Security Features

Though allowing your employees to bring their own devices to work might seem like a security risk, a host of features have been bundled into the service to make this possible. For example:

  • Policies that ensure the latest operating system is in use, passcodes are complex, passcodes are not repeated often, and so on.

  • Remotely lock the device or remotely wipe the data on the device.

  • Detect and restrict rooted/jailbroken devices.

  • Anti-malware and web threat protection.

  • Track the geographical location of a device.

Administrative Features

Hosted Mobile Security has been designed to make life easier for everyone. Here are some features that help administrators:

  • User-centric management, instead of device-centric management, reduces management overhead.

  • A dashboard that shows administrators all information at a glance and the ability to get more details by drilling down.

  • Automatic provisioning of corporate resources to employees.

  • Real-time inventory of all devices.

  • A self-service portal for employees that reduces the burden on administrators.

  • Broadcast messages to online managed devices.

User Features

Users who bring their own devices to work can:

  • Remotely wipe or lock their device without contacting an administrator.

  • Add and provision additional devices without the help of administrators.

  • Set their own privacy level.

  • Receive broadcast messages to learn about critical or emergency network events from administrators.
