OneCall Manage, provider of a data-driven decision making for Wireless Management (WM), has announced an update in employee management, device management, and security management for its wireless management software suite.
As many establishments now provide their employees with company wireless devices, they are constantly at risk of sensitive corporate information being stolen. Whether an employee is using a company phone during or after work hours, they have access to mission critical documents that can potentially be leaked over the Internet without encryption or access guidelines.
OneCall mentions that in many cases, there are no companywide policies guiding their use or the ability to enforce policies at all. The company’s decision to develop a wireless policy and enforcement service was driven by the desire to keep their customers protected while managing their wireless services.
With the frequency data is being shared by wireless devices, the timing to implement companywide policies governing wireless device use is now more important than ever.
“There is an urgency to set security policies in place, and in order to do that, companies need to assess wireless user behavior and be able to act upon it, enforce the policies set up,” said Scott Minor, InfoLogix. “User behavior is the next frontier of wireless in general, and that's what OneCall Manage delivers.”
OneCall Manage’s wireless management suite handles the entire life cycle of a customer’s wireless expenses. OCM's SaaS (News - Alert) solution enables the complete automation and management of mobile devices and related expenses to global and domestic businesses.
“There is no possible way business leaders can keep tabs on the communication activity with mere business protocol anymore,” said Berylle Reynolds, CEO of OneCall Manage. “It is essential to have wireless device, security, and employee policies that are technology driven and enforceable.”
Many businesses don't even own the smart phones employees are using, which Reynolds considers a dangerous trend. “If employees buy and expense their wireless devices, there is no way to secure the device, or properly monitor their use,” Reynolds said. “And in terms of controlling costs? Forget it. The company must own the devices. That's policy number one.”
