Seventy one percent of companies today have bring your own device policies at work yet no security policies or procedures in place to protect those devices, yet more people than ever are using their devices for business purposes. Case in point: sales of smartphone devices have risen 63 percent from 2010 to today, and more than 1.2 billion people around the globe will use their phones for web purposes. This disconnect is alarming for employers, who now need mobile device management software as fast as possible to give them the protection they require.
With mobile management solutions, these employers can feel instantly safer. This is because they have mobile device management systems that protect all the data they have and all the data that goes through an employee’s phone, whether it is related to work or not. With device management capabilities, employers ultimately save on costs related to phones being stolen or lost, and having to replace what had gone missing.
With MDM software, data is safe, updates are conducted and IT managers have an easier task in front of them to manage devices. Through Mdm software, an IT manager could make updates remotely during specific times, thereby protecting all devices. With Mdm software, the 25 percent of online users who access the Internet solely from their phones will have encryption practices for protection purposes. And through getting MDM software now, employers are better prepped for the rise in mobile ad spending, which should increase to $20.6 billion by 2015.
