In the brave new world of ‘Bring Your Own Device,’ securing corporate mobile technology is complex, but managing it doesn’t have to be.
Herndon, VA (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Apptix® (OSE: APP), the premier provider of hosted business security and compliance solutions, announced today the availability of an industry leading Mobile Device Management service. Apptix Mobile Device Manager is an easy-to-use solution that addresses organizations’ secure mobility needs through managing mobile device network access, enforcing security policies (including those addressing HITECH and HIPAA), generating compromise alerts, and remotely wiping corporate data from corrupt or unauthorized devices.
“In the brave new world of ‘Bring Your Own Device,’ securing corporate mobile technology is complex, but managing it doesn’t have to be,” said Dave Ehrhardt, President & CEO of Apptix. “Apptix Mobile Device Manager is a core resource for organizations to meet compliance requirements, avoid costly government fines and legal action, and keep corporate data and applications secure without hindering the productivity boom driven by the explosion of mobile device options.”
Benefits Organizations and Employees
Apptix Mobile Device Manager enables IT administrators to implement an effective BYOD strategy that benefits both organizations and employees. The solution allows organizations to provide secure access to enterprise resources, applications, and information through most mobile devices (including iPhones®, iPads®, Androids®, BlackBerry® and Windows® Mobile devices) and still retain the control to protect sensitive corporate data. Organizations can easily create and enforce corporate policies and meet strict industry standards for security including HITECH/HIPAA compliance policies.
With Mobile Device Manager, IT administrators control the mobile environment centrally through a single, easy to use console. Wireless automated provisioning, enrollment, and policy authentication allow administrators to manage large-scale deployments, instantly configure policies and settings, seamlessly activate multiple devices, and push updates and patches to all devices.
Robust alerts and reporting features ensure administrators are instantly aware if an incident occurs, while actionable and results-oriented reports are generated on a regular schedule.
For employees, the solution isolates and secures corporate data from personal data and applications on devices. This protects employee privacy and protects personal data such as photos if the organization needs to wipe a device. Employees have greater freedom to select the mobile device for their work on the go. This level of flexibility and mobility is an increasingly critical component of the way today’s workers function, even as it causes security issues.
“Research shows that the vast majority of today’s employees use a mobile phone or tablet device for their job, but few organizations can account for all of the devices accessing their corporate data,” said Ehrhardt. “Apptix Mobile Device Manager closes this gap securely. And, the solution is flexible enough to account for all of the additional devices that will be added to your network in the future.”
