These days, we are surrounded by mobile devices, from our smartphones to our tablets, and more and more people have started to use their own smart devices at work, causing many companies to develop “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies. These companies are looking for a simple approach to manage security, administration and shared costs inherent in BYOD. Fortunately, Sprint (News - Alert) has a solution, BYOD Management, which addresses the key challenges BYOD raises for IT departments.
BYOD Management helps companies deal with a variety of elements associated with this trend. It helps IT departments define and enforce BYOD policies in the work place and secure corporate data on employee-owned devices by using mobile device management and security capabilities. The solution also helps manage reimbursement policies for employees who use their own devices and services for work functions. It also includes detailed reporting and analysis features and boasts a customized Web portal so employees can easily learn more about their company programs.
“IT management has told us about their challenge to stay focused on key priorities while also securing corporate data and managing a dynamic environment where employees use a variety of mobile devices from multiple carriers. Our new BYOD Management service is a simple, turnkey solution that eliminates this challenge by bringing together key elements from our Device Management and Mobility Management offers and adding the critical features needed to manage a BYOD environment,” said John Dupree, vice president of business sales, Sprint. “Along with our focus on helping businesses solve their mobile security and management needs, they can feel assured about Sprint’s commitment to network innovation, which will help meet the growing mobile data demands of business.”
This new solution is the latest addition to Sprint’s Professional Mobility Services portfolio, which provides enterprise-grade managed services designed to meet the needs of any business customer. Sprint is teaming up with Vision wireless to offer this service.
