Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Bring-your-own-device (BYOD) to the office is here to stay – and whether business owners or managers like it or not, today’s employees are using personal devices to access corporate data and applications to operate more productively.

The influx of personally-owned mobile devices entering the workplace isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. In fact, Gartner predicts that, half of employers will require workers to supply their own mobile devices for work purposes by 2017, and 70% of mobile professionals will conduct their work on personal smart devices by 2018,

 

Our approach to mobile device management; one that keeps employees, managers – and your bottom line – happy.

Our Mobile Device Management Capabilities

Passcode Enforcement

Requires a passcode in order to unlock a device, and allows management to determine the length and complexity requirements for that passcode. In highly restricted environments, additional fail-safe measures can be enabled, such as remote wiping a device if an incorrect passcode is entered 10 times.

 

Jailbreaking & Device Rooting Alerts

Jailbreaking and device rooting both describe a user’s attempt to bypass restrictions that are in place on a given mobile device– trying to work around the restrictions will only introduce unnecessary risk. Jailbreak alerts help to notify management of these issues before they become even bigger problems.

 

Geofencing

This allows employers to restrict access to certain data and applications based on device location. When a device is in the office, the camera may not work, and social media apps may not be accessible. Once an employee has left the office, however, these are immediately restored. It’s also possible to enforce multiple location-based policies simultaneously (i.e. for employees who are regularly working across multiple locations).

 

Application Restrictions

Provides control over which applications can be installed and/or used on a given device. On an iPhone, for instance, things like Siri, FaceTime, and iCloud can all be disabled. Lists of blacklisted and whitelisted apps can also be created, all of which help business owners ensure that the right applications are being installed and configured appropriately.
