Choosing the right tools to manage mobile device compliancy
Each organization sets their own policies for acceptable mobile devices that are allowed to be connected into organization's internal resources and services according to corporate, departmental or individual security requirements. However, enforcing those policies require the right tools to be in place. While many specialized Mobile Device Management (MDM) products may provide a spot solution, Bitdefender helps Enterprises with more holistic security approach that protects not only mobile devices, but also physical endpoints and virtualized environments. As an Active Directory integrated solution it helps Enterprises to easily manage all users’ devices with consistent policies with actions to be taken in case the device becomes non-compliant, like preventing non-compliant devices accessing corporate services.
The solution has been designed to support controlled adoption of the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) concept by enforcing security policies consistently on all users’ devices. Security features include screen lock, authentication control, device location, remote wipe, detection of rooted or jailbroken devices and security profiles. On Android devices the security level is enhanced with real-time scanning and removable media encryption.
