Note: This blog is the second in a monthly co-authored series written by Charlotte O’Donnelly, Research Associate at Blue Hill Research, and Matt Louden, Brand Journalist at MOBI. Blue Hill Research is a research and advisory firm focusing on the enterprise technology marketplace. Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) has the potential to revolutionize the way enterprises approach the complex problem of managing not only traditional wireless assets such as tablets and mobile devices, but also laptops, desktops, and next-generation IT categories such as wearables, sensors, and Internet of Things (IoT)-networked devices. As such, UEM has earned its place as a noteworthy enterprise mobility buzzword. What does UEM encompass, and how can your organization seek out a solution that uses automation and a technology-first, software approach to support the future of enterprise IT?

Guarding On-the-Go Data?

July 24, 2017 by Matt Louden

security

For a business to succeed in today’s global playing field, mobile security must be a top priority. Enterprise mobility brings tremendous value to an organization; if not managed properly, however, it can also create tremendous risks. IT security pros estimate that more than two-thirds of the world’s top companies have already experienced at least one data breach.  That’s bad news when you consider each incident could cost a company more than $26 million. In addition to data breaches, employees can forget to secure sensitive data stored on their own personal devices. In fact, 64% of IT leaders believe their employers’ information is likely residing on at least one employee-owned device right now. Partnering with a Mobility Management Platform that’s easy to integrate, deploy, and use is your best mobile security option. Talk to one of our experts or sign up…

A New Perspective on MOBI

July 20, 2017 by Jennifer Montgomery

Orr Fellowship

I came to MOBI through a program called the Orr Fellowship. The Orr Fellowship is a program that recruits top seniors at universities in the Midwest and pairs them with what we call “Host Companies” all around Indianapolis. Recognized by the fellowship for dynamic leadership abilities, soon-to-be university graduates are often recruited for not only their academic prowess, but their involvement in activities like student government, fraternity/sorority life, and athletics. The fellowship’s mission is to bring driven individuals into the Indianapolis business community to help the quickly growing industrial hub progress even more. As for each individual fellow (like myself), we are lucky enough to experience professional fellowships that last at least two years. During this time, I will not only get to work for a dynamic Indianapolis-based company, but will also be provided with curriculum, network, civic, and social opportunities…

July 18, 2017 by Chad Beasley

SOC 2 Type 2

In today’s world of IT and data security, companies are more susceptible than ever before to hacks of personally identifiable information (PII) and other important data. These data breaches lead to massive reconciliation costs and brand equity damage. Companies are always targets that can be susceptible to attacks; however, a growing number of attacks are targeting third-party vendors that may handle or process a company’s data. Companies must ensure that their vendor management procedures are adequate and verify that anyone handling sensitive data has the most secure IT control environments available. At MOBI, we take our customer’s data security very seriously, and we continue to invest in the best technology, infrastructure, and training to provide the most secure Software as a Service (SaaS) product in our industry. Additionally, we pursue relevant certifications that provide substantiation from third-party auditors and keep…

Making Mobility Work

July 17, 2017 by Matt Louden

mobile technology

Enterprise mobility is transforming traditional Information Technology (IT) efforts. Without a mobility expert, businesses simply can’t keep up with their competition. Executives and company leaders are aware of this fact. While they’ve named mobile technology as one of three main needs driving IT team expansion today, nearly two-thirds of this group also believe there’s a serious skills gap in the mobility expert market. On the flip side, some end users believe their employer isn’t doing enough to take advantage of this technology—currently, only 31% of employees have access to enterprise software via their mobile devices and only 17% of companies offer all legacy applications in a touch-screen format. Whatever the reason, corporate mobility struggles can have serious long-term effects. In fact, 60% of workers are worried about somehow losing sensitive information and 30% believe their job is at risk if…
