Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Perhaps the biggest influence is the fact that employees are bringing their mobile devices to the office. In fact, some employees may prefer to use their own personal devices for work rather than the workstations provided by your organization. Indeed, when faced with a technology issue employees are more likely to insure their own personal devices are working properly.
Mobile Device Management
In order to resolve the issues proposed by a BYOD policy, it’s important to make sure your organization has a process set up that allows for the management of all mobile devices that hold (or have access to) corporate data. Blacklisting is a way to restrict apps that collect personal information from accessing this data; while whitelisting allows you to pick and choose which ones have this kind of access.
Specifically, you want to have control over what applications have access to your business’s corporate data, and (2) the ability to remotely disable mobile devices that hold this data. Should a hacker to get physical access to the device, you need the ability to get rid of it in an instant.
More businesses than ever are turning to the cloud for the storage and deployment of their mission-critical systems. Why? To ensure productivity continues without a hitch, smart businesses know their employees need access to their information and applications 24/7. But, switching presents its own set of challenges. While a cloud platform offers a significant return on investment, integrating a quality cloud solution requires a highly trained professional.
