The integration of mobile devices into your network infrastructure is a new and growing challenge. By installing and configuring a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system, we can help you manage your organisation’s fleet of mobile devices, as well as those that your users bring from home.
A well configured MDM can update and maintain your entire fleet of smart phones and tablets by delivering software and settings over the air, via your wireless network or across the internet.
Device settings can be locked or regularly refreshed, and proxy, VPN or application settings can be configured and deployed so that your users can get the most from their device without having to follow complex setup procedures.
If a device is lost or stolen it can be disabled, rendering it useless to anyone else.
Almost everyone who passes through the front door of your organisation will have one or more mobile devices. By extending your MDM to include those devices, you can govern who connects to your network, and under what conditions. Users can also choose to adopt company apps, settings and configurations to make their privately owned devices more useful in the workplace.
We can help you sign up for the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) to deploy purchased apps to your devices. This enables your organisation to purchase apps in bulk and deploy them to company and privately owned devices, while retaining the ability to revoke licenses and uninstall applications.
When company data is accessed and stored on mobile devices it can pose a security risk to the business. It’s important to know and manage the company data and user accounts that are configured on devices, so that they can be removed and secured when required.
It’s also possible to restrict the use of company files and information, so they can’t be easily shared with third parties.
Mobile Device Management technologies are maturing, and standards and market leaders are beginning to emerge.. Talk to us about how we can make your mobile device fleet more manageable, and keep your company data more secure.
