Mobile Device Management

Mobile device management is taking on an increasingly important role in today’s business climate. Here’s why.

Mobile device management is very important in today’s business climate. Obviously, all of your users employ mobile phones to facilitate corporate emails on their devices so they can access them in an easy and precise manner. The problem with this, though, is that the password that typically accesses your email is also your active network directory and credentials. If a mobile device falls into the wrong hands and gets hacked, someone can access that password fairly easily. As a result, they’ll have access to your network and intellectual property via your data. That’s why many organizations are using mobile device management to prevent this from happening.

In the video above, I’ve outlined how this tool allows you to control mobile devices, whether they’re provided by the company or an employee chooses to leverage their own phone.

A Guide to Ethical Hacking

The term “hacking” has a negative connotation for most, but the right kind of hacking can actually protect you. Here’s how.

Today I’m going to talk a little bit about ethical hacking to clear up some common misconceptions and share what the future holds within this industry.

Over the last two years, we’ve really focused on building up the side of our business where we go out and work with our clients and other organizations to do ethical hacking, or “white hacking,” a form of hacking that aims to shore up any vulnerabilities instead of trying to take advantage of someone.

Here’s an outline of the discussion, with timestamps so that you can skip ahead to the section(s) that interest you the most:
