Given the frequency with which we’re hearing about ransomware attacks, data breaches and general mobility challenges, it’s no surprise that a growing number of companies are interested in implementing comprehensive mobile strategies. At the core of these plans are enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile threat prevention (MTP) solutions, and the support needed to ensure mobility goals are met. To help our growing client list better deploy and manage such solutions, Tech Orchard is proud to announce the addition of Michael Troelstrup to our team.
Back in February of last year, we issued a blog post on device location reporting, a topic that often comes up among our AirWatch users. Last week, we received the following email from a client working to troubleshoot an issue that arose when trying to configure this popular functionality.
For more than a year, the intense debate surrounding data access and control has raged on. After the San Bernardino massacre in December 2015, Apple and the FBI feuded about access to data on the iPhone 5C used by one of the attackers. Several other court cases touched on the subject of digital privacy throughout last year, including one we covered in our blog in December 2016 in which the Florida Court of Appeals bucked the trend of siding on behalf of protecting users by ruling that the government can force an iPhone user to release the passcode to unlock his/her phone. This week, privacy proponents have been dealt another blow.
Early this year, we all watched the legal battle between Apple and the FBI unfold about access to the iPhone 5C used in the 2015 San Bernardino massacre. The feud ended, at least temporarily, on March 28 when the FBI withdrew its case from the courts after a third-party managed to unlock the device. With no real resolution provided, additional court cases have popped up surrounding the critical issue of digital privacy, and this month, the Florida Court of Appeals ruled that the government can force an iPhone user to release the passcode to unlock his/her phone.
As part of a comprehensive mobile strategy, many companies today choose to use one of a number of popular cloud-based file storage solutions, like Box, Dropbox or Google Drive. These tools provide users anytime access to the data they need from any device with an internet connection. Recently, Dropbox announced that its Dropbox Business product would be entering into a partnership with security vendor Symantec as part of a broader update to enhance its enterprise security credibility.
