Modern businesses are encouraging their workforce to work flexibly. Avenues such as remote working, working from home, CYOD, BYOD etc. are a surging trend nowadays among professionals working in an array of business domains.
This is typically contrasting from only a few years ago wherein working outside office premises was a strict no-no.
So what has made the outlook of enterprises change towards this traditional method of work culture?
- Businesses are noticing that the trend has increased employee output
- Organisations especially emerging ones are able to save a lot of money on infrastructure costs by leveraging the concept of a remote office and collaborative workspaces
- Employee satisfaction is surging due to the flexibility and work-life-balance it provides
- Since mobile phone specs are on par with computers, nowadays, enterprises can have an on-the-go, round the clock workforce
Hence the trend, especially BYOD & CYOD, due to the working mobility it provides, is here to stay and will increase in adoption. This, though, is a double-edged sword – while enterprises are happy on one-end about their employees and productivity, business-data is seriously at risk.
The proliferation of mobile phones in the enterprise presents a large number of vectors for cybercriminals to breach enterprise data by breaking into mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. This is because the BYOD & CYOD culture is nascent – typically businesses build strong defences for their networks, not for elements that carry data outside the network.
This is why network security administrators should consider tools such as Seqrite’s Enterprise Mobility Management to secure company data on mobile devices.
Here are the top five features of the product.
- Single Console Management for All Devices
Seqrite mSuite offers easy device management by offering single console management for devices in an enterprise network. Enrolment can be done in minutes, saving precious time with features such as remote ring, locking/unlocking, locating/tracing and wiping of data on devices.
These attributes can be bundled together, configured and applied across the organization.
Devices can also be tracked on a map in real-time.
- Comprehensive security management
Enterprise administrators need not worry about securing enterprise mobility because Seqrite’s built-in anti-malware functionality keeps data safe from the most organized & suave cyberattacks. Also, admins can remotely schedule a Full Scan for enrolled devices, quickly. Seqrite mSuite offers excellent web security, courtesy to browsing, phishing and web protection.
- Seamless App Management
Applications running on the enrolled devices can be easily managed and secured – Applications and updates can be pushed from the server to devices with blacklisting and whitelisting capabilities. Users can download apps-on-demand through the enterprise app store which establishes control over the use of applications. The device can be transformed to use a single app through the kiosk-mode feature.
- Easy Data Monitoring & Management
It’s easy to stay in control of all critical data with Seqrite mSuite. Digital boundaries can be defined by applying restrictions on devices with Wi-Fi, Geo, and time-fencing.
