About half of all cell phone users in the United States own a smartphone, and estimates say that by 2015, over half of smartphones used in business will be employee owned. If you are a company issuing mobile phones, you may want to consider a mobile device management company to ensure the security of the data on these mobile devices. In fact, a third of employees who use a personal mobile device for work say that their company’s data is not encrypted or secure.
Mobile device management is useful for managing installed applications, managing and securing company data, managing passwords and restricting access to sensitive data in the event of mobile device loss. For instance, if you offer company issued Android devices, working with a Android device management company can help you to strengthen your companies’ security policy and precautions. Android in the enterprise system means greater security. Android, sometimes called Droid, is a Linux based (open source) operating system most commonly used on touchscreen devices such as mobile phones and tablets. Sharing corporate information with a third party mobile device could be disastrous in the event that the device is lost or stolen.
Android management or Android in the enterprise can help your business to strengthen its Android in the enterprise policy without spending copious amounts of money. A strengthened Android security model allows for greater employee productivity, as they can work from remote locations, and access company information on the go. Employee use of company issued devices can lead to greater productivity, less paperwork, more accurate billing and record keeping, added visibility, streamlined workflow, and more.
