If you run a business that implements a BYOD policy, or “bring your own device,” you know how important is to make sure that your employees are protected from cyber threats and other technical complications that can arise from poor security.
In order to make sure that all work related devices meet the security standards of your company, and by extension, your industry as a whole, it imperative that encryption measures are in place and that authentication is required at all times in order to have access to the network and the sensitive information on it. This means the installation of a mobile device management system that uses state of the art technology, including the algorithm known as the Advanced Encryption Standard,or AES, which was first introduced in 1998 to scramble data and later appropriated for use by the United States government in 2001.
For iphone management, Apple has published something called the Configurator, which allows for as many as 30 iOS phones to be synced to adhere to the above mentioned security standards. This kind of iphone security is administered chiefly through the cloud, since BYOD requires mobile device management.
When looking to hire an outside firm to help you establish these security measures, you’ll want to choose a company that has an innate understanding of the technical requirements that need to be met to service all the devices used within your business. The firm must have a solid understanding of your goals when it comes to device management, and be willing to work hard to see those goals realized.
