While businesses work to streamline and secure mobility management for employees and protect valuable data, Tech Orchard continues to be a leader in addressing client demand for transitioning to the digital workspace. To help respond to emerging issues and ensure clients’ needs are covered, we’re proud to announce the addition of Damon Taylor to our team.
At Tech Orchard, we are no strangers to the digital workspace, a space that is constantly evolving. We continue to see businesses challenged with balancing employee needs for productivity and mobile collaboration with a secure environment that features the same ease-of-use expected from a consumer-like experience. Underscored by the expanding bring your own device (BYOD) culture, the current digital workspace points to a clear need for unified endpoint management (UEM).
Of all the day-to-day tasks of IT administrators, the process of imaging and configuring PCs has been one of the most time-intensive and mundane. Historically, companies either dedicated internal resources or paid third-party companies to handle this process, which resulted in long delays for the average user to receive a first-time or replacement laptop or desktop. With the Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft AutoPilot and VMware Workspace ONE, everything has changed. PC users can now experience what we get when we order and receive a new Apple or Android device.
For larger companies, an investment in data security and the ongoing management of policies and procedures around data usage may seem like a no-brainer. For small businesses, it may seem like an unnecessary expense. At Tech Orchard, we often hear small business owners imply that they “fly under the radar” of hackers and cyber criminals because of their company size. Unfortunately, recent data proves otherwise.
When it comes to secure mobility, users have been shouting Apple’s praises for years because its iOS has long had a reputation for being more secure than Android.

However, recent trends indicate that while iOS may still not be as susceptible to malware as Android, it is actually MORE susceptible to phishing attacks. Read on to learn more and arm yourself with tips to protect yourself, your business and your devices.
