US officials announced mobile phones will not be included in a round of tariffs on Chinese imports set to go into effect on 1 September, granting a temporary reprieve to Apple and other technology companies.
As the world becomes increasingly connected, it becomes easier to get online from anywhere. This creates benefits for employers, such as allowing flexible work schedules and remote work. At the same time, it exposes the enterprise to potential threats by cybercriminals.
More organizations are turning toward computing solutions that allow employees to stay connected and work on the go. While the upside is too good to pass up â€” decreased downtime and increased communication â€” companies need to be prepared for the inherent risks of enterprise mobility.

In my previous post, I shared the virtues of endpoint management on the employee experience and the benefits it brings to organizations. However, it is equally important to look at the people who are executing this process and what they get out of it. Letâ€™s shift focus and discuss how IT professionals and their teams can benefit from unified endpoint management.
The question on many IT minds is, â€śwhatâ€™s in it for me?â€ť. On the one hand, offering employees the ability to utilize the latest technologies in the workplace makes for happier end users, but thatâ€™s a tangential benefit to IT at best. The only quasi-measurable result stemming from this might be less pestering from employees in regard to the access and integration of technology in the workplace.
For decades, PCs were institutional at the vast majority of large, corporate companies. IT traditionalists balked at integrating Macs into their network, despite the quality, security and capability of these Apple devices. As the proliferation of tablets and smartphones in the workplace increased, it made ITâ€™s job increasingly complex. But with the advent of unified endpoint management (UEM) technology, incorporating Apple in the enterprise is both seamless and simple.
As we expand our services into a growing number of industries, we see commonalities in several areas. In addition to a desire for better data security, a more productive workforce, and processes and systems that free up IT time and resources, companies on the leading edge are paying close attention to how technology impacts company culture.
