The basics of Zenprise
The Zenprise MDM solution is a device management platform that allows the administrator to manage the various devices deployed and that access corporate information. The capabilities of the platform allows IT organisations to manage the devices; device provisioning, lock ‘n wipe, enforce security policies and application deployment. Furthermore, the Zenprise solution supports all major platforms such as iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, and Windows Mobile. It’s an enterprise end-to-end solution, assisting IT organisations to manage and safeguard access to corporate data.
Deploying the Zenprise solution within your organisation will assist your approach and strategy embracing the BYOD initiative, and allowing personal and corporate-owned mobile devices to access sensitive corporate data securely. All this, while maintain compliance with your security policies, corporate directives, local legislation and data privacy.
Zenprise also includes an application management features that will aid you in securing what applications can be used on the managed devices, securely of course. On top of that, you can push these applications out to “your” managed fleet of devices ensuring that these applications are fully up-to-date. You can even blacklist and whitelist application, thereby enabling a corporate application store.

Zenprise can support your BYOD strategy
Zenprise enables and enhances the BYOD initiative, by supporting multiple platforms, thereby allowing more devices (and employees) to add their device and get access to corporate data. Despite this openness, it is still important that devices are secured consistently across all devices, and organisations need to tweak the implementation to meet their requirements.
Employees, who sign up to and have their devices added to the Zenprise MDM solution, must surrender some control of their device. This has to be clearly documented and communicated with the employee, and the reason for this control is to secure the environment. The level of control is to be agreed within the organisation, and employees signs up. If employees are happy with this trade-off, they can always opt out, but they will not be able to get e.g. corporate mail delivered to their device. This element is more relevant to the BYOD approach. If it’s a pure corporate solution, where all devices are owned and managed by the organisation, then this becomes much easier.
