BYOD

Empower your mobile workforce!

Whether your organization is seeking to increase productivity, foster innovation, or improve employee satisfaction, there are numerous considerations when planning a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy. IT departments must strike a balance between providing employees the freedom and ease-of-use they expect while tightly managing corporate security.  You need a unified, end-to-end solution that supports your mobile enablement strategy now and in the future. We manage mobile devices from the cloud for you, so you don’t have to. We leverage Cisco Cloud to:

Centrally Manage Mobile Devices, Macs, and PCs

Unify management and control of thousands of iOS, Android, Mac, and PC devices in our secure, browser-based dashboard.

Remotely Deploy Software and Apps

The Cloud System Manager (CSM) allows us to centrally manage applications on your iOS, Android, Mac, and PC devices. CSM integrates with Apple and Google App Stores, and Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) for easy deployment and maintenance of free, paid, or Enterprise apps. For Macs and PCs, deploy MSI and PKG files right from the dashboard.

Enforce Restrictions & Deploy Network Settings

Enforce policies across mobile devices administered by our organization. Protect devices and their data, control their usage with fine-grained policies, and restrict access to features such as the app store, gaming, and content. Use selective wipe to remove enterprise data from lost or stolen devices. CSM also makes it easy to define and deploy network settings like wireless connectivity, security settings, and remote VPN access to all your managed devices at once.

Asset and Inventory Management

Locate and track laptops and mobile devices anywhere in the world. CSM provides built-in software inventory management, simplifying software license management even in multiplatform environments. Search and view details of all software and apps installed on your managed devices.

Enterprise Connectivity

Deploy wireless configuration, VPN, and Exchange email settings to mobile devices from the dashboard. Onboarding of new devices is simplified by configuring SSID security and authentication settings, including certificates, in a centralized portal. ActiveSync email settings such as domain, encryption, and stored mail history duration can also be synchronized across managed devices. Streamline client VPN setup by pre-configuring server information, tunneling protocols, and encryption settings right from Systems Manager.

Rapidly Provision Devices

Cloud management enables efficient device enrollment, facilitating 1:1 and BYOD initiatives. Download the app from the Apple or Google App Stores to enroll a device, or streamline adoption by using CSM Sentry to ensure mobile devices are enrolled in MDM before joining your wireless network. Alternatively, send SMS or email enrollment invitations straight from the dashboard to mobile devices. CSM is deployed on Macs and PCs via a lightweight installer. Deploy over the network using Active Directory’s GPO to rapidly enroll all the devices in your Windows domain networks.

Remote Troubleshooting & Live Tools

Manage common requests for devices, like remotely clearing a passcode or even erasing data in the event it’s compromised. Start remote desktop, take a screenshot, and reboot or shutdown Macs and PCs. Use CSM to selectively wipe a device, removing apps, connectivity, and security settings, but keeping the device enrolled in Systems Manager. Automatically monitor devices 24×7 via the cloud. Set email alerts to immediately notify administrators of device outage, unauthorized software or app installation, or removal the CSM profile.
