Mobile Device Management (MDM) for a Secure Mobile Enterprise.
The growth of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) in the enterprise, as a result of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and enterprise mobility initiatives, has resulted in significant productivity gains as well as mobile device and corporate data security concerns. While the emergence of Mobile Device Management software has created some solutions to help solve some of the security issues, the number of MDM
solutions has also created complexity and confusion. Mobile Device Management software offers a wide range of security options and features that can help enable your mobile connected workforce while securing your corporate data. Mobile Device Management features and options include:
- Client Based and Server Based Mobile Device Management
- Multiple Personas
- Containerized Security
- Device Controls
- Application Controls
- Over-The-Air Firmware Updates (OTA)
- Location-Based Controls
- Enterprise App Stores
OVATION Wireless Mobile Device Management Solutions Eliminate the Complexity of Securing Your Mobile Enterprise
OVATION Wireless Mobile Device Management solutions start with a comprehensive evaluation of your mobile enterprise, security requirements, end-user needs and overall mobility objectives.
In some cases a single mobile device management software offering will not fulfill all of the
security requirements in a single enterprise. For example, if you have mobile connected employees that require access to highly secure data then your Mobile Device Management solution will need to include powerful security controls to ensure enterprise data integrity and regulatory compliance. However, for employees that are not accessing highly sensitive data you will want a mobile device management client and server option that enables end-users to utilize their preferred native device interfaces. It is important to strike the right balance of enabling employees while ensuring that corporate data will not be compromised.
Also, when developing the levels of security for each mobile employee profile, it is important to evaluate their access to confidential information. Email alone, more often than not, houses a high volume of confidential corporate data and therefore warrants security controls on mobile devices that mitigate the risks of lost or stolen devices.
