, the results do offer some intriguing data points as to how BYOD is being used.The results painted a remarkably clear picture of how and why companies are using BYOD:1. BYOD Is Popular Among Companies. Half (49%) of the companies responding let all employees use personal devices for work purposes. Another 33% let some employees do so. Only 18% don’t support BYOD. Of course, this was a BYOD survey, so it’s no surprise that this group was interested. But the percentages were higher than I’d expected.2. BYOD Is Less Popular Among Employees. At 44% of companies, fewer than 25% of employees participate in the BYOD program. A quarter to one half of employees BYOD in 27% of companies. More than 50% participate in a fifth of the BYOD companies, and the policy is mandatory for everyone at 10% of companies.3. BYOD Isn’t New. Surprisingly, 41% of the BYOD companies began their programs more than two years agao. Another 22% started more than a year ago. Despite the hype heating up, only 12% have moved to BYOD in the last 3 months.4. BYOD Has Widespread Benefits. Asked what the prime justification for BYOD, respondents were fairly evenly split among Employee Satisfaction (29%), Employee Productivity (29%) and Saving Money for the Company (23%). The rest didn’t know or weren’t sure.5. Paying For BYOD Is Up To The Employees. Companies pay for the BYOD devices at less than 10% of the companies responding. Workers and the company share costs at another quarter (27%) of responding organizations. Only 10% of companies buy the devices for their employees.6. Employees Who BYOD Are On Their Own For Support. Support is one of BYOD’s big issues, but most companies (56%) simply leave it up to employees. Another third (31%) supply internal IT support, while just 6% employ outsourced support for employee-owned devices.7. BYOD Is All About Smartphones. At the vast majority of BYOD companies (82%), smartphones are the most popular employee-owned devices. Tablets are often BYOD at half of the companies, while laptops get the BYOD treatment at about a third of companies (33%).8. Security Is The Biggest BYOD Concern. This one wasn’t a surprise. Almost half (49%) named security as the biggest BYOD issue – and another 5% worried about lost or stolen devices. Management and support were the top issues for 16% of respondents, while performance problems troubled 7%. Not surprisingly based on Number 5 above, cost was a concern for less than 5% of companies.9. Ensuring BYOD Security Is A Multi-Dimensional Job. Usage of various security measures were all over the map, with multiple responses showing that many comapnies were using more than one approach. Top security tactics included limiting device access to networks (38%), requiring employees to lock screens (37%) and VPNs and virtual desktops (31%). Security software (24%), enforced updates (24%) and mobile application management software (21%) were also widely used. There was less enthusiasm for making employees report issues quickly (17%), restricting downloads (11%) and building a internal app store (7%). In a victory for employee privacy, only 6% of respondents said they installed location tracking software on employee devices.What does it all add up to? BYOD isn’t some Johnny-come-lately concept being pushed on reluctant IT departments by gadget-loving workers. Instead, it seems more like a viable business strategy for letting workers have access to the right tools without having to spend a fortune.There are plenty of concerns, but overall, BYOD participants seem pretty happy about how things are going.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.
