3 Tempting Myths About Enterprise Mobility Software

App Management

Every industry has its fair share of excuses. Some of these excuses take the form of tempting myths that are easy to believe, but, in fact, not true. Wondering if you’re stuck believing one? Here are three tempting myths about enterprise mobility management that are just that: excuses that are keeping your company from fulfilling its potential.

1. “No breaches to report so far -- our apps must be secure enough.”

When it comes to data security, good enough is never good enough. Your business relies on mobile apps and data that contain sensitive information. When 69 percent of data breaches are spotted by external parties and 66 percent of the breaches took months or years to discover, it’s obvious that internal precautions simply aren’t enough. Without a comprehensive security auditing platform, how can you be sure that you’re secure?

2. “Our company is BYOD, so security is supposed to be complicated.”

Don’t resign to a complicated, cluttered BYOD mess. Instead of taking a device-level approach, look at the big picture. Support more than one device securely with “self-defending” security policies. That way, if an employee’s enabled device is compromised or lost, your company’s apps and data remain secure on app-level.

3. “The right change management solutions take a lot of time -- and that includes scaling.”

The traditional way to scale mobile applications is fraught with time and money. Your IT department needs to gather the server and data center space, install the complicated software, and manage the physical location. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Cloud-based app deployment lets your devices securely connect with your authentication servers, allowing users to log in using their corporate credentials almost instantly. Scale and deploy with a click. Have you been working under these assumptions? It’s time to take a look at how enterprise-grade mobile applications can simplify -- and enhance -- the way you do business.
