Beefing up device security with BES12

Posted by Juliette Ollagnier on Wed, Sep 16, 2015

Mobile devices are widely adopted in the world of business today. Moreover, they have taken on mission-critical status for most enterprises. 

According to John S Chen, CEO at BlackBerry, and based on result of a survey of 800 CIOs and risk and compliance leaders*, “the number of data breaches caused by mobile devices had significantly increased in the past years. Mobile device is already the weakest link in the security framework“.

“Despite the admitted breaches, organizations continue to miscalculate or underestimate the risk caused by mobile. In other worlds: organizations, even those that are normally very conscientious about security, are doing very little when it comes to mobile security” explains John S Chen.*

Keeping devices secure and ensuring they are running optimally at all times is a necessity.  For this reason, advanced monitoring for enterprise mobility is emerging as an integral service. In addition to reducing troubleshooting times and warding off issues before they are problematic, monitoring increasingly plays a key part in the security makeup of an organization’s EMM strategy.

BlackBerry and GSX organize a joint webinar on the following topic “Is device security keeping you up at night?”

Join this webinar to understand the reasons why a monitoring service like GSX Monitor & Analyzer, coupled with your BES deployment, will enable you to readily monitor an array of different devices and systems. Learn how improved visibility and enhanced reporting will aid IT Admins to be alerted to problematic behaviors or resource outages across the various mobile and messaging platforms that an enterprise runs. 

You will have a better understanding of how you can better monitor, manage and control the security of the mobile devices as part of your infrastructure environment, including how to:  

  • Assess the Quality of Service of your Mobile environment from an end-user perspective
  • Create custom alerts for availability and performance to enable proactive incident management
  • Reduce troubleshooting times and address issues before they are problematic 
  • Pinpoint devices that are non-compliant with company policies
  • Prevent users from installing unauthorized applications
  • Report on devices being wiped
  • And More
