Now Is The Time for MDM

If your business doesn’t have a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution in place, now is the time to get it set up.  MDM software allows your business to manage network access and safeguard private data as your employees use their personal mobile devices for work.

MDM software can be set up in a way that protects the privacy of private data on these phones from access by the employer.

The need for MDM comes as the use of personal devices for work (known as BYOD, or ‘bring your own device’) has exploded in recent years, alongside similar growth in remote or distributed teams.

Some stats from Solutions Review:

  • The BYOD and enterprise mobility market size is predicted to grow from $35.10 billion in 2016 to $73.30 billion by 2021.
  • As many as 91 percent of businesses plan to have a mobile workstyle strategy in place, while 62 percent already have one.
  • Staff members are more productive when they can bring their own device to work.
  • Around 75 percent of businesses have either already implemented a BYOD policy or have plans to do so in the future.

Network security for your business is no longer only about managing desktops and servers located on-premise or even company-issued phones.  It’s about identity and access management for data distributed on your team’s personal devices.
