The ever-rising ubiquity of mobile devices among private consumers has quickly led to them being used for business as well, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Mobile devices have made it easier and easier to get work done while on the go, with laptops, tablets and smartphones providing a simple way to share and review documents, stay in touch with employees, and more.
However, as convenient as mobile devices are, they aren’t guaranteed to be secure, especially when dealing with private business data. That’s why many businesses, including many of your own clients, have started implementing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies.
Bring Your Own Device is as it suggests: more and more, workers are using their personal devices (laptops, home computers, smartphones and tables) to access company networks. To respond, companies are creating policy that dictates how its employees are allowed to use these devices for work purposes, prioritizing security above most other concerns.
BYOD is beneficial for businesses as it saves businesses time and money; instead of investing in company-owned mobile devices and training employees to use them properly, BYOD allows the employees to use the devices they’re already comfortable using. It’s good for employees and the business as a whole.
However, as is usually the case, with greater convenience comes a greater risk. Lost, stolen or compromised devices are a major liability for businesses that allow their employees to use personal devices for work purposes.
Comprehensive Control in the Cloud
This is where the cloud comes in. An ideal way for your client’s businesses to address the security risks that come with BYOD is by implementing CloudJumper’s Cloud Workspace® Workspace as a Service (WaaS) solution. Cloud Workspace® gives employees the freedom to use the device(s) of their choice while allowing your MSP to maintain control over the corporate data that’s stored in the cloud.
By setting your clients up with Cloud Workspace®, you shift the responsibility of data security from the employees to your trained team of IT support professionals. If a device is compromised, you can revoke access, remotely wipe data, and more in order to ensure total security of your client’s data.
