With the popularity of mobile computing and the newer, high functioning mobile devices such as Android, Windows Mobile, and iPhone / iPad, Intec Solutions is introducing a new addition to its flat fee managed services model – Full Support for Mobile Devices. Intec can now monitor, manage, and backup your Android, Windows Mobile, or iOS mobile devices
Data stored on mobile devices is inherently less secure and more vulnerable to theft.
“Mobile devices, such as Apple’s iPad, iPhone and other “smart” phones and tablet-like devices are everywhere, and as a result vendors have flooded the market with apps that do literally everything” says Phil Stinson, the owner of Intec Solutions.
Data is often the crown’s jewels of a company so keeping it safe is of the utmost importance. Unlike traditional laptop computers, data leakage on mobile devices can be a profound risk. Once a user transfers sensitive data to any mobile device, that data can be compromised if the device is lost or stolen. Companies must keep in mind that most mobile devices were designed for consumer use, not business use. Companies must carefully evaluate their risk tolerance and then secure sensitive information before granting mobile device access privileges to users , since handheld mobile security policies often lag behind similar laptop security policies.
Phil Stinson agrees by saying, “Though many companies have policies in place that requires users to encrypt sensitive data on a laptop hard drive, few organizations encrypt data stored on smaller, mobile devices. Therefore, data stored on mobile devices is inherently less secure and more vulnerable to theft. If a mobile device is stolen, the ability to remotely disable the mobile device and restore it to factory defaults is imperative. That’s why we are so excited about offering this new service. It gives our client the additional peace of mind to enable their mobile work force with the tools they need.”
