The Foundation of Endpoint Management

With the adoption of mobile advances, traditional business operations are no longer enough.

Every organisation’s mobile (UEM) strategy is unique but the challenges may be the same. Mobile working is shifting the role of the IT department; they now need to be able to support the huge variety of devices used and brought into a business. Businesses need to understand the multiple components within UEM; Mobile Device Management (MDM), Mobile Application Management (MAM), Mobile Content Management (MCM) and Mobile Identity Management (MIM).

Businesses need insight into the security threats and vulnerabilities on every device and network even the ones they do not own but are being used in conjunction with their business. As the risks of malware attacks, compromised credentials or corrupt apps increase, departments are finding themselves more exposed and struggling to keep up with the needs of this new, evolving workplace.


Bring your own devices undoubtedly improves productivity and user satisfaction although, allowing these devices will certainly increase the risk to a business. From privacy issues and business data loss to liability issues, lost devices – not to mention compliance and unsecured networks.

The skills needed to manage this kind of infrastructure is dramatically different from that of a normal IT set up; this is where AVR comes in. Using our experience, best practices and recommendations we can assist in the implementation and improvements to your BYOD strategy.


The number of cyber security threats to your endpoints continues to rise and are becoming increasingly sophisticated as cybercriminals look for new ways to infiltrate systems and networks.

Securing modern businesses is far more difficult when a company has multiple locations, scattered workforce and a combination of various endpoints. Many new malware attackers have emerged, including ransomware attacks that have wreaked havoc on companies in a variety of industries. With data breaches continuing to make headlines, there are huge implications if attempts are made to secure networks.



64% of respondents to the ‘‘State of Endpoint Security Risk’ Report their organisations were successfully attacked.


IT Departments can spend hours setting up, apps, configurations, and security policies, they need to eliminate the time-consuming task of provisioning and configuring devices for new users. Administrators need to quickly set up devices over the air, with no need to manually configure the device.




Passwords have been known to be one of the weakest links in security for many years now, playing the main role in most major data breaches. Businesses are now moving towards eliminating the need for passwords and enabling a secure user authentication experience from all devices without the hassle of remembering and typing in passwords. By eliminating passwords, zero sign-on also eliminates one of the top causes for enterprise data breaches.



Gartner predicts that 80% of worker tasks will take place on a mobile device by 2020.
