Enterprise mobility delivered by Thomas Peer provides efficiency and security that supports productivity throughout your business. Your employees need quick access to business resources wherever are working from, whenever they need to, and your client expects the same. Moreover, your employees expect to use their favourite mobile devices throughout the day—and the C-suite expects all this plus security, manageability, and controlled costs.
Many businesses follow these steps and choose to build a strategy for mobility to administer business apps, devices, networks, and data. It comes with great benefits, like saving money, increased availability, and no wasted efforts which can arise from the duplication of work, which sometimes occurs due to a lack of visibility across the workforce.
The quickly advancing world of new devices, apps and technologies will continue to grow at faster rates, and the employees will adapt and embrace the new technologies. To get the lay of the land at your company, consider these points:
Do you want to allow a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenario?
Regardless of which strategy you choose, how will you manage and enforce it?
Before deciding on any type of mobility strategy: it is important to consider your application architecture and business requirements, we can help you to decide which one suits you the best by considering some of the below:
How will your processes, infrastructure, and current technology investments work with mobile devices?
Will bring your own device present any significant interoperability or security concerns?
First of all, find out which applications your employees are using—and the purpose for which they are using those applications
You can start by analysing your WLAN traffic.
You can use independent tools to analyse traffic or use those which are built into your network to help you to identify trends that call out employees’ needs. You can keep a tab on the apps being downloaded and then find out their relevance or purpose for your employees. You can also check on security issues which may arise due to unwanted applications, consider the two questions below for this:
There are certain types of apps which do not encrypt the information they send and receive over the network, which makes it relatively simply for that data to be intercepted. Will this be too detrimental to security?
If workers are using apps to exchange or store sensitive company data, will you need to reconcile this with company policies—and if so, how will you do it?
