Secure your Mobile Devices & Corporate Data with 3CX Mobile Device Manager (Sponsored)

A challenge for any smartphone user is keeping your device and data safe. When it comes to corporate mobile devices, arguably there is even greater value on ensuring security. There could be sensitive and business-critical information stored on a mobile phone or tablet that incurs a level of risk should that device be lost or stolen.
While malware issues leveled at the Android platform might have been overblown, there are plenty of things a user or a network manager can do to ensure mobile devices and the data they might contain remain safe. Solutions like 3CX Mobile Device Manager can even help network administrators to make such measures compulsory. Furthermore, even if the device is lost or stolen, there is still a way of maintaining network security.
Perhaps the first port of call should be a strong password. Android devices enable you to use Face Unlock, Patterns or Passwords to keep your device locked. With 3CX MDM, the network admin can enforce a strong password policy where the password length, time before device auto-locks and a maximum failed password attempts can all be configured. Additionally, if certain attempts to unlock the device fail, the device can have its data wiped remotely.
In the UK alone, some 10,000 phones are stolen on a monthly basis. While individual users, especially on Android, have their contacts, photos and even music held in the cloud, things are arguably far more serious for a corporate user whose device contains sensitive business data. Insecure data could threaten an employee, a company or even a sector if it fell into the wrong hands. Security then could not be more vital. With 3CX MDM, a lost device can be remotely locked tight or even wiped of its data with just a few mouse clicks. While a device might need to be replaced, the data contained on it need not be exposed.
3CX Mobile Device Manager can give you a genuine peace of mind when it comes to keeping sensitive corporate data safe. Whether it be the ability to enforce a strong password policy or lock and wiping data remotely, the service is an excellent security solution.
