What Does Mobile Device Management Mean To You?

What does mobile device management mean to you? Have you come across this in your work place, and do you immediately think of your smartphone? Mobile Device Management (MDM), on the individual and organizational levels, is a way to secure devices from malicious intent. This encompasses laptops, tablets, and smartphones, etc.

MDM Security

Security of mobile devices, especially smartphones, has gained notoriety with the increase of use and risk posed therein. Someone gaining access to a mobile device puts the owner at serious risk. Gaining access to a mobile device can give the individual a gateway to all of the owner’s digital life. On mobile devices there are stored work and personal data, social media accounts, banking information, etc. Organizations that have adopted BYOD (bring your own device) policies have guaranteed both the users work and personal life are stored on the device. Companies are implementing mobile device management to protect themselves and their employees.

Employ Mobile Device Management

Employing MDM on BYOD, or corporate issued devices, involves educating employees on security, putting in place effective policies, and the use of security software. To begin with, having all employees understand the security aspects of MDM, and their mobile devices, can prevent many issues. Employees should be aware of different threats, like what devices are vulnerable to what types of vulnerabilities; for example employees should understand Android and iOS are subject to varying vulnerabilities. Malware can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Play Store; however, the Play Store seems to have more illegitimate applications, overall. Whereas, iCloud may be less secure than some Android platforms, not to mention Windows devices that have their own, but all similar, security flaws. Having a reliable policy that can be realistically implemented should be of focus. That policy should cover these various devices and be enforced. CrafTech offers the security software IBM MaaS 360.

IBM MaaS 360

IBM MaaS 360 is an application that’s installed on a mobile device providing visibility and control. Easy to use, customizable, and effective IBM MaaS 360 has a clean user interface, offers Streamlined Enrollment for iOS, and has an easy to use Quick Start screen for all setup. The application is installed on the desired devices then features can be customized to meet management and policy needs. The flexibility of the application allows an administrator to choose a more stringent policy or a loser one. CrafTech is here to guide the way for secure mobile device management, facilitate your business, and continuously monitor vulnerabilities.
