Mobile Device Management Builds Mobile Reliability

Mobile Device Management Builds Mobile Reliability

Even if you try to ban them in the office, it’s inevitable that your employees will bring their mobile devices to the workplace anyway. Instead of worrying about them wasting away the day, why not try to turn the devices to your advantage? There are more tools out there than ever before to not only add smartphones to your workflows, but to make them profitable and valuable for your organization.

One of the best ways to accomplish this is with our mobile device management (MDM) service. Depending on your business’ specific needs, you’ll need a different solution compared to others. To help you make the best decision, we’ve put together a list of features that can help you compare your needs with the various services available through mobile device management.

What’s a Mobile Device Management Solution?
A mobile device management solution is typically meant to help IT administrators and business management enforce policies on mobile devices, turning a time-wasting smartphone into more of a productivity tool than a meme machine. These policies are implemented with the intention of protecting the business’ network and data from being targeted by threats. Through a mobile device management software, IT administrators can control and reinforce policies or add applications to devices that access company assets.

Why Use Mobile Device Management?
There are three big reasons why your organization might want to implement MDM software, and all of them are due to the relatively recent influx of mobile devices to the workplace. Since the early 2000s, security has grown more important for this very reason. Businesses simply want to control access to data, and you should too.

  • Access: A major focus of mobile device management is allowing employees access to important work material without compromising your business’ security. For example, MDM is only as useful as your applications are on a mobile phone, so you’ll want to take careful measure of how your employees can be successful with a MDM solution on their devices. The incredible access provided can be quite considerable for most organizations that find value in flexibility.
  • Improved Visibility: Another big part of using a MDM is that you can compose and enforce compliance guidelines that your staff needs to abide by. This can include which devices have access to certain data. Your organization can then use this information to remain cognizant of the biggest threats to its data security.
  • General Security Measures: Overall, the most important thing to remember about MDM solutions is that they are designed to protect your business’ data and infrastructure from threats. To this end, there are several solutions baked into the service that keep threats out of your devices, including whitelisting and blacklisting apps and remote wiping for worst-case scenarios.
