Enterprise Mobility Solutions Protect What’s Yours
Failing to protect your company’s intellectual property and data can be potentially devastating to your business.
The term “enterprise mobility solutions” refers to people, processes and applications used to manage mobile devices, wireless networks and other computing services for a business.
The rewards of successfully using an enterprise mobility solution are saving money, increasing employee availability and avoiding the duplicated effort that occurs due to a lack of visibility. Enterprise mobility solutions can help protect the data and information that’s most important to your business by securing your employees’ mobile devices and wireless networks.
A recent Gartner report predicted that by 2021, more than 60 percent of enterprise apps will rely on at least one app-level management control.
There are a variety of types of enterprise mobility solutions out there, with each offering a range of employee accessibility. With so many choices available, businesses can easily find a solution that will work best for your company’s needs in a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenario.
What Does It Look Like?
For email, that means:
- Following some common sense rules;
- Watching out for malicious emails; and
- Emphasizing the importance of strong passwords with your employees.
The latest report from identity management provider Okta revealed that more than half of passwords analyzed were fewer than eight characters. One-third of passwords are between 8 and 10 characters, and only 13 percent of passwords are longer than 10 characters. Okta found that enforcing a standard email password policy of at least eight characters, one uppercase letter, one lowercase letter and one number would make it so it would take 7,000 years to figure out a password.
