App security

Secure the entire app management process. Distribute store and custom-built applications to designated users, configure app settings and permissions, test and update apps, or remove apps, all through a secure channel. Additionally, get holistic workspace management with an integrated ecosystem of apps powered by Zoho.

Data security

Curb the sharing of distributed content, app data, and contacts through Bluetooth, NFC, Wi-Fi Direct, USBs, clipboard, and screenshots. Also prevent backups of corporate data to third-party cloud services. Ensure maximum security for data at rest, in use, and in transit by applying data loss prevention policies.

Network access security

Secure connections originating from devices by allowing connections only from trusted networks or by encrypting connections from untrusted networks. Distribute client certificates to support the identity or authentication process on which Wi-Fi, VPN, Zero Trust, and other services rely.

BYOD security

Separate corporate data by containerizing it. Apply security policies to these containers, including restrictions on data sharing. Ensure maximum data security by managing corporate apps, even on personal devices that are not brought under the BYOD umbrella.

Configuring devices as kiosks

Provide access to a predetermined app or set of apps, websites, content, and device functions. Toggle devices in and out of kiosk mode based on predefined conditions. Gain additional flexibility by choosing to display important settings and by deploying a browser with restrictions.

Rugged and IoT device management

Secure nontraditional devices from the same console as traditional devices. Apply configurations customized by original equipment manufacturers for rugged and purpose-built devices. Update OSs, securely troubleshoot, and restrict access to just the intended apps and content.

MDM 101: The basics of Mobile Security Management (MSM) explained

  • 1. What is mobile security management (MSM)?

    Mobile security management ensures that all mobile endpoints within an organization are fully protected from security threats. This involves enforcing security policies, configurations, and restrictions on the smartphones, tablets, and laptops used by the organization's workforce, effectively protecting corporate data when it is at rest, in use, and in transit.

  • 2. Why is mobile device security management important?

    Traditionally, employees accomplished tasks on local workstations like desktops that did not require corporate data to leave the organization's secure internal network. Now, remote work has become the new normal, resulting in a surge in the use of mobile devices for work. Distributed workforces access corporate resources on their mobile devices and over the internet, causing business-sensitive data to leave organizations' internal networks.

  • This increases the chances of corporate data being leaked, stolen, or manipulated by cybercriminals looking to leverage any security vulnerability to their benefit. One successful data breach can make an organization become noncompliant with international privacy and security standards, resulting in hefty fines and irreparable damage to its reputation. Therefore, securing these distributed mobile endpoints has become a task of paramount importance for IT admins.

  • 3. What are the key requirements a mobile security management (MSM) tool should fulfill?

    When evaluating a mobile security management tool, make sure it secures all three states of enterprise data:

    • Data at rest: Ensure corporate data on devices is well-protected from data leaks and security threats by separating it from users' personal data, enforcing encryption standards, and applying restrictions on data sharing.
    • Data in use: Facilitate secure access to corporate data and attachments through trusted apps and enforce data loss prevention (DLP) policies.
    • Data in transit: Enable secure communication between devices and the corporate network.
  • 4. How can organizations benefit from mobile security management (MSM)?

    On work devices, comprehensive mobile security management can ensure the three major aspects of data security: confidentiality, integrity, and availability.

    • Confidentiality: Apply security restrictions, block malicious apps and content, and create a secure virtual container to host corporate data. Enforce DLP policies on devices to ensure the data within the devices is inaccessible to unauthorized users, thereby preventing data leaks.
    • Integrity: Enforce the use of secure protocols and data encryption standards to maintain the integrity of corporate data in transit.
    • Availability: Allow required corporate apps and content to be shared with devices on time and ensure secure access for users.
  • 5. How does a mobile device security management tool work?

    Mobile security management software helps protect enterprise mobile devices from security threats by allowing IT admins to enforce:

    • Proactive measures: Through mobile security management, admins can ensure devices are ready to safely handle corporate data by enforcing mandatory passcode policies, which effectively build the first line of defense on devices. Admins can also enforce secure communication protocols, control app permissions, block access to malicious apps and content, and prevent corporate data from being automatically backed up to cloud services or shared with other apps on the device.
    • Reactive measures: Mobile security management tools can detect noncompliant devices and prevent them from accessing the corporate network. Admins can schedule, automate, or delay device OS updates and can remotely troubleshoot devices when they face technical issues. If a device is lost, stolen, or removed from specific geographic boundaries, mobile device security management software can track it and wipe the corporate data on it.
  • 6. How can you ensure the security of corporate data on employee-owned mobile devices?

    In a BYOD environment, separating the corporate workspace from users' personal data on user-owned devices through containerization will keep corporate data secure while ensuring the privacy of users' personal data. All corporate data and apps will be hosted within a virtual container on the device that the admin can monitor, manage, and secure. This container can also be exclusively wiped if the employee leaves the organization or if the device is lost or stolen, thus ensuring business-sensitive information is kept confidential.
