More businesses are allowing their staff to use their personal devices such as mobile phones, iPads and other tablet devices to access company data and email systems. This is known in the industry as ‘Bring your own device’ or BYOD for short.
Allowing such technology has many advantages, such as introducing new efficiencies, increasing productivity and accessibility to staff whilst away from the office, plus numerous others which all add to increased profitability for the organisation.
The challenge is minimising risk to company data and standardising use of your business processes. What happens if a mobile device is lost? What if the device does not have a secure password? How can the business keep control of its data? Can the device be securely wiped if needed? Can the device be tracked and asset managed? All questions that businesses are now looking to address and mobile device management has the answer.
Smart Mobile Device Management (Smart MDM) does just that. It gives businesses the facility to configure, manage, control, report on, secure and track mobile devices.
However it is not just about security. Smart MDM allows process and polices to be configured seamlessly to managed devices, enhancing productivity and aiding your staff in remote working and access to data.

With the popularity of BYOD (Bring your own device) programmes increasing within the business environment, so have the risks associated with using the devices. Companies need to consider a reasonable solution to tackle the security risk of using such devices, whilst still enabling employees the freedom to work on what they need to in environments outside the office.
