The benefits of enterprise mobility are multi-faceted but at the same time, it is experiencing a complex evolution. On the one hand, it promises productivity, precision and business profitability while on the other hand it raises concerns regarding corporate data security. Companies cannot help but allow their employees to access important company data/emails from their mobile devices for the obvious advantages, but this increases the dangers of cyberattacks and data abuse by the wrong people. While introducing a strong BYOD policy is one solution, comes with its own set of limitations and complications.
The perfect solution lies in implementing a corporate-owned device policy
Employees need to access relevant enterprise data and information in real time to stay productive, take faster and more effective decision and to stay well-informed about business processes. Hence, provision of corporate-owned mobile devices to help remotely located employees perform their tasks with immediate effect is a win-win for both the employee and the company. This doesn’t only keep the productivity and work efficiency intact but also allows them to access data and communicate with the required people within a controlled and secure environment. Now, the question is how and why your IT plays a crucial role in managing these corporate-owned devices to ensure flawless business proficiency, corporate data security and employee productivity?
Implement a powerful Mobile Device Management Solution to manage corporate-owned devices
Just having a corporate-owned device policy is not enough unless you have a strong strategy to manage your company-owned devices used by the employees.
