Making a decision on implementing mobile-enabling solutions and bringing about the required changes in order to create conducive environment is only the beginning of enterprise mobility. What is important is to set up a good, efficient and reliable mobility administration system in place. This will ensure continued control over mobile-enabling activities and the associated areas. Here are a few solutions that stand out as imperative for optimal performance of any mobile-enabling solution.
Mobile Virtual Private Network (m-VPN)
A mobile VPN created apart from enterprise and other VPNs, can pave the way for reliable and secure connectivity tackling network uncertainties. These VPNs also address device visibility to control and provide access to critical systems. Separate mobile VPNs can be created for end-users, managers and customers for simpler monitoring and management of mobile devices in the wild.
Mobile devices that access enterprise backend systems can be controlled by enforcing network wide device and user specific policies. This system allows remote devices to be controlled and improves security by protecting users from inadvertently taking actions that can render harm to their devices, software, data and even backend systems. Enterprises can restrict corporate devices from being used for personal purposes by restricting access to applications, browsers, games etc. and even specific websites. Further, allowing data synchronization only in known and corporate networks can help in reducing bandwidth in expensive networks and data integrity in unsecured networks. With this kind of secure system, every possible action of a mobile device can be defined and controlled for micro management and total control over deployed devices.
Secure over-the-air (OTA) access for mobile devices requires enterprises to be compliant with applicable corporate and regulatory standards and procedures. This in turn calls for additional security measures to protect network, devices, application and data throughout the enterprise (including systems not directly related to enterprise mobility). However, enterprise mobile management (EMM) and mobile device management (MDM) frameworks and solutions ensure secure, flexible and optimized mobile infrastructure including complete compliance with changing corporate and regulatory policies.
Mobile enterprises function on the cutting edge of technology for enhancing value to their business against market competition. This calls for quick deployment of patches against known and discovered exploits lest security or functioning of the enterprise gets jeopardized. With varied mobile devices on different networks and diverse platforms, a central cloud-supported update management system can ease enterprise mobility management and bring in significant cost savings by automating push updates.
