The Great Reshuffle And Employee Device Management

The Great Reshuffle

The Great Reshuffle is used to describe the massive changes that have been happening in the workforce lately. With so many people quitting their jobs in search of more fulfilling roles, employers are starting to see flexibility as a highly valuable commodity. And after the pandemic ends, things will only get more competitive as employees begin to demand different pay and benefits packages (such as remote work) from their employers.

So what does all this mean for businesses? The increasing demand for benefits such as remote work or hybrid work (working a few days in the office and a few days remotely) increases the importance of employee device management; Which covers everything from hardware, software, and data security!

The Impact on Employee Device Management

Mobility is becoming the new norm and employees are using a variety of devices and platforms to get their work done. With an estimated 2.3 billion global mobile workers in 2021, it’s more important than ever for organisations to enable workforce mobility. This can seem like a daunting task, but with the right foundation, any organisation can get started quickly and easily.

Device management is essential for any organisation looking to enable mobility. It provides enhanced data security, as well as network security, improves employee productivity, and enables companies to keep their software and installed applications up-to-date; All while ensuring compliance with your regulations.

Managing a Secure Mobile Workforce

Employees are increasingly using their personal devices for work tasks, which can present a challenge for businesses trying to maintain security and compliance. Many mobile devices are not secure by default, and employees may not be aware of the risks of exposing company data to unauthorised access. To protect company data, businesses need a way to manage and secure all mobile devices used for work purposes.

Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a solution that enables companies to manage and secure all mobile devices used by their employees. MDM allows businesses to control what type of data can be accessed on each device, as well as remotely wiping or locking any device that is lost or stolen. MDM also helps ensure that devices meet company security requirements, such as password policies and encryption settings.

Most MDM solutions are installed on-premises, but there are also some cloud-based options available. MDM software can be integrated with help desk ticketing systems and app development tools, making it easy for IT departments to manage multiple types of mobile devices from a single console.

Microsoft Intune and Autopilot Solutions

Microsoft Intune is a way for IT to manage mobile and personal devices. It helps secure and monitor data access, and it’s common for employees to have multiple devices that use different platforms. With Intune, organisations can easily create policies for each platform (e.g. iOS/iPadOS, macOS, Windows, etc.).

Autopilot Solutions are ways that IT can protect business email accounts with on-premises Exchange servers. For example, an employee might use Surface Pro for work and an Android mobile device in their personal life.

With Intune, administrators can set up policies for each type of device or app configuration across all platforms. Additionally, they can see which devices are compliant with company policy and which ones require attention. This makes it easy to keep track of all the devices being used in the organisation – regardless of the platform – and quickly address any issues that may arise.
