Apptix (News - Alert), a provider of hosted business security and compliance solutions, recently launched its new mobile device management service to help organizations remain fully protected while implementing the increasingly popular bring your own device (BYOD) trend.
The service addresses organizations’ secure mobility needs through managing mobile device network access, enforcing security policies, generating compromise alerts, and remotely wiping corporate data from corrupt or unauthorized devices. It also is touted as being both HITECH and HIPAA compliant.
“Apptix Mobile Device Manager (News - Alert) is a core resource for organizations to meet compliance requirements, avoid costly government fines and legal action, and keep corporate data and applications secure without hindering the productivity boom driven by the explosion of mobile device options,” said Dave Ehrhardt, president and CEO of Apptix, in a statement.
Thanks to the mobile device management solution, IT administrators can implement an effective BYOD strategy that benefits organizations and employees alike. In fact, when leveraging this solution companies can securely access enterprise resources, applications, and information through most mobile devices.
While ensuring the level of protection is high in regards to enterprise data, firms can still retain the control over them. They can easily create and enforce corporate policies as well as gain a much higher level of visibility into every application being used with the corporate infrastructure.
Further, the mobile device management solution isolates and secures corporate data from personal data and applications on devices, ensuring privacy protection and security is made available within personal data. Even if the organization needs to wipe a device clean, employees will not lose personal data such as photos or text messages.
Other important features of the offering include wireless automated provisioning, enrollment, policy authentication, robust alerts and reporting.
“Research shows that the vast majority of today’s employees use a mobile phone or tablet device for their job, but few organizations can account for all of the devices accessing their corporate data,” added Ehrhardt. “Apptix Mobile Device Manager closes this gap securely. And, the solution is flexible enough to account for all of the additional devices that will be added to your network in the future.”
