Bringing Visibility, Control,
and Security to a Mobilized
Studies show the increasing popularity of remote working, as well as bring your own device (BYOD) policies which allow employees to use their personal devices for business activities. As these become more common, so do the risks when device and data security measures aren’t in place. With enterprise mobile device management (MDM) tools from Cisco Meraki, small businesses gain control over any mobiles, tablets, desktops and other devices that are connected to the network, allowing administrators to secure the devices – whether corporate- owned or BYOD – while also keeping their network and data secure. This centralized device management allows clients to develop and enforce standard security policies, scale their remote workplace efforts and create seamless user experiences all within a browser-based dashboard.
