and Mobile Device Management
We help our customers implement robust mobile solutions, increasing the flexibility of their workforce while maintaining security.
Not too long ago, mobile and IT were regarded as two separate entities, but as working methods have become more diverse, more and more businesses are requiring IT and mobile solutions that operate hand-in-hand to accommodate flexible working.
This has given rise to the introduction of new working practises such as BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies and other mobile device solutions, which although beneficial, can also pose a threat to organisational security due to a loss of control and central management of business devices.
We offer mobile solutions in two key categories:
We can provide recommendations on contracts and handsets for your business based on cost savings and productivity, utilising our partnerships with trusted vendors and tried and tested 3rd party telephony companies. These contracts are monitored and reviewed on a monthly basis, based on how well they perform for your business.
Purchasing directly through carriers usually results in contracts that don’t align with business requirements, such as varying pricing structures and differing contract end-dates for any new devices added during the contract term. When possible, we provide co-term contracts that allow for additions and changes throughout the term, without affecting the contract end date.
Carriers often don’t provide a personnel support service, so IT teams can often find themselves on hold when trying to resolve basic issues. We take ownership of the support offering to deliver a seamless experience. If required we can build, pre-configure and ship devices directly to end-users through our lifecycle service, which also includes device repairs.
We consult and advise on a range of multi-layered MDM solutions, ensuring your company devices and the data they contain remain protected in an extended threat landscape.
What we cover:
- Vulnerability assessments
- Content filtering
- Threat defence
- Data management
We achieve this by configuring, deploying and supporting MDM solutions such as:
- Microsoft Intune
- DEP enrolment for Apple products
- Cisco Merkai Endpoint Manager
- IBM MaaS360
- VMWare AirWatch
The same security principles and solutions are true for all mobile devices, including tablets and laptops. With cloud adoption constantly on the rise, security layers are essential for the ever-expanding agile workforce. We create technical efficiency, increase in productivity and direct cost savings from combining an effective MDM solution with other cloud technology, such as Azure and AWS – for a seamless, integrated cloud endpoint solution.
