What is Mobile Device Management?
Mobile Device Management, or MDM, is a new function of our Managed IT Services to assist our customers in monitoring, managing, and tracking their smart devices such as Apple iPhones and iPads, and Droid. Some of the key features of this program include:

Why is this important?
Every employee’s smartphone could be an open door to your secure network & critical data. IDC reports that 40% of IT decision makers say they let workers access corporate information from employee-owned devices, but 70% of employees indicate that they access corporate networks this way. Mobile computing is becoming an increasingly vital component of every business’s operation. As end users access critical business information, communicate with customers, and leverage their mobile device to support their day to day activities, you need to ensure that the same management, security and oversight solutions you rely on for your IT.
What are some of the risks for companies with unprotected mobile devices?
Unprotected Corporate Data – all it takes is one lost phone without a password for all your corporate data to become available to anyone.
Interrupted & Distracted Employees – HR is the # 1 cost for any business, and any disruption to their productivity will hurt your bottom line.
Lost Opportunity – staying connected is vital in today’s business world. Missing a single e-mail can mean the difference between winning a customer and losing a deal!
