Mobile Devices for Governments
The government workforce is likely the most diverse when it comes to tablets and mobile devices used by employees. With such a broad user base of devices, operating systems, and versions, A cloud-based MDM platform provides agencies the ability to say “yes” to today’s mobile devices yet still comply with public sector security requirements. Cloud-based mobile device management enables government IT departments to take advantage of cost savings and efficiency increases that BYOD in the workplace can provide.
Government requirements and approaches to mobility are evolving. As is the case in the commercial sectors, end-user demand for iOS and Android devices growing at an unbelievable rate. The CIO of the United States Federal Government recently described the challenge of government mobility: “The more the CIO says ‘no’, the less secure the organization becomes.” In other words, government entities face strong user pressure to adopt new technologies quickly but are concerned that security will not be preserved. The MDM platform breaks this compromise and gives government the confidence to go mobile without sacrificing either data security or user experience.
