    Trends in Company Owned devices and ways to secure them

    Share On

    Enterprise mobility management (EMM) is the set of people, processes and technology focused on managing mobile devices, wireless networks, and other mobile computing services in a business context.

    Introduction

    Small and midsized businesses (SMBs), which traditionally lag far behind large enterprises in technology adoption, are pretty much on par with their larger counterparts when it comes to mobile applications, according to research from The SMB Group. The research found that Mobile solutions are quickly becoming essential to SMBs, with 55% of small and 65% of medium businesses now viewing mobile solutions as critical to their businesses.

    SMB adoption of mobile apps for employee collaboration, such as calendars, email, file sharing, and conferencing, and for business apps such as CRM for B2B has risen by about 20 percent in the past year alone. SMBs are also ramping up their use of customer-facing mobile apps and mobile-friendly Web sites to enable customers to perform a number of functions, including scheduling appointments, making payments, and accessing customer service. Recognizing the growing importance of mobile CRM solutions, businesses are increasingly integrating mobile CRM into their strategies to enhance customer engagement and streamline sales processes.

    As mobile adoption in SMBs has risen significantly, it has also brought some challenges in play. SMBs are challenged by high data service costs, uncertainty about which solutions are the right fit for their businesses, security and management concerns, and integration.

    Company Owned Devices

    SMBs are adopting a model where they provide mobile devices to its employees. Because an SMB can often get IT products at wholesale or bulk prices, this business model can be more cost-effective for both the organization and the employee. It provides the organization with great control over the devices and more power to protect the organization’s data both technically and legally.

    Enterprise mobility via company-owned devices improve employee productivity & business processes, but it also creates security & other associated risk. Companies always fear about employees using their corporate devices for a non-business purpose. To cope with these challenges companies adopt EMM(enterprise mobility management) or MDM (mobile device management) tools.
