Mobile Device Management

67% of SMB’s Mobile, but Not BYOD Ready

  In recent years, a variety of studies have indicated that small business owners are largely failing to implement the necessary security standards to ensure the integrity of data and networks.  Bring your own device (BYOD), which has become widely popular among businesses of all sizes, represents a major opportunity to drive productivity, though also a serious risk when not controlled. Enterprise mobility management solutions can help companies strike a balance between security and productivity, while cloud-based options offer the affordability and scalability essential for cost control in a small business environment. SMBs Embrace But Don’t Protect BYOD A recent survey, sponsored by Fiberlink, discussed how a growing majority of small businesses have already started to allow employees to use their personal smartphones, tablets and computers for work functions. Though nearly two-thirds of SMB IT professionals who responded to the survey said they have implemented a policy or initiative, only 37 percent use, or plan to use mobile device management (MDM) solutions. What's more, 33 percent of the respondents said that their policies work well for some devices, but not others.  This represents a major risk to both productivity and security, though small business decision-makers have not yet seemed to heed the call for protection and management. For example, the survey found that 49 percent of respondents who had not yet implemented MDM did not do so because they didn't see any significant threats facing their business without the solutions.    This is an egregiously false assumption. CNN recently asserted that small businesses have become the easiest prey for cyber criminals. The news provider suggested that entrepreneurs often do not have enough money to hire large IT security departments, allowing hackers and phishers across the globe to focus their efforts on this market in the form of SMS messages and other nefarious activities usually involving Apps.  However, small business owners can now access a variety of affordable and effective tools for BYOD, especially cloud-based MDM. SMB’s need to mitigate risk today, rather than remediate risk after the first attack.  In recent years, a variety of studies have indicated that small business owners are largely failing to implement the necessary security standards to ensure the integrity of data and networks.
