Currently, many enterprises deploy Mobile Device Management software as a point solution. However, it does not address the overall corporate security and tends to lack scalability. This puts enterprises at risk of losing intellectual property and customer data, increasing their vulnerability to mobile threats.
Many IT departments have reacted too quickly to supporting business processes with tools that have limited scope. For example, a broad-based business process, which straddles across recruitment and enabling workers to be more efficient, will require access to different information sources. Using Mobile Device Management software to simply safeguard the endpoint device will not be adequate in keeping the organisation safe from all the possible network security vulnerabilities.
In order for CIOs to overcome the mobile threat, and improve end-user satisfaction rates without compromising on security and compliance, they will need to work with a vendor who can meet all their mobility needs from device management to native mobile apps for email, Web access, collaboration and data sharing, as well as desktop virtualisation for seamless access to Windows apps and desktops.
