Using personal devices for work is convenient. Plus, employers can save on the cost of buying work phones. However, managing these devices is a challenge. A Mobile Device Management tool is a must-have solution for a safer Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy.
The rise of BYOD
The pandemic has sped up the adoption of BYOD, with 59% of firms having a BYOD policy in place. Using a personal phone makes sense for people who work from home or on the go. It also means employees are available after hours.
However, BYOD isn’t without risks. With 85% of data breaches including a human element, you can’t overlook personal phones. From data theft to malware getting into your network, there is a complex threat to manage.
How does Mobile Device Management work?
An MDM tool improves control, visibility and security. Employees get all the benefits of personal devices for work, but you remain in control of your data. The result is a safer IT environment with all the flexibility and convenience of BYOD.
SecureTech offers a managed MDM solution with the following features.
- User-friendly solution
Our managed MDM solution uses a centralized location from which you can manage your data. You have complete control over this tool. Besides, the user-friendly features make things easier for your IT team.
Users need to install a company portal to get started. Then, you can roll out this solution remotely. You can also remove apps or adjust settings remotely.
- Cloud operation
Our MDM tool uses Microsoft Cloud. Microsoft is one of the top cloud service companies. Thanks to this safe and reliable platform, our MDM tool is always on. Plus, you can count on its speed.
It’s a flexible solution that works with Microsoft 365 E3. You can also use it by itself if you would prefer a stand-alone license.
- Convenience and security
Users can create different profiles on their phones or laptops. These profiles work as compartments for personal and professional apps. It improves privacy since you won’t have access to personal data. It could result in a better adoption rate for BYOD if employees have privacy concerns. And for shared devices, you can create permissions based on each user’s role.
There are additional control features to explore, such as permissions for accessing data. Creating permissions based on who the user is will improve security. In addition, you can also create permissions based on the connection type. With this approach, you’ll protect your data from unsafe connections.
BYOD is a compliance challenge. Most frameworks have requirements regarding how people should access data. However, it’s easy to bypass these standards when working from home.
Our MDM solution comes with built-in tools for compliance. Our solution is HIPAA-compliant for health organizations. It also meets PCI-DSS standards for payment data. Besides, you can meet GDRP requirements and comply with other legal and industry standards.
