Two-thirds of all companies have no regulations in place for the use of mobile devices. Do you? Let’s assume that the smartphone of one of your employees is stolen or lost. What will happen to your business data in that case? Is an employee allowed to install applications on his iPad himself? Which server data is he able to access? In order to reduce management expenses and to prevent confidential information from leaking out, a sound policy needs to be in place: Mobile Device Management. MDM enables you to safely, simply and efficiently manage all mobile devices used by your company. Read more about the experiences of Jeugdhulp Friesland with MDM.
“Problems with overview and safety”
André Postma, ICT manager of Jeugdhulp Friesland since 2003: “The number of mobile devices in our organisation grew very fast, and our ICT department had problems maintaining overview and guarantying data security. We wondered how 350 android smartphones and iPads could be easily and adequately managed. A mutual business relation introduced us to A&B Groep, and their impeccable references and results convinced us to cooperate with them. Equally convincing were their knowledge of the market, independence and ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ mentality.
Centralised control via MDM
André Postma: "A&B Groep is a reseller of AirWatch, the world’s leading supplier of MDM systems. An AirWatch application was installed on each of the 350 mobile telephones by A&B Groep. Thanks to this unique software, our ICT staff now effortlessly and efficiently manages our mobile devices from a central system. If a smartphone is stolen, for example, then our ICT department deletes all company data with the single press of a button. We now also install or block new updates and applications in no time at all, and access rights are allocated quickly".
Very satisfied ICT department and management
Jeugdhulp Friesland has meanwhile been working with the A&B Groep’s MDM/AirWatch solution for more than a year. André Postma: “The results fully meet our expectations. Our ICT staff is very happy with the convenience it provides. The management is also happy, seeing that the management costs have been reduced and that our data is now secure. To us A&B Groep is a very pleasant knowledge partner whose added value is considerable. They always surprise us with their recommendations and solutions.”
