From Infection to Immunity

October 27, 2016 by Matt Louden

Mirai

The last few weeks have been a revelation for enterprise mobility professionals that rely on the Internet of Things (IoT). Since September, multiple Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks have used connected devices to bring internet traffic to a grinding halt and knock websites offline. Should your business be worried? Before panic sets in, “no” is the short answer to this question. Your organization is not in any immediate danger, so you can pump the brakes. There’s no need to throw your IoT strategy out the window just yet. The long answer, however, is a bit more complicated. In each of these attacks, a publicly available Mirai botnet was the culprit. Essentially, this strain of malware finds connected IoT devices still using a default manufacturer password and infects them, enabling hackers to direct these devices towards a website or webhost company…

We’re back with the blog post you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seat for! Sarcasm aside, enterprise mobility leaders are truly excited about the potential Managed Mobility Services (MMS) partners like MOBI unlock. Traditional TEM vendors have been helpful in controlling and reducing expenses, but mobility creates other headaches that only MMS can manage. In case you missed part one, Blue Hill Research uncovered eight key differentiators that global TEM leaders display. Our previous post discusses the first four, so let’s take a look at why the second set continue to make MOBI’s solutions the best of both the TEM and MMS worlds: Single-Stack vs. Multi-Stack Solutions Traditional TEM companies provide a single version of data that gave enterprises an easy-to-use expense management database.

Not all who wander are lost… but if travel takes your employees abroad, they may well be lost without their connected devices. All too often, we see less-than-adequate international voice, text, features, and data plans that result in downtime and incredibly high charges. Employees may not even consider the need to add international features to their lines until they have arrived at their destination and can no longer use their mobile device. Others may continue using international services that are not covered under their current plan, unknowingly racking up costly international pay-per-use charges. What lost production, security gaps, and revenue are you risking by leaving the addition of international travel packs in the hands of your employees? How much risk are you willing to expose in international roaming charges or by leaving expensive international plans on lines all the time?…

TEM vendors

Managed Mobility Services (MMS) partners like MOBI are becoming more and more popular in the enterprise mobility space because of their comprehensive offerings compared to traditional TEM vendors. Wireless-focused MMS not only offers expense management potential, but software and services that increase complete program visibility and functionality as well.

We don’t need MOBI; we already have Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and/or Mobile Device Management (MDM). If our salespeople had a nickel for every time they’ve heard this, they’d be enjoying an early retirement on a beach somewhere. Managed Mobility Services (MMS) partners can and should include EMM/MDM implementation and management in your overall offering, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to enhancing your company’s mobility program. MMS makes your mobility program more agile and nimble than ever by simplifying management tasks, platforms, and services while simultaneously protecting organizational assets. [tweet this] At the most basic level, MMS enables your business to focus on core tasks by preventing the day-to-day time and resource drain that mobility is responsible for.
