Mobile devices are everywhere! They’re also becoming prevalent in business, at an exponential rate. Although they allow for work to take place anywhere and at any time, this also exposes businesses to more and more entry points into a network. Mobile device management is critical for keeping your business secure. Create a mobile device management strategy today.
Internet of Things
The concept behind the Internet of Things (IoT) relies on the transmission of data over a network through any device with an IP address, including traditional ones such as cell phones, laptops, tablets to any other equipment capable of carrying a chip or sensor. Although there are many options, mobile devices are still the most widespread type under the umbrella of the Internet of Things.
As with all networked technology, mobile devices are just as susceptible to malware, hacking, and other security concerns. Thus, taking security precautions is a valuable step toward protecting your business, your employees, and your clients. Investing in IT mobile device management can help you keep devices proactively protected with the latest up-to-date information. Implementing simple security steps, such as setting device preferences to auto-lock and requiring a password, biometric verification, or multi-factor authentication to access each device, will protect your company’s information in the event that a device is lost or stolen. Also, don’t forget about user training, to make sure employees know best practices and important usage policies.
