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.
Mobile devices will stimulate increases in sales and turnover in all types of business: retailers equip store assistants with tablet devices to help customers select, locate and order goods, remote and field-based employees use smartphones and tablets to directly communicate, submit orders and service requests, speeding up the process for all parties, healthcare professionals discuss treatments with patients using interactive graphics, teachers educate using tablet devices with pupils, construction workers are shown building plans by architects on site and so on.
Whilst this mobile freedom is positive news, the negative aspect is that organisations are more vulnerable to cyber-attack as mobiles provide additional vectors for malware into networks.
The demands on the technical resources of large organisations with a high number of mobile devices can be onerous and costly. Working with an experienced mobility services provider can maximise the return on investment.
Mobile Device Management includes a wide range of mobility services and support including management and control of employee activities, corporate data segregation, securing emails, securing corporate documents on devices, enforcing corporate policies and integrating mobile devices including laptops and handhelds of various categories. MDM implementations may be either on-premises or cloud-based.
MDM functionality can include over-the-air distribution of applications, data and configuration settings for all types of mobile devices, including mobile phones, smartphones, tablet computers, ruggedized mobile computers, mobile printers, mobile POS devices, etc. Laptops and desktops can been added to the systems supported as Mobile Device Management becomes more about basic device management and less about the mobile platform itself.
MDM tools are leveraged for both company-owned and employee-owned (BYOD) devices across the enterprise or mobile devices owned by consumers.
By controlling and protecting the data and configuration settings for all mobile devices in the network, MDM can reduce support costs and business risks. The objectives of MDM are to optimise the functionality and security of a mobile communications network while minimising cost and downtime.
