One of the key drivers of successful mobility is security. It is imperative that your mobile device management tool ensures end-to-end security for your critical corporate data and apps. Scalefusion MDM extends a secure mobility management environment for its company-owned as well as employee-owned devices used for work. Scalefusion MDM platform offers a gamut of powerful settings to secure enterprise devices coupled with security alerts and regular compliance checks. The IT admins managing their enterprise devices using Scalefusion can enforce passcode settings to protect the device from unauthorized access. In case the device is lost or stolen, it can be remotely locked from the dashboard.

But imagine this:

Someone accidentally gets access to the Scalefusion dashboard. Just like any digital access, the IT admin’s Scalefusion account is vulnerable to falling in the wrong hands, or the password is accidentally stolen from an unwanted source. This exposes the entire device inventory and its policy settings to threat, compromising corporate security.

Scalefusion facilitates all-round security with two-factor authentication to access the Scalefusion dashboard. By enabling two-factor authentication, IT admins can rest assured that the device inventory is never susceptible to misuse and unauthorized access with the help of an added layer of access security.
