BYOD platform overview

Bring your own device (BYOD) empowers employees to use their personal smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearables to access enterprise data from anywhere. To maintain cybersecurity, organizations must balance restrictions on sensitive company data with user productivity. A solution for BYOD devices will allow IT Admins, a corporate persona or container to control who has access and to which data, including sensitive data. With more remote workers than ever, having the right technology and a well-thought-out BYOD policy and BYOD management in place has become an imperative to mitigate potential vulnerabilities.

To maintain a good security posture for BYOD policies, an organization would need to manage employee-owned devices by combining modern and traditional management while supporting nonstandard devices at the same level as standard ones. IT departments must also overcome the risk of compromised credentials and be able to detect infected devices that are attempting to connect to the corporate network, corporate apps and data, because they can cause a data breach.

Benefits Expanded mobile productivity

With the right BYOD security policies in MaaS360, IT Admins can ensure device security on company networks or public wifi, for both enterprise and SME companies, by deploying features such as multifactor authentication (MFA). The business, productivity and messaging apps are placed in an encrypted container, which protects against leakage of data and cyberthreats.

Reduced costs

With BYOD programs you can say goodbye to corporate bulk purchases of smartphones or tablets. Due to containerization, personal data is separated from corporate data and the employee can keep their personal information intact after leaving a company, thus ensuring a high data security posture.

Increased employee trust

To ensure adherence to BYOD policies, employees need to know that their personal use and privacy are being protected, and that the organization has the tools to enforce security programs. MaaS360 offers containerization that allows for effective remote work and helps mitigate any security concerns.
