Secure Enterprise Mobility with Enterprise Mobile Device Management and Mobile Threat Defense Mechanism
Enterprises are getting equipped with legitimate techniques, tools and strategies to mobilize the enterprises… however while there has been a delay of the discourses to implement it on an official note, users began using their mobile devices (Shadow IT) to email or to even share highly sensitive documents and transactions.

Mobile security is different from desktop and network security. Conventional security measures are no best means for mobile security… traditional antivirus software patch and identity management, firewalls, etc. cannot be defined as a mobile security strategy.
Antivirus would not work to obstruct the interference of the malware on users’ mobile device and not the traditional firewall would work right to prevent BYOD users from accessing information through insecure network connections. It says it all, traditional security systems and methods would not be the right formula to beat the mobile security challenges.. Nevertheless, we have a solution to secure mobile devices with enterprise mobile management and threat defence mechanism.
Enterprise Mobile Device Management aids to manage the life-cycle on mobile apps. This streamlines the mobile app management and follows the best practices and updates of Google and Apple instantly.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) delivers complete administration and management of mobile devices like tablets, laptops and smartphones. MDM provisions apps and policies ensuring no IT involvement to help the employees to stay productive while they are connected to the corporate network.
