Today’s work force needs full, real-time access to information and applications. Data mobility systems provide one integrated solution for five key areas of mobility – device management, app management, content management, access control, and threat protection.
Data mobility systems streamline business processes, enhance employee productivity, and improve customer service and satisfaction by providing workforce with relevant and secure mobile apps, either custom-developed or commercially off-the-shelf, and the mechanism to manage the apps and policies by user or device. At the same time, they protect corporate data from risks such as employees adopting unapproved mobile/cloud apps for work, corporate data leaking into unmanaged mobile/cloud apps, attackers targeting mobile devices with malware, unauthorized access to corporate data, and lost/stolen devices.
Adoption of data mobility systems enable corporate data to be secured on both personal and corporate-owned devices across popular mobile platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone). This is accomplished by separation of corporate and corporate data, allowing IT to retain control of corporate data while leaving personal apps and data alone. In this way the user privacy is also preserved. It sounds odd because so often the focus is on IT preventing corporate data from mixing with unauthorized personal apps. Yet, the reverse is also true. Employees, partners and consultants can rest easy knowing that corporate IT doesn’t have visibility or control over personal stuff. That’s also good for IT organizations, which don’t want the added liability and overhead of managing personal devices.
