MOBILE DEVICE MANAGEMENT
Take control of your organisation’s mobile devices and safeguard your IT systems with MDM solutions such as Microsoft Endpoint Manager.
WHY PROTECT MOBILE DEVICES WITH MDM?
Most organisations go to great lengths to protect their IT systems and PCs. Yet they’ll often then allow mobile phones and devices (either work-owned or staff’s personal devices) to have the same level of access to work systems (email, file shares, CRMs etc).
Mobile devices are rarely as well-protected as PCs, and some have no protection at all.
Personal devices can introduce malware threats as there’s no regulation on the apps that are used. Equally, personal email accounts are often sit alongside work accounts, meaning viruses can easily spread between the two.
Mobile devices are also more likely to be lost, and over half a million phones are stolen each year. If phones are not adequately secure, work systems can easily be compromised and accessed by thieves.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) offers organisations advanced control and monitoring of devices connected to work systems, ensuring the safety and security of your IT.
HOW MOBILE DEVICE MANAGEMENT CAN HELP
MDM solutions such as Microsoft Endpoint Manager can help in the following ways:
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR NETWORK WITH MDM
Organisations can also enforce the security that devices must have to be able to access this area, monitoring if devices have passwords or pin codes. This can work both for work-owned devices and staff’s personal devices.
For work devices, Mobile Device Management can also control which apps staff can access, ensuring only approved, relevant and secure content is downloaded onto the phone.
Should an employee lose a device (personal or work-owned) that is connected to work systems, it can be remotely wiped of all of an organisation’s data held on that device. Alternatively, with GPS activated, devices can be tracked down, saving you the cost of replacement or to support insurance claims.
Mobile Device Management can also assist with compliance with internal security policies. For secure or sensitive work environments, MDM can be used on work-issued devices to disable in-built cameras and recording functionality, along with the use of communication apps (such as WhatsApp).
