Webinar - Mobile Device Management Must Fit Your Business Needs
By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor
With the multitude of mobile device management (MDM) solutions currently on the market, how can you ensure that you are selecting the ideal one that will help you reach your specific company-wide goals? While it may seem at first glance that this type of challenge can be overcome by simply selecting the offering with the most diverse capabilities, the solution of choice actually needs to have a little more substance to it.
In fact, according to industry analysts, this legacy “one size fits all” approach that used to work when it came to MDM platforms is no longer acceptable. Now, a fully customizable way to enable a business to go fully mobile and remain protected is becoming more and more vital by the day.
With a personalized MDM solution in place, organizations throughout nearly every industry can gain a competitive edge in addition to reducing costs and driving both efficiency and employee productivity. Employees currently are demanding a way to access key data while on-the-go from their device of choice, at anytime. Yet in order to protect a corporation from being infiltrated by a cyber attack, MDM is being looked upon as a necessity.
In a recent book titled “Mobile Device Management for Dummies,” Mike Oliver from Sybase (News - Alert) iAnywhere revealed, “Without the appropriate security, mobile devices are extremely vulnerable to security gaps. As a result, the risk of intrusion is high and security controls are inconsistent at best and often unenforceable. Whether it’s hackers, viruses, corrupted data, or lost or stolen devices, there’s plenty to be concerned about.”
Due to the fact that security will always be an issue that continues to increase as more enterprises go mobile around the globe, now is the time to enable your IT team to gain the valuable knowledge needed to permit an entire workforce to use one device for both business and personal use, while simultaneously mitigating the associated risks.
Nobody knows this better than Aragon President and Lead Research Analyst Mike Anderson. And that is why he will be hosting a webinar in conjunction with Douglas Louie, senior director of Product Marketing Enterprise for Smith Micro (News - Alert), in order to highlight the vitality of enterprise mobile management (EMM), its main elements and the standards that must be followed when implementing this type of next-generation product.
Taking place tomorrow, Wednesday, May 8, 2013 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. PDT, the event is the perfect time for enterprise executives and IT managers alike to comprehend the obstacles introduced when leveraging a BYOD strategy and how to enhance security within the corporate environment.
