As more organizations start adopting bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies around the world, they have to be mindful of the many dangers this technology can introduce. In their haste to reap the rewards BYOD offers, some organizations are implementing the policies without proper consultation as to the risks they face.
If the network in which the BYOD policy is being introduced is not adequately protected company and personal data can be compromised. MOBI Wireless Management, a provider of wireless mobility management has launched a BYOD Advisory Service to consult organization on the proper implementation of this technology so they can enjoy all the benefits without falling victim to the risks.
The service will provide the most comprehensive consultation service in the industry from a company that has been managing more than 115,000 wireless lines for some of the largest organizations. The consultation starts with a thorough evaluation of an organization followed by an outline and specific recommendation from a comprehensive report.
A rollout plan is then suggested to help the organizations implement or refine their BYOD policies. If a mobile device management (MDM) solution is required MOBI will assist the organization in choosing, configuring, and implementing the right solution. The experience MOBI brings to the table covers more than 100 points of discussion with an understanding of the MDM environment that is objective.
The evaluation stages of the consultation include: a kick-off call, online discovery, on-site consulting, analyze BYOD penetration analysis, infrastructure risk assessment, evaluate BYOD readiness evaluation, and MDM needs assessment. Based on the findings the report will show the BYOD state of the organization and point out the best recommendations to improve or launch a BYOD program.
"Our BYOD Advisory Service is an organic outgrowth of our dedication to empowering organizations with the knowledge, tools, and support necessary to truly capitalize on the full benefits of a mobilized workforce," said CEO, Scott Kraege.
With more than half of all employees moving towards implementing BYOD policies in their organization by 2017 – according to Gartner (News - Alert) – IT management will be looking for third party organizations providing expert service in this growing field.
