Enterprise Mobility Solutions Offer Flexibility & Security
In today’s highly mobile world, enterprise mobility solutions are a key success factor for your business. Why? Because of the need to balance security against the ever-higher levels of responsiveness and access to mobile data that you, your customers and your employees demand.
Making mobility work for your business is not simply a matter of picking up the latest mobile device or installing a few apps on your phone. Mobile devices provide the freedom to operate from anywhere, but those devices need to be secured and managed effectively to make sure they don’t accidentally open the door for a security breach of your business network and the data it contains.
That’s what enterprise mobility solutions are all about. Learn more from Tolar Systems.
Enterprise Mobility Solutions Protect What’s Yours
The term “enterprise mobility solutions” refers to tools and processes used to manage mobile devices, wireless networks and other computing services for a business.
An enterprise mobility solution can help your business save money, increase employee availability by allowing them to work from anywhere and avoiding duplicated efforts that can happen when employees and partners are unable to access one another’s work or work collaboratively on mobile devices.
Perhaps even more important, enterprise mobility solutions protect your business. A breach of intellectual property and data can be potentially devastating to a small business: according to UPS Capital, data breaches can cost small businesses $84,000 to $148,000. In as many as 60 percent of cases, the costs associated with a data breach, including notifying customers and remedying the breach, can drive a small business out of business within 6 months.
Enterprise mobility solutions can help protect your business by protecting the data and information that’s most important and securing your mobile devices and wireless networks across your business.
