Mobile Device Management software and IBM MaaS360 Are your clients up to speed with the numerous and complex factors enabling an all-encompassing mobile security? With working practices shift...further towards mobile devices every day, securing enterprise data has never been more important. Is your clients’ corporate data protected if a mobile device is lost? Is their security infrastructure ready for regulatory changes? Have employees got the right level of access to sensitive information? This is where Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) systems like IBM MaaS360 make the... structure ready for regulatory changes? Have employees got the right level of access to sensitive information? This is where Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) systems like IBM MaaS360 make the difference. IBM MaaS360 ensures an integrated, secure management of every kind of device from an intuitive, user-friendly portal. Unified Endpoint Management An integrated management enables a securely connected network of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as wearables. Desktop and mobile operating systems come with inbuilt Mobile Device Management software (MDM) and Application Programme Interfaces (APIs). Unified Endpoint Management relies on these to secure and control every mobile in a connected, cohesive manner from a single console. Mobile Device Management working on its own is significantly less robust than when working in collaboration with the more advanced Unified Endpoint Management. Mobile Device Management software can’t access, secure or control the operating system and its applications. It’s therefore both time-consuming and ineffective to attempt to manage and secure endpoints with traditional MDM or even Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions. It’s for this reason that Unified Endpoint Management solutions were developed. They provide the technology required to securely consolidate the management of the otherwise chaotic spread of increasingly important mobile devices in modern business. However, even with UEM, it’s still a time and resource-consuming task to prioritise and make sense of the constant flood of events related to endpoints, users, apps, docs, and data. It requires a UEM that highlights potential threat alerts and efficiency improvements. It requires an approach utilising Artificial Intelligence (AI). The AI and Software as a Service approach to UEM Only an AI approach to UEM can fully enable endpoints, end users, and everything in between, including apps, content, and data. It also delivers mobility insights and analytics. Added to all this, IBM MaaS360 with Watson delivers an intuitive and user-friendly AI experience. In fact, IBM MaaS360 makes it remarkably easy to improve network security and protect all your clients’ devices and their data. One of the easiest platforms to deploy, IBM MaaS360 has flexible options to set up an environment using the Quick Start wizard or at your own pace. Leveraging the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, IBM MaaS360 software resides on IBM's cloud platform. This enables multi-tenancy, allowing all types of businesses and organisations to access and use the software from their web-based login portal. Moreover, a cloud-extender plugin enables a corporate Active Directory server to integrate all of a user's normal login credentials. Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows, and Mac can all be securely managed via IBM MaaS360. Optimising the benefits of increased mobility Business is increasingly more reliant on a wide and growing variety of connected mobile devices. The rise of the Internet of Things is adding to the number of connected devices. Basing organisations around a strategy of mobility is now a primary aim. Whether developing a customer-facing or an internal mobile application, or a mingling of both, it’s essential to consider the security aspects. Otherwise, as commerce, industry and even agriculture increasingly move online, utilising mobile platforms, the opportunities for fraud will only increase. Yet, thankfully, innovations including geo-location, cameras and sophisticated touch screens present new opportunities for enhanced authentication and adaptive authorisation. Added to this, there’s a growing ability to more efficiently manage the devices themselves, leveraging capabilities like remote wipe, policy management, configuration, and secure containers. IBM’s suite of mobile application capabilities provides organisations with the tooling to design, build and scan applications for security vulnerabilities. Then, drawing on IBM’s partner community, those applications are deployed in a way inhibiting rogue versions of the app from being re-created and distributed with embedded malware. The many advantages of AI-enabled UEM IBM MaaS360 Watson increases operational efficiency, maximises data security, and enables organisations to reach their digital transformation goals. It simplifies the management and security of smartphones, tablets, laptops, wearables, and IoT. It quickly and easily discovers both mobile threats and opportunities that are unique to an organisation. Its capabilities include threat, identity, and patch-management, along with containment. Your clients can secure devices and users, protecting corporate data while upholding compliance of industry regulations. They can also discover and manage endpoint vulnerabilities, uncover new opportunities, and align with industry best practices. Added to all this, IBM Cloud offerings enable them to scale and adapt quickly to changing business needs, without compromising security, privacy or risk levels.
