Mobile Device Security

Protect your workforce with business mobile security services

Mobile device security is a key consideration as working remotely becomes the new norm. With MDM and business mobile security services your employees can work safely any time, any place and on any device.

 

 

 

What is mobile device security?

Mobile device security describes the technologies and principles used to manage and protect mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, and the corporate systems they connect to.

Specialist mobile device management systems (MDM) allow your business to control activity outside the network perimeter. You can use centralised policies to ensure that mobile devices are properly patched and secured against exploits and phishing attacks before they are allowed to connect to corporate servers and databases.

Advanced mobile security options extend capabilities to BYOD devices too. By creating a ring-fenced area on the device which is separate from the rest of the phone data or apps you can secure corporate systems from access by unsanctioned third party apps. This preserves privacy for the user and security for your organisation.

Why your business needs mobile device security?

The modern workforce is increasingly mobile with home working and remote working a standard aspect of operations. Your business needs a way to secure remote devices that access corporate systems – including those owned by employees. Mobile device security provides the controls you need to secure devices outside the network perimeter.

Mobile device security tools allow you to define and enforce a security policy that covers your entire IT estate. With MDM you can ensure that remote devices are properly patched and updated before permitting access, thereby reducing the risk of malware or network incursion. And you can push new app updates to all of your devices, remotely.

The ability to create a secure sandbox on client devices also prevents information leakage. Data cannot be extracted or forwarded from apps installed in this ring-fence, defending against industrial espionage, data theft by compromised third party apps, or malicious employees.

A robust mobile device security strategy allows you to realise maximum value from smartphones, tablets and other portable devices by helping to de-risk your environment.
