Customer Challenges with Mobility
Smartphones, tablets and countless other devices are invading the business computing environment posing management and security challenges for IT professionals. Securely managing an organization’s device proliferation in addition to developing and supporting mobile applications really adds to the already overloaded list of responsibilities for the IT team. Mobility responsibilities that teams are tasked with addressing include:
- Supporting Bring-Your-Own Device (BYOD) environments securely
- Developing and managing LOB applications across mobile platforms
- Ensuring secure and reliable access to organizational assets from mobile devices
- Managing devices (including encryption)
- Providing and managing Wireless access
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Corporately Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) programs are becoming the norm for many enterprises. Often labeled as “the consumerization of IT”, BYOD is driven by employee demand for flexibility and choice when it comes to mobile devices.
BYOD poses many risks to corporate data which may be stored on an employee-owned device. Especially if the device is lost, stolen, or if the employee leaves the organization. Absolute Software allows IT to secure corporate data without any impact to the employee’s personal information including capabilities such as:
- Automated employee-enrollment workflows, including a BYOD policy implementation guide to help you legally secure and manage employee-owned devices
- Enterprise level security including stronger passwords and certificate authentication for Exchange email access
- Remote management and deployment of user profiles (configure email, restrict apps, disable cameras)
- Mobile content management
- Automated IT commands based on predefined conditions to turn off roaming, demote a device to unmanaged status, IT alerts, etc.
- Remediation of non-compliant devices including the ability to remotely freeze and wipe devices
