Many organizations are now supporting a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategy, allowing employees to bring personal devices to work and connect them to the corporate network. While there are many benefits to be gained from BYOD – including cost savings, employee satisfaction and productivity gains – it can expose an organization to a range of challenges and potential risks. Fixmo offers a strategic approach to addressing these challenges and managing the risks associated with the BYOD through an integrated solution that helps you manage and secure personal-liable devices and maintain corporate compliance.
As more and more personal-liable devices connect to the corporate network, it is becoming increasingly difficult to manage and support them. Inventory management, policy enforcement, access controls, monitoring and reporting – it all adds up to growing complexity and uncertainty.
Fixmo Enterprise Mobility Platform (Fixmo EMP) helps you manage that complexity and get a handle on your mobility deployment. It scans your environment to discover mobile devices connected to your network – including BlackBerry, iOS and Android devices – and provides centralized administration tools for user management, policy enforcement and device configuration. It detects devices that are out of compliance and provides simple tools to help get them back on track. And with Fixmo SafeZone, it offers a fully integrated solution for deploying and managing secure and contained corporate email, browsing and applications on personal-liable devices. Watch the video below to understand how you can embrace BYOD and enable next-generation endpoint security, compliance and employee empowerment.
Mobile devices in the workplace are exposing organizations to the risks of corporate data leakage, privacy loss and network intrusion. If exploited, these risks can lead to harmful corporate espionage or proprietary data loss, as well as costly financial penalties for organizations in regulated industries. With BYOD, organizations face greater exposure to these risks due to limitations on how personal devices can be managed and controlled compared to corporate-owned devices.
With BYOD, IT may not be able to enforce:
Fixmo helps you overcome these limitations through a secure encrypted workspace on personal-liable devices that is controlled and managed by IT. Fixmo SafeZone is a virtual container for corporate data and apps that gives IT back the control they need to keep their corporate data protected and controlled.
With Fixmo SafeZone, all corporate data – including email, documents and custom apps – stays encrypted and contained in a secure workspace on personal devices. IT retains full control over the secure workspace and can enforce stronger container-level access controls, third party app restrictions and remote wipe commands without impacting the personal side of the device.
With Fixmo SafeLock MDM, IT can manage device-level and container-level security policies from a single federated management console. It also monitors the integrity of BYOD environments to detect potential compromises such as OS rooting or policy tampering. In the event of a detected breach, it can lock down access to corporate data or wipe it entirely without impacting the personal side of the device.
With Fixmo AppZone, you can centrally manage distribution and support of mobile apps through a cloud-based Enterprise App Store. Leverage its powerful analytics to track how employees are using the applications, and make it easy for employees to find all of your business apps on their personal device.
In addition to managing BYOD and securing corporate data, Fixmo Sentinel Integrity Services monitors devices for potential compliance breaches and helps you counter them before they occur. It provides comprehensive compliance reporting based on the actual current state of mobile devices, policy configurations and corporate data so that you can prove compliance at audit time.
Fixmo helps organizations manage and secure their devices, protect their private data, maintain system integrity and prove regulatory compliance so they can confidently and securely embrace the BYOD approach.
