Protecting Your Digital Identity


Digital or Online Identity applies to everybody, once you navigate and use the Internet.  It’s basically data that uniquely describes an individual or entity (e.g. company) and this data holds information such as relationships, services, images, resumes, client details, etc.  All that information is very useful for the people who need to access this in order to conduct business or communicate with you, but once this gets into the wrong hands it can cause severe problems.  Whether you are reading this as a company or individual, navigating on the internet needs to done with caution and there are some basic guide lines that should be considered.   It might be common sense, but unfortunately not all Internet users consider this when surfing the cyber waves.

There are people who thrive on hacking into systems for various reasons, but many times they don’t consider the impact this might have on the individual or the business.  At the same time, these hackers often “break” into system because they can and because the systems that penetrate weaker security measures implemented.  Some hackers may even conducts these attacks simply because they like a username in Twitter, as Mat Honan found out the hard way.

Mobile Device Management


In short, Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a software solutions that allows for the management of mobile devices, primarily aimed at mobile phones and iPad/tablets – irrespectively of mobile operator/carrier.  It’s an ideal tool to be deployed within organisations that supports either BYOD or company owned device management.

MDM solutions attempts to secure, monitor, manage and support mobile devices deployed, and that have been granted access to the corporate infrastructure such as mail.  Devices can be added manually, user initiated requests and/or using over the air technology – where the MDM solution sends an invitation to a known device to join the MDM infrastructure.

Once an MDM solution is deployed within an organisation, it can assist reduce support costs and also manage business risks by enabling security features, and enables corporate IT departments to manage the many mobile devices used across the enterprise.  The core objective of any MDM solution is the central remote management, where devices can be secured over the air and wiped if lost/stolen.

With the increase of BYOD and company owned initiatives. it’s important that our clients have access to the best products and solutions to assist with.  As a result, HiberniaEvros has decided to enter this market, not with our own device, but with a MDM (mobile device management) solution from Zenprise – a world leader in addressing the challenges brought about by the BYOD and company owned concepts.

Zenprise and BYOD


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.

Core Zenprise MDM Features

  • Platform iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, and Symbian
  • Architecture the entire device can be managed
  • Security device-levels, secure “tunnels” for apps to communicate
  • App sources enterprise deploys from packages or users can download from public stores – if allowed
  • App stores apps can be pushed according to role
  • Provisioning invite users by sending them a link
  • MDM capabilities password policy, two factor authentication, auto wipe, block jailbroken devices, remote wipe, set network access profiles

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.

Contact us to talk directly to talk to one of our specialists.  Alternatively, we can set-up a presentation of the Zenprise products.
