Enabled by technology and spurred by the pandemic, more companies than ever are managing remote employees. As the number of mobile devices and laptops used by both remote and in-office workers increases, it’s critical to have the most up-to-date solution to manage and protect them.

How can you tell if your mobility management solution is outdated? In the last 10 years, we have seen dramatic changes and improvements in managing endpoints (smartphones, tablets, laptops and rugged devices). Legacy solutions aren’t enough anymore, and many don’t address today’s vulnerabilities. Plus, today’s solutions are much easier to manage than legacy systems and include must-have security features.

At Tech Orchard, we recommend conducting an annual health assessment of your mobility management platform to maximize the value of your investment. As we all know, the world of mobility and endpoint management changes at a rapid pace. Current solutions feature comprehensive digital workplace security, device-aware access management and an engaging employee experience that promotes productivity.

We also suggest reviewing your company’s Mobile Device Usage Policies (MDUP) as part of your annual health assessment. Your MDUP streamlines onboarding and allows management to set expectations among all employees and enforce policies consistently. Whether your business utilizes company-owned devices, bring-your-own devices or a hybrid model, an MDUP is essential for protecting your employees, your data and your organization.

At Tech Orchard, we provide annual health assessments and develop tailored MDUPs for our clients year-round. If your company is not currently planning to conduct an annual device management and policy review, I recommend you put it on your to-do list for the new year.
