To date mobile devices have largely been excluded from the business intelligence world because of their limitations and because of security concerns. That, according to Forrester Research, is about to change and the extension of BI to mobile devices will in due course change the nature of BI, it suggests.
"IT has a new challenge on its hands: ensuring that users can access and collaborate on content anytime, anywhere and on any device."
From a recent news post on mobile devices management vendor; Mobile Mentor. The author presents yet another example of how consumer technology trends are impacting the enterprise. Presenting both challenges and opportunities. As we continue to make mobile technology an intimate part of our everyday lives, why would we put our machines down when we head to work?
Network access control is an aspect of computer security that has been around much longer than the BYOD phenomenon and all the issues thrown up by having mobile devices accessing corporate IT systems. However BYOD has given NAC a new lease of life, according to research firm Frost & Sullivan.
A couple of weeks ago we talked about how the BYOD phenomenon had moved beyond employers simply accommodating, managing and securing employees’ mobile devices and were starting to look at how these devices, and the functionality they bring, could be exploited to strategic advantage; an idea dubbed ‘holistic mobile engagement’. It seems that, by and large, Australian organisations are yet to reach this level of maturity.
If your image of the average Teleworker is somebody sat in front of a computer at home, think again. Research by the ACMA shows more teleworkers using smartphones than desktop computers, and this does not include workers whose work role takes them out of the office.
We talked a couple of weeks ago about how companies that have surmounted the challenges of managing and securing mobile devices are looking at how they can make mobile technologies core to their operations, what Forrester Research calls “Holistic Enterprise Mobile Engagement”. Now Denis O’Shea, CEO of mobile management company Mobile Mentor, spells out a three-step process that can take a company from mobile chaos to mobile mastery.
There has been much attention given to managing the security aspects of mobile devices in the enterprise and as the push to use mobile devices has accelerated this has, quite rightly, been the number one priority. However, rather than having an ad hoc approach to allowing mobile devices into the corporate IT environment, every organisation should have a comprehensive policy that tries to anticipate and develop a company position on all the issues that can arise.
We’ve heard plenty about the ‘bring your own (mobile) device’ (BYOD) phenomenon: the drivers behind it; the problems it brings, the solutions to those problems. Now, Enterprises that have surmounted these challenges are looking at how they can make mobile technologies core to their operations.
You’ve done all the right things to secure your employees’ mobile devices: you’ve implemented mobile device management for basic device security and features such as remote find, lock and wipe; you’ve implemented a mobile policy, but to make mobile devices most useful to your staff they need applications. So how do you do that securely and efficiently?

The Dick Smith chain of consumer electronics stores now offers the Globalgig domestic and international low cost mobile data service through its retail stores and online, as its exclusive international mobile data offering.
Globalgig - a provider of data-only mobile broadband services in Australia and internationally - has expanded its reach to 40 countries, from just three - Australia, USA and UK - at its launch last December, with no lock in contracts and the freedom to change plans month by month at no extra cost. This means no more panic over data roaming or looking for the nearest WiFi when you land overseas, you simply connect to Globalgig and use your device as you would normally within Australia, whichever country you’re in.
If you were ever in any doubt about the need for a comprehensive and sophisticated mobile device management and security tool like 3CX Mobile Device Manager, a new report from Juniper Networks should dispel those doubts in an instant. Over the past year, the Juniper Networks Mobile Threat Centre (MTC) detected a 614 percent growth in mobile malware along with increased sophistication of cyber criminals whose attacks are becoming increasingly profit-driven.
Most employees use mobile devices to conduct their work more efficiently. Especially people that work in sales who are on the move all the time they definitely need a smartphone to keep in touch with the office and their clients. But what happens if they start to download malware and rogue apps onto their phones? This malware could start to jeopardise the corporate data stored on the phone. As a business you would want to avoid this as much as you can.
All free mobile apps supported by advertising carry a hidden cost. Those adverts can consume a fair amount of bandwidth, but they can be much more dangerous than that: they are perfect vehicles for hidden malware.
So, you’ve deployed 3CX Mobile Device Manager on every mobile device your employees want to use for work purposes. You’ve used it to enforce password policies, protect corporate data and create white lists and black lists of approved and unapproved apps. You know it will enable you to remotely lock and wipe any device, but do you have a clear vision as to what you want to do with all those secured, managed and monitored mobile devices? In short, do you have a mobile strategy? Many organisations don’t.
Secure your sensitive email attachments and remote control your Android devices with the new 3CX Mobile Device Manager release.
Okay, so you’re a forward thinking IT manager. You’re not fazed by everyone from the CEO downwards demanding to be able to use their favourite mobile devices to access corporate IT networks. You’ve put in place your security policies and deployed a mobile device management solution like 3CX Mobile Device Manager and you’re confident that the corporate information is protected. But there’s one thing you might have forgotten: bandwidth.
Business confidence is waning in the face of the declining performance of the economy and businesses are looking to mobility as one of the keys to improving both staff and business productivity.
