Managing Devices That Connect To Company Data

As a business owner, you should control every device that connects to your company network, cloud accounts or data. In today's workplace, employee's often use their personal devices for work, and this causes IT security issues.

The most secure option of managing devices that connect to your company data is to own them, secure them and manage them yourself, and loan them to employees for use. If you allow employee owned devices to access company data, it is imperative that you establish Mobile Device Management policies.

We can do that for you.

FAQ's about Mobile Device Management

What is Mobile Device Management?

Mobile Device Management (MDM) is an IT security framework which allows companies to better control access to company data on employee's devices, or to restrict it altogether, as well as set and enforce IT security policies to limit risk of data loss and breach.

What are the main features & benefits of Mobile Device Management?

The main features and benefits of Mobile Device Management are:

  • User Access Control – user accounts and devices are authenticated against approved list before they can connect to company data
  • Data Security - enforce Do Not Copy, Do Not Forward, Do Not Download and other data security controls
  • Secure Password Enforcement– enforce strong passwords that meet minimum requirements
  • Enforce data encryption – prevent non-encrypted devices from connecting to company data
  • Enforce screen locks – extra protection on devices leaving company premises
  • Remote Device Wipe – in the event of theft, loss or employee exit, company data can be wiped from employee owned devices

Enabling these IT security controls are considered best practice.

Do I need to get consent from employee's to use mobile device management?

If the devices are company owned, you do not need to obtain consent from employees, however you may wish to have all employees sign an Acceptable Use Policy which outlines expectations for each employee to practice good cyber security habits, and not to engage in high risk behaviour.

If the devices are employee owned, you may need to obtain consent, especially if you wish to employ remote wipe of a device after employee departure.  Alternatively, with the right MDM setup, you can simply revoke access to company email and documents after employee departure, which is less invasive than a device wipe, and a reasonable security practice.

Again, having employees sign an Acceptable Use Policy is recommended, and considered best practice. Your legal counsel can assist you in drafting your policy, or you can find free templates online like this one here.

Does my small business need Mobile Device Management?

Every business, regardless of size, needs to employ Mobile Device Management to control access to private data and reduce risk of data leaks, data breach and unauthorized access.
