Secure Company Information on Mobile Devices

One of the most pervasive trends in information technology today is the use of mobile devices. Specifically, companies are enabling corporate information on mobile devices that belong to the corporation and to the employees. With data moving further and further away from the 4 walls of the enterprise it has become necessary to redefine the measures taken to secure the company information.

This has led to the emergence of Mobile Device Management (MDM) policies and technologies.

 

MDM technologies can manage the entire life-cycle of a mobile device: from onboarding, to in-service activities and decommissioning. These technologies have all evolved differently and approached device security differently.

Some trends to watch include device partitioning, BYOA (Bring Your Own App) and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device).

Your choice of an MDM solution should always fall in line with your mobile strategy. Each company’s mobile strategy is as unique as their service offerings.
