Enterprises are embracing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and a multi-device (desk phone, laptop, smartphone, tablet) communications strategy. But this can mean some serious headaches when you start to consider the security issues.
What happens if you have employees joining and leaving the company? Can you make sure that the applications and sensitive data stay secure and can be wiped from the machine? And with all the different networks that these mobile devices are using, can you take precautions to make sure communications are not intercepted or expose your core network to attacks?
One of the strengths of CounterPath’s solutions is that we provide high-level security and encryption, Mobile Device Management (MDM), Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) within our enterprise unified communications solutions. Users have a simple-to-install and high-quality communications experience, but behind the scenes, signaling and media is secure. And IT Managers can use MDM and EMM vendors to manage security for a BYOD strategy.
We achieve security by constantly hardening our own clients and servers to possible threats. But we also work extensively with partners. For example, we have worked Good Technology to provide Bria smartphone and tablet clients that work within their MDM and EMM platforms. Enterprise users who have Good can simple download the Bria for Good client from the Google Play or iTunes stores.
Similarly, we work with session border controller manufacturers like Oracle to leverage tunneling technology that makes the core network more secure. Above, Todd Carothers provides an overview of our industry-leading security approach.
