Frequently Asked Questions

Securing and Utilizing Mobile Devices within a Company’s Workflow.

What is the difference between BYO device management and fleet device management?

Fleet devices are the smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices that are owned by the company. If your business has fleet devices, you can have complete control over the security, functionality, and access of those devices to applications or sites on the internet. BYO device management is less restrictive because your business does not own the devices brought to work by your staff. However, you still want to ensure that those devices aren’t used as an avenue of attack for cybercriminals targeting your business.

How are my employees going to react to a BYO mobile device management strategy implementation?

Employees generally accept BYO mobile device management well, if you explain the following:

  1. None of the software used in BYO device management collects private information about them from their phones or tablets. (Their boss is not spying on them.)
  2. Their phone or tablet is an “endpoint” that cybercriminals can use to gain access to private client files if the mobile device is not properly secured.
  3. Their personal privacy is protected at a higher level with participation in BYO device management because their phone can be locked or remotely wiped for them if they lose the device or if it is stolen.
