Mobile Device Management enables IT administrators to securely manage, monitor, and distribute security policies across an organization on smartphones, tablets, or other endpoints. Organizations can increase employee productivity by allowing access to corporate data “on-the-go” devices but need a safe management tool to protect their networks and data. CareServ has deployed thousands of mobile devices in the last decade, and we know how to help your company reap the benefits of MDM without the typical high cost associated with set-up and maintenance.
The main purpose of MDM is to leverage the capabilities of personally owned and corporate-owned Mobile devices to improve productivity. Using unmanaged devices on a company network leaves an opening for a wide variety of cyber-attacks and therefore is a huge security risk. MDM can promote more efficient workflows and collaborations which can greatly improve productivity and, over time, can reduce costs. MDM can also help lower costs over time by freeing employees to use mobile devices anytime and anywhere and free internal staff from constantly monitoring these devices. Finally, MDM supports multiple device types and multiple operating platforms – Android, IOS, Windows, Mac OS, and Chrome. CareServ can help you take advantage of all MDM has to offer.
Geofencing creates a digital boundary – or fence - that uses GPS to control certain aspects of device performance inside and outside that boundary. The most common use for Geofencing is to monitor workers as they enter or leave the workplace and create a series of alerts and notifications if a corporate device leaves the property. It can also be used to automatically connect employees to Wi-Fi in only specific areas and automatically install apps and configure emails. The IT team at CareServ has the experience to properly configure each device for geofencing to protect your mobile device assets and ensure secure network integrity.
The main function of Mobile Device Management software is to secure and protect a company’s mobile assets from cyber threats and compromised data. CareServ uses device restrictions as an enhanced security tool that prohibits users from downloading insecure apps and as well as restricting camera use and screenshot recording. Encrypting devices makes them inaccessible without an encryption key. We can set up MDM to meet complex compliance standards like HIPAA, ISO, and GDPR in just a few clicks. And finally, MDM makes it possible to drastically reduce costly mistakes caused by security breaches and asset loss.
CareServ uses a cloud-based unified console, that enables us to remotely manage several aspects of the mobile devices and their applications. We can remotely provision many devices simultaneously as well as apply company policy to adhere to specific organizational standards. The unified cloud console allows us to manage all applications on the devices, configure basic settings on devices, and set up devices that will be used for specific purposes, like Medical Charting or Point of Sale. The MDM console gives complete control over the use of the devices for their entire lifecycle and if any staff should leave the company, we can delete all business-related information on the device and lock it so that it cannot be used again.
MDM helps enhance employee productivity when end-users don’t have to use internal staff or set up their own individual devices. Instead, they get pre-configured devices and access to necessary applications and data from day one. The use of a unified console saves time and money with easy access to all devices in one place. Downtime is eliminated with 24/7 support and automatic updates. Security risks are minimized with proper policies and security applied. However, attempting to implement a Mobile Device Management platform in-house can come at a high price and cause great difficulty for an internal team. At CareServ, we have a comprehensive solution that includes both mobile device hardware and MDM software in one easy monthly payment with no upfront capital investment. We make it easy for you to reduce costs and get the most from your mobile devices.
