MOBILE DEVICE MANAGEMENT

mobile device managment

Like most businesses, you have likely adopted a mix of iPhone, Android, Windows Phone or BlackBerry smartphones. Your staff likely know all the parameters needed to connect their phones to your email system and you likely do not restrict that access. Further, the same people likely have tablets also connected to your email system. That means that corporate data appears on multiple devices – email, contacts, calendar appointments, notes and tasks. What does that mean in terms of exposure to the business?

1. If the employee is fired your corporate data may exist on and be used by them post firing.

2. If the phone is owned by the employee, they may exert their right to not have you access the phone or tablet.

3. If there are restrictions on the use of email in the office, those restrictions may not translate to mobile devices.

4. If a device is lost or stolen, the options to recover or protect the data are limited.

Triella recommends and installs the BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) to manage all types of smartphones and tablets. Devices get a Corporate platform with Corporate data in it and a Personal platform containing the user’s personal data. With the ability to wipe the Corporate data without touching the personal data, a BES server gives your business control over scenarios which may result in the loss or theft of data.
