As the workforce becomes more mobile and the enterprise bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies gain dominance, there is a need for centrally managed corporate mobile security and usage policies for global companies as the security threats are growing, said Sicap.

According to International Data Corporation (IDC), more than 70 per cent of the US workforce is expected to be working from a mobile location by 2020, which emphasises the need for an increased mobile security management system globally.

The caompany said, “Sicap’s EMM solution has validated android for Work and Apple iOS mobile device management (MDM) capabilities. The device management framework provides all the mobility and security management functionalities that enterprises require for managing the devices, applications and service usage of their employees, from software installation, updates, configuration and uninstallation, and even remote lock-up and data wipe, in case of theft or loss.”

Android for work can separate a mobile phone into two distinct profiles, one for personal use and another for work, which can be managed by the employee’s IT department via Sicap’s EMM solution. For Apple mobile devices, an iOS operating system compatible management framework is included, through which Sicap’s EMM solution aims to provide the device management capabilities to the enterprise IT departments, explained the company.

Commenting on the new EMM solution, Markus Doetsch, CEO of Sicap, stated that ti focuses on increasing employee productivity and saving facility costs.
