What would we do without our mobile phones and tablets? None of us wants to think we are dependent on them but mobile devices have totally revolutionised the way we live and work. Mobiles are vital to businesses but are yours as effective as they could be? Do you have processes that ensure all mobiles are secure and access to valuable business data is controlled? AVR’s 10 Steps to Mobility Success E-Book can help and guide you to creating a mobile device management programme that can help take your business to the next level.
In today’s world of text speak, instant messaging, emoticons and emoji’s, less is more! For most people, mobile phones are the primary form of communication and their use within business is now ubiquitous. As capable as mobile devices – smartphones, tablet devices, laptops – are at easing communications and improving productivity, if there is not structure and control to their usage, there is a risk that they can open the organisation to a cyber attack or data breach, particularly if the mobiles are the employees own as in BYOD – Bring Your Own Device. So businesses need TBH – To Be Honest and KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid! No offence!
Mobile devices are vital business tools. The benefits in communication, productivity and access to information are undeniable, but with cyber attacks on the increase, they can provide an additional route for malware attackers to access your network and steal or corrupt your critical data. The ingenuity of cyber criminals knows no bounds and effective threat protection requires intuitive, intelligent and comprehensive technology that can adapt to the ever changing threat landscape. Lookout and AirWatch can deliver the protection your business demands.
AVR’s IT Security Assessment will check if you’re really protected.
