To solve this BYOD hurdle we have a number of Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms that are very useful for enterprises to develop BYOD ready apps. A few that I came aross are,
Recently released LegaSuite 7.1 which features LegaSuite Mobile, a new enterprise mobility product that enables organizations in any industry to facilitate mobile application development and integration with mission-critical enterprise applications. LegaSuite Mobile facilitates creation of mobile applications for Apple iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile smartphones and tablets, as well as develop HTML5 applications that work on any mobile browser. LegaSuite mobile solutions offer the latest industry standard encryption techniques, ensuring the security of your data from your source applications to your mobile devices. You can also install or wipe native LegaSuite mobile applications using any standard mobile device management (MDM) solution.

TIBCO Silver® Mobile 1.0 , TIBCO's new mobile application development and management software that offers enterprises a platform to rapidly develop user-focused, mobile applications that enable employees to leverage all their information, on virtually any device, no matter where they are, in real time.

These are just a few solution out of the many available in the market, but I would say that the need of the hour is that every MEAP solution is capable of creating BYOD ready enterprise apps to speed up the enterprise mobility targets.
