The concept of allowing employees to bring their own mobile devices to the workplace is becoming increasingly commonplace. So much so that employees now demand access to enterprise applications on their smartphones and tablets. This poses a tremendous challenge for CIOs, as it involves figuring out how to provide applications on so many different screen sizes and platforms. It also involves ensuring that so many more devices on the network don’t overload it, choke the Internet bandwidth, and of course security issues.
The software world is fast responding by introducing different types of tools to help organizations manage these employee-owned mobile devices. Here are some of those tools, and we’ve even given some of them on this month’s DVD.
Airwatch: It supports all major mobile platforms, allowing you to implement a flexible BYOD program. User’s authentication, profiles, applications and content configure automatically based on user and device ownership type. It also limits access to enterprises resources. Administrators can set BYOD policies, push profiles and apps, and configure custom access to corporate content specific to employee-owned devices.

AmTel MDM: Cloud-based Amtel solutions are compliant with SSAE 16 Type II security, with very high level of data security and reliability. It manages BYOD mobile device security, mobile apps via blacklist/whitelist, secures data access, and exercises location-based control with geo-fencing restrictions. Amtel delivers a single integrated solution as a cloud based service that does not need any hardware or software to plug into your corporate network. It supports all types of mobile platforms.
