Pokémon No

July 20, 2016 by Matt Louden

Have you heard of Pokémon Go? Sarcasm aside, the noise surrounding it has been inescapable for businesses everywhere. Over 21 million Americans are already active daily users according to SurveyMonkey, making it the biggest US mobile game ever. As such, it’s a safe bet that someone in your organization has downloaded or plans to download the app to their enterprise mobile device. Without Managed Mobility Services (MMS) overseeing your enterprise mobility program and Mobile Device Management (MDM)/Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution, you’re gambling with the security of your mobility program. Despite resolving initial concerns surrounding the app developer’s full access to user’s Google accounts, Niantic’s current privacy policy still allows its servers to automatically record and aggregate log data like IP addresses that can then be shared with third parties.

Mobility Matters Part Three: IT

July 6, 2016 by Matt Louden

No department is affected by enterprise mobility more than IT. Many companies still use this department as their sole technology authority, so naturally the responsibility of managing mobility often falls on their already-overburdened shoulders. Managed Mobility Services (MMS) enable IT to move the entire company forward while relieving the department of the daily burden caused by enterprise mobility. When it comes to enterprise mobility, IT departments can’t focus on just hardware and software issues like they do with traditional technology. Mobility solutions include plans, features, carriers, and dozens of different device types as well. MMS providers who’ve solved these issues day-in and day-out for years often have expertise and solutions that IT isn’t familiar with or able to implement alone. Successfully managed mobility programs empower remote workforces to help customers around-the-clock, but this external access of internal systems and sensitive…
