How To Manage a BYOD Environment

If you’re like most organizations out there, chances are pretty good you’re already knee-deep in a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environment. While BYOD can be good for your business in that it allows your users to identify and use the too they believe is best for the job, it can create a management nightmare. Mobile Device Management solutions that make managing the new workplace a snap.

Companies like Airwatch and MobileIron offer a number of solutions for a mobile BYOD environment. From Mobile Application Management to Mobile Content Management to Laptop Management and Mobile Email Management, these solutions can cover just about any environment you can dream up.

Here are some of the important principles:

  • Today’s enterprise has a diverse fleet of devices. Mobile devices are becoming more and more common, and this is a good thing. Users are able to do what they want and need to do in a much more efficient way than ever before. Airwatch is based on the idea that users know what devices work best for them, but that it’s up to the organization to effectively manage the unique threats created by this new reality. 
  • A single management console. Airwatch provides a single management console that lets you view all of the devices, no matter what platform or type of device, used by and connected to your enterprise. This includes employee-owned as well as corporate-owned devices. With directory integration services for both AD and LDAP, the custom roles that already exist in your corporate structure can be implemented into your mobile device management, as well. In addition, the single management console creates a single point of enrollment for devices in your enterprise, as well.
  • Real time data. Airwatch uses real-time dashboards that give administrators a high-level graphical view of the deployment of devices in their fleets. From there, they can drill down into the enrolled devices and look at all of the user information details, as well.

Through Unitiv, we can help you find a comprehensive way to get a handle on the new reality of the BYOD enterprise.
