Establish trust with users

Bridge the trust gap between users and IT by adopting a mobile security approach built around protecting user privacy. Provide IT with complete control over all corporate data stored on employee-owned devices and deploy secure containers to prevent business data from mixing with personal data.

  • Share IT’s privacy policy so employees understand which information IT can and can’t access on their mobile devices and desktops.
  • Prevent IT from collecting information on private apps while maintaining control of enterprise apps.
  • Implement data separation so IT can selectively wipe business data without erasing personal information.

Put users in control

Provide a comprehensive and intuitive set of self-service tools that allow users to complete basic tasks like enrolling, locating, and wiping data from lost devices. Transfer these and other common mobile device management tasks to users so IT can focus on more strategic goals, such as expanding the corporate BYOD program and minimizing BYOD security risks.

Allow users to self-register devices and quickly get secure access to email and business apps.

Offer a self-service portal where users can lock, unlock, view compliance, and retire devices.

Maintain an enterprise app store to give employees a single repository to locate, install, and upgrade business apps.

To support users who expect total flexibility in managing their professional and personal business on their favorite mobile devices and desktops, more companies are implementing BYOD solutions. With BYOD, employees benefit from carrying only one device for both work and personal use. For organizations that prefer stricter control, COPE programs are a viable alternative to BYOD. COPE programs provide company-owned mobile devices and desktops that employees can also use for personal tasks.
