The Mobile Device Management Challenge
Today more personal consumer computing devices — such as smartphones, laptops and tablets — are brought to the workplace by employees for use and connectivity on the corporate network.
The primary challenge for IT is the ability to manage the risks associated with this mobile access to data, while securing company issued and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) mobile devices. CWPS will assist you in monitoring, managing and securing your employees’ mobile devices that are deployed across multiple mobile service providers and across multiple mobile operating systems being used in your organization.
