Avoid the Cost of ‘Lost’ with MMS

April 29, 2016 by Matt Louden

Every minute, 113 mobile phones are lost or stolen according to Novell.  That adds up to 160,000 lost devices as found by Aruba Networks. Lost or stolen devices cost companies worldwide a staggering $7 million per day- a devastating potential and that is just the tip of the iceberg.  Without managed mobility services (MMS) securing your devices -and your data- and managing your enterprise mobility management (EMM), a bad situation could get much worse. At the most basic level, MMS includes services to engineer and maintain an organization’s EMM or Mobile Device Management (MDM) infrastructure to keep corporate data safe.  Some of the most popular EMM / MDM solutions are from companies like Airwatch or MobileIron. CCB Technology discovered 74% of businesses experienced data breaches due to unsecured devices in 2015, making MMS oversight crucial in preventing data losses or…

Top 10 Dangers of Lost or Stolen Devices

April 21, 2016 by Matt Louden

Enterprise mobility managers are constantly bombarded with high-tech security threats growing, evolving, and multiplying every second. A lost or stolen device, despite being one of the more traditional mobility risks, often proves to be the most dangerous. The damage one of these devices is capable of inflicting on an organization could be catastrophic unless a secure EMM solution is in place, as it takes 50% of employees more than 24 hours to report a lost or stolen device according to a Kaspersky Lab survey done in 2014. If your company doesn’t have an EMM or doesn’t have one working effectively, here are 10 things to expect when a phone goes missing: 1. Data loss or theft According to McAfee and Carnegie Mellon University, half of company devices own “business critical” data, and one-third of lost or stolen devices result in a direct financial…

Mobility in a Galaxy Far, Far Away…

December 17, 2015 by Josh Garrett

  Almost There… Almost There… The upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode VII (The Force Awakens) has me more excited for a new movie than I’ve felt in a long time. It also got me thinking about how the movies relate to what we do here at MOBI.  The biggest question I have is, “How was an organization the size of the Galactic Empire able to manage all their mobile devices?” (Quick Note: I am not saying I’m an expert on all things Star Wars, so take this with a grain of salt…)   Where The Force is Strong, There is Also Mobility While major players could always use the Force for some types of communication, how does the bottom-of-the-totem pole Storm Trooper communicate? The answer to that is an integrated comlink within their helmet, although they also carried a…

3 Technology Drivers and How MOBI Helps

November 19, 2015 by Daniel Lassell

The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) represents simplicity and convenience, and a better connection with people and their surrounding environments. Technology is the cornerstone upon which IoT is founded. Think of how different the world would be without technology. No cell phones. No computers. No electricity. But technology doesn’t just crop up on its own. According to Daniel Kellmereit and Daniel Obodovski, the authors of The Silent Intelligence: The Internet of Things, technology development is driven by three things: De-wiring (going mobile) Affordability (cost effectiveness) Miniaturization (making things smaller and more powerful) When these three things are working in unison, technology growth can happen unhindered. Thus, IoT can grow to its full potential at a quicker pace. But what do these three terms mean, specifically?   Defining the Three Terms: De-wiring means becoming increasingly more mobile. No one likes…

MOBI President On Why Companies Need MMS for IoT Success

November 12, 2015 by Daniel Lassell

MOBI President Mitch Black recently authored an article for M2M Now on the need for an MMS solution in business initiatives when leveraging the Internet of Things (IoT). Black explains the challenges that develop when trying to leverage IoT without the help of an MMS provider, whose sole business focus is the type of integrations needed to optimize IoT. He claims that it would be detrimental not having professionals handle this new landscape, since businesses would be sacrificing resources to handle it in-house. As an example of IoT already in play, Black references the use of wearable technology, such as the Apple Watch, which if fallen into the wrong hands could be disastrous. Not having the right support for such an instance could be the difference between a remote wipe of the device and lost confidential business information. Black says,…
