Look around you. If you are in a room with other people in it, there is an increasingly high probability that one or more of those people are on a mobile device of some kind. Smartphones and tablets have taken over the electronics world. They allow people access to nearly everything they might need or have at their office desk, but in the palm of their hand. At home, at lunch, even in a car on the side of the road.
Today, business professionals that use mobile devices make up about 30 percent of all mobile service subscribers in the United States. With such a large number of companies utilizing mobile devices, patch management is becoming increasingly important. With the right patch management you can improve iPhone security through more control over your iPhone management. Apple’s free Configurator tool that allows users to configure 30 iOS devices at the same time is just one example of mobile device management that helps companies improve the effectiveness of their devices.
Patch management software is excellent for any company that is trying to make sure they have devices that are up to date as well. Mobile technology management reduces security risks as well as support costs by improving control over the configuration and data on employee devices. SaaS, also known as software as a service, is another type of MDM model that can help businesses.
Mobile technology is vital for companies that want to free themselves up so that they can earn as much income as possible through the phones that they use. Forbes reports that by 2015, the number of mobile app projects will surpass the amount of PC projects by a ratio of 4 to 1. Make sure that your business has patch management in place so that its phones and other mobile technology can be properly controlled by people at your company that are responsible for making sure that your devices run the way that they should and help with your mobile requirements.
