What is Mobile Device Management – MDM?
People are your biggest asset – but when it comes to mobile workforce security, they can also be your biggest liability; are your employees walking, talking potential data breaches?
We no longer have deskbound employees that leave all their data and access to that data in the office when they go home at night. The modern productive worker is mobile and flexible using multiple devices including laptops, tablets and phones to access and store potentially sensitive information. The challenge is to allow them to continue to work while keeping them secure. A Qubic Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution will provide a complete, easy-to-manage solution that lets you take full advantage of the mobile revolution while giving you peace of mind that your business is protected.
Mobile technology can bring to your business faster customer service, anywhere productivity, improved collaboration and more. Security is always a concern; the truth is, human beings are typically the weakest link when it comes to data security. Even if you have the right policies in place, even the most capable people make mistakes. They CC the wrong person on a confidential document; they leave their phones in taxis, restaurants and airports; they don’t enable proper security. It happens – and it could happen to you.
What can you do? Disallowing mobile devices altogether would put you way behind your competitors. And heavy-handed security policies can prevent users from getting useful work done.
A better approach is to manage mobile device and mobile data security with a light-touch using modern technology. With the right solution, you can reduce the risk of human error and give your people the freedom to work more securely. Here are three big mistakes humans often make with mobile tech – and how you can prevent them.
No matter how careful people are, today’s ultra-portable devices are also ultra-losable. And with connectivity to your sensitive data, that can be bad news. In some industries, simply misplacing a smartphone or laptop with critical information on it is enough to trigger fines and penalties – even if the information is not actually compromised.
Using an MDM suite, you can easily wipe a device remotely to eliminate the possibility that an unauthorised person can access it. You can even select which information is personal and which is for business. When someone leaves the company, you can delete your financial spreadsheets and leave their selfies intact.
