MDM for Business

MDM For Business: Guide For Small And Large Companies

Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) is becoming increasingly popular for both small and large businesses. Companies like the concept because they don't have to buy devices, as employees want to use their own. Employees like it because they can do everything from one place, without having to switch to their company-owned laptop/desktop. It makes productivity soar and employees happier, but it does cause a few problems for companies. At Comodo, we understand the difficulties of keeping corporate data safe, and our device management system can help.

Problems With BYOD

The problems you face can include:

  • Legal situations because you are tapping into an employee's personal smartphone/tablet
  • Technical issues because you have to be able to see what they're using and monitor things
  • Guarding data because you have to ensure your data is secure
  • Accessing data because employees need to have their tools to do their job

Benefits Of MDM For Business Options

Our device management software helps you manage actual devices, no matter who's they are or where they're located. Administrators can monitor everything from a single dashboard, so once devices are connected, you can:

  • Deny/grant access to company data
  • Enforce compliance/security policies
  • Automate functions, including distribution and updates for apps and security purposes

You can also wipe data from devices that are no longer used, or that have been stolen or lost.

Tricky Parts

The difficulties associated with MDM for business solutions comes when employee-owned devices are wiped clean, and they lose their valuable personal data. However, our device management product allows you to remotely wipe company-specific data only. If you provide company-owned devices to employees, these should only be used for business purposes and can be completely wiped. It is best to ensure you have rock-solid policies in place and that employees sign a contract saying they understand the policy completely.
