90% of businesses using smartphones for work drive need for mobile security

Dublin: Vodafone Ireland today announced a significant expansion to its mobile security offering for business customers with new tailored Mobile Device Management (MDM) packages to fit a business’ specific security requirements. Smart devices being used for work can now be protected and secure – making it simple for businesses to manage an employee’s remote access to company information and systems. This service is a cost-effective solution for business as it requires minimal up-front investment and is scalable to flex and grow as a business changes.

Irish businesses are changing how they work with many accessing and sharing company information on the move. Recent research has shown that 90% of businesses are now using smartphones for work, 52% using tablets and nearly 90% using mobile data which means protecting company information is paramount[1]. In order to address the need to keep company information secure, in the same research 75% of small to medium businesses said they plan to invest in security solutions over the next two years.

Launching Vodafone Ireland’s new Mobile Device Management packages, Jonathan Rutherford, Head of Enterprise Marketing at Vodafone Ireland said, “Businesses already know that security is a big issue on desktops or laptops with the need for anti-virus protection to prevent data being accessed. With mobile devices, there is an even greater need for security measures. Vodafone now has a range of security solutions that can be built to fit different customer needs no matter what type of industry they work in – this is not a one-size-fits-all product. Businesses can be confident that data on mobile devices is managed centrally and that shared information is protected.”

Vodafone’s Mobile Device Management is a cloud-based platform that IT managers or administrators within the organisation can use to manage their entire mobile fleet. It includes the standard features of remote lock and wipe for lost or stolen devices, GPS locator for tracking devices and also mobile application management to allow or restrict access to selected mobile apps.
