We at Wireless Analytics are always looking at emerging trends in the managed mobility service industry, and one demand we’re seeing from customers is that they want to have access to the next generation of data analytics.
Corporations need to start treating company mobile devices like laptops. With more people using mobile devices for communication and day-to-day tasks, the door opens for security risks. WA has determined that Wandera is the leading solution for mobile security, and we’re currently working with our customers to implement the Wandera security solution for their end users.
Wandera handles two key typical use cases:
The first case is the need for mobile threat and risk assessments. Mobile devices can be plagued by security vulnerabilities, outdated operating systems, phishing attacks, rogue WiFi networks, and invalid certificates. A basic MDM can check if there’s a passcode on the device/see if it’s jailbroken, but Wandera can monitor and provide analytics for advanced threat analysis. For the person who might be at a coffee shop, they might unknowingly log into a wireless network that can access information being transmitted – and Wandera can monitor for that situation.
Now that mobile devices are doing the same work as a laptop, it’s time for companies to treat and protect them just the same. Computers typically come with antivirus software, why not have that layer of security for the phone?
The second use case is the need for visibility and accountability for enduser mobility usage. Think of a company phone like a company car – if you’re giving somebody a car to use for business purposes, you don’t want them taking it for joyrides on the weekend. A company should apply that mindset with a corporate mobile device.
With Wandera, you can cap the amount of mobile data an employee uses each month, forcing them to use a wireless connection after a certain point (you can still allow them to use whitelisted, business-approved apps if you’d like). Wandera can allow you to keep mobile costs down and avoid unforeseen high data usage bills when it’s too late.
Our clients are asking for the Wandera solution because they want to see lower monthly data usage bills and better security restrictions – and you should, too. Get in touch with us to learn about implementing the Wandera security solution for your business.
