Mobile Device Management
The average office worker will probably have more than one work device, i.e. a laptop and a smartphone, especially during a lockdown!
These devices are deployed across multiple mobile service providers and across multiple mobile operating systems, so can a be little difficult to manage.
A mobile device management (MDM) solution, such as Microsoft Intune, can be used to monitor, manage and secure employees’ mobile devices.
With Intune, you can:
- Choose to be 100% cloud with Intune, or be co-managed with Configuration Manager and Intune.
- Set rules and configure settings on personal and organisation-owned devices to access data and networks.
- Deploy and authenticate apps on devices – on-premises and mobile.
- Protect your company information by controlling the way users access and share information.
- See reports on users and devices that are compliant, and non-compliant.
Security – MFA & Antivirus
With increased remote working, comes increased cyber security risks. Having a strong password often isn’t enough, for example, if your credentials are leaked in a data breach.
Multifactor authentication involves an additional step to add an extra layer of protection to your accounts. The extra step could be an email or text message confirmation, or even a biometric method such as facial recognition or a fingerprint scan.
Although having a firewall is important, it’s inevitable that online threats can get through. A good antivirus software can act as the next line of defence by detecting and blocking known malware. Even if malware does manage to find its way onto your device, an antivirus may be able to detect and, in some cases, remove it.
Backup for Office 365
Deploying Office 365 may have been one of the best business decisions your organisation will make, allowing you teams to collaborate wherever they are, on their favourite devices….but is their data secure? Nobody is safe from cyber-attacks.
With some of the biggest names in business and public services getting caught out, the threats are everywhere. Mobile phone companies, major retailers, social networks, even the NHS – they’ve all been hit by data theft, phishing scams and ransomware.
