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.
