Security in an era of BYOD
The preponderance of mobile devices in the workplace, both for personal and professional use, have changed the way we work. The prevalence of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs has provided advantages to employers and employees alike. Many organizations have embraced BYOD strategies. While this is an excellent way to save on capital expenditures and empower employees to manage their workloads, it carries significant security risks. The use of personal devices over the organizational network must be factored into any mobile use strategy.
What can you expect in a managed services solution that supports mobile devices?
Any managed services solution that you consider should include an enterprise-class mobile device management (MDM) solution. You need to protect your mobile devices from potential security risks. These devices also create additional requirements for network bandwidth, and you need to make sure your IT infrastructure will support the increased use. From a security perspective, many layers can be implemented depending upon your specific needs. MDM solutions provide features such as password enforcement, find-me, remote wipe and work/personal application segregation for added security.
Why should you outsource management of your IT infrastructure including mobile devices to Corserva?
Corserva’s solutions for enterprise-class mobile device management protect your data and IT infrastructure from the security risks mobile devices create and optimize the infrastructure for more efficient use by such devices, making it easier for employees to safely work on their own devices inside or outside of the office. Our mobile device management solutions can be customized, so you only pay for the services you need. Our solutions are flexible and scalable, enabling you to easily make a change to your mobile strategy.
Our Three-Pronged Approach
Corserva uses a three-pronged approach to mobile security to ensure protection at the source, over the internet, and within applications.
Mobile DevicesMobile devices are used by workers inside and outside of the office. They include smartphones, tablets, laptops, and notebooks. Any device that connects to the internet represents a new potential security risk. Corserva limits those risks by developing mobile use policies and ensuring each device has the appropriate MDM security software in place to match the specific needs of your company.
WiFiWireless capabilities have made workers more productive than ever, but that productivity comes with a cost in the form of security lapses. Mobile-friendly WiFi networks must be fast enough and have the capacity to handle the surge in use that comes with increased access via mobile devices. Corserva enables organizations to create strong and secure wireless networks with enterprise-grade routers and secure access points, giving you complete control of your wireless network performance and security.
ApplicationsApplications represent another security risk, particularly if a device is lost or stolen. In the event of the loss of a device, any corporate data that is on the device is at risk of theft, and the thief may have the ability to access your network. Securing these devices in the event of loss is a core component of Corserva’s mobile device management.
