Keep Your Mobile Workforce Safe and Productive With Enterprise Mobility Management

Today, mobile devices have become integrated into almost every aspect of our lives - including our working lives.  As of 2016, at least 80% of workers are bringing their personal devices into the workplace and utilizing them for business.  This represents a great opportunity to increase productivity, but also can create substantial new security risks.

Enterprise mobility management (EMM) or also known as mobility device management (MDM) is what mitigates those risks.  Through a combination of server-side and user-side safeguards, EMM seeks to keep networks secure despite a wide variety of devices being connected and without unduly infringing on workers' personal device usage.  Strong EMM is needed in businesses which allow Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policies to prevent those devices from becoming vectors for attack.

Hummingbird Networks partners with some of the top options in mobility device management solutions (MDM), including:

Meraki

Meraki excels at simplified mobile device management by putting all controls into a single dashboard.  A Meraki sysadmin can quickly oversee the usage and permissions on every attached device, controlling access on a user-by-user basis.  For high-security situations, stronger controls are also possible - including outright locking out or even remotely wiping devices believed to have been stolen or compromised.

Sophos

Sophos are the world leaders in cutting-edge security systems, and their EMM solutions are no different. Sophos Endpoint Protection makes no distinction between type of device - from desktops to smartphones, it constantly oversees and monitors user activity, while alerting admins to any threats.  A full range of features including remote security systems, document compartmentalization, and application management give sysadmins unparalleled options in how they manage employee devices.'
