Mobile devices have been finding their way into the workplace since the cell phone was invented. Since the evolution of mobile devices in the workplace is rapidly growing and changing it can be hard to make sure that your device is not leaking company information intentionally or even unintentionally.
Information Technology (IT) has had to evolve alongside mobile technology and how to secure devices without restricting too much access.
There are usually two options of allowing mobile devices in the workplace. You can provide your employees with a company owned device or you can allow them to use their personal device.
Providing your employees with a company owned device allows you to monitor every detail about the phone including calls, messages, installed apps and location of the device. This is possible because the employee can expect no privacy from the company on this device.
When you allow an employee to use their own device at work you have to take their personal privacy in consideration. You might not want to monitor their phone calls, messages and apps installed.
Instead you can make the device more secure. You can install monitoring software that will allow you to lock the device if it gets lost, wipe the device if you know it may have fallen into the wrong hands, or find the device by using GPS location.
We have the ability to install our monitoring software onto any Android or iOS device and choose a profile that will suit a personally owned device, a company owned device or we can even customize a plan that will suit your needs even more specifically.
Since mobile devices are prone to getting lost or stolen they need to be protected in the best way that you can. In most cases installing monitoring software is the best solution.
This is because we can monitor the phone without interfering with the device usage. Once the device is compromised we can act quickly to get the device secured.
On the other hand if you notice an employee is acting suspiciously you can monitor their phone usage to determine if they are wasting time or acting maliciously against the company and take action before something more serious happens.
