Mobility - BYOD Vendors
The acronym BYOD is now a common term, yet there is still a great deal of confusion over this topic. Accumuli have an in-depth knowledge of dealing with mobility having delivered application control to mobile service providers for over 10 years. During that time we have seen the change in which people now use their own devices to access two main forms of content.
People use mobility to ensure that that have access to the internet wherever they may be and they use their own devices as they have a personal preference to a type of device and they want instant access to their own data (music, photo’s, email, etc).
In order to map this usage into a secure way of working there are a number of key areas that an organization must focus:
1/ Access Control
2/ Device Management
3/ Data protection & enablement
Access control is now the key concern for mobility and BYOD, if you allow all devices onto an open network you will have no control of what they are accessing and if they are secure. If you manage access you can control what a user can access and ensure you critical data is always protected.
Device Management will enable correct configuration and where possible the separation of personal data from corporate data.
If the device has the option to store corporate data, then it will also be important to ensure that the data is protected in case of device loss or damage.
The key driver to success with Mobility and BYOD is defining a policy of use. Once this has been accomplished we can ensure that the platforms can be put in place to deliver the requirements to protect your business.
