Vodafone Device Manager: robust application management key to protecting and securing business data
With the increase of mobile apps and BYOD in the workplace, robust application management is critical to successful secure device management.
With the increase of mobile apps and BYOD in the workplace, robust application management is critical to successful secure device management. Business and personal data must be separated, and Mobile IT has to protect the business data while preserving the user experience.
Vodafone Device Manager, a powerful mobile device management solution that monitors and protects all mobile devices including smartphones and tablets, features a robust application management system that retains user experience whilst protecting secure business data.
In the first generation of mobility, business data was in heavyweight, email-based containers – sets of data protected from unauthorised access – that were secure but forced users into an experience they did not like. However, in the new generation of mobility, user experience is central to success.
Vodafone Device Manager’s connected container architecture provides fine-grained security that protects app data for Mobile IT but is invisible to the user, making it user friendly. It achieves this via two components:
· AppConnect containerises apps to protect data-at-rest without touching personal data. Each app becomes a secure container whose data is encrypted, protected from unauthorised access, and removable.
· AppTunnel provides secure tunnelling and access control to protect app data-in-motion. Fine-grained app-by-app session security protects the connection of each app container to the corporate network. AppTunnel is particularly useful in BYOD settings where organisations may not want to open up VPN access to all apps on the device.
In addition, Vodafone also offers Vodafone Mobile Threat Manager, which is a fully managed, cloud-based security solution for mobile devices. It protects business users’ personal data and also their web data against sophisticated cyber threats. It instantaneously scans all inbound and outbound traffic, with negligible performance impact from a user perspective, across the company’s mobile devices.
Vodafone Mobile Threat Manager can be deployed in conjunction with Vodafone Device Manager or added at a later date, along with a number of other device management solutions, which it uses to apply the required threat management settings.
