mobile device security

With the BBC reporting that 314 phones are stolen every day in London alone, it’s important to secure the data that’s stored on them. Parallels Mobile Device Management allows you to remotely enforce strong password policies on your Android and iOS devices, remotely wipe all sensitive data from them, or remotely lock them via SMS.

Enforce Strong Mobile Device Password Policies

A strong password policy can be enforced to all devices through Parallels Mobile Device Management. This saves you from having to apply these policies manually, which would be very time-consuming if you have many devices.

Parallels Mobile Device Management allows you to set the minimum password length and the time lapse before a device auto-locks.

With Parallels Mobile Device Management, you can also set the maximum number of failed password attempts before Parallels Mobile Device Management automatically resets the device back to its factory settings.

Lock Mobile Devices Remotely

Should you lose or misplace a device, Parallels Mobile Device Manager lets you change the password and lock the device from the online dashboard, safeguarding all of the data on the device until you can retrieve it.

Locking the device is as simple as selecting it from the list of devices, pressing the lock button and then specifying the password that you want to enforce.

Safeguard your corporate data even if the device isn't connected to the internet by remotely locking it via SMS.

Wipe Mobile Devices Remotely

If your mobile device has been lost or stolen, it’s imperative to wipe all the data off it. With a couple of mouse clicks, Parallels Mobile Device Management will remotely wipe all the data from the phone’s internal memory and reset the device back to its factory default settings.

The command is sent in an SMS as well to ensure that your mobile device is wiped immediately.

By wiping the device, you prevent your company's valuable information from falling into the wrong hands.

Monitor For Malware And Inappropriate Apps

When you deploy mobile devices to your workforce, inevitably your employees will want to install apps.

With Parallels Mobile Device Management, you can review the apps that are installed on their devices from a single screen and remove inappropriate apps easily. You can also monitor rogue apps installed from unofficial sources.

Parallels Mobile Device Management allows you to be aware of any suspicious looking apps and help you to avoid these becoming a big issue. With a single click, you can remove apps that affect your employees' productivity and drain your data plans.
