With the bring your own device (BYOD) trend on the rise along with organizations providing mobile devices to employees, many of our clients are facing substantial decisions regarding mobile device management (MDM). It’s becoming increasingly common for employees to use their own smartphone or tablet to conduct business-related tasks within their organization’s network, at Starbucks, and at their kid’s rugby game. The ‘pros’ are that the organization see an increase in productivity through mobility and a decrease in IT capital; but the major downside is that the organization is forced to ensure the same level of security and management of employees own devices that they do for business owned or supplied devices.
Every organization needs to see and control the mobile devices entering their organization, whether they are provided by the company or part of a bring your own device (BYOD) program as mentioned above. This is where we come in, Greystone’s mobile device management is the most comprehensive way to make that happen. We simplify this with rapid deployment tools, and comprehensive controls that spans across mobile devices, including employee owned devices.
