Technology is changing the way mobile device management works. CanopyTM, an enterprise connectivity solution from Banyan Hills Technologies, offers remote management and monitoring of Android as well as Apple iOS phones, tablets, desktop computers and more.
For IT managers around the world, these can be stressful times. Mobile devices contain critical business data including email, access to secure servers, personal employee info and more. But, unlike a desktop PC, they lack the physical security of being maintained on campus. A lost or stolen phone, tablet or laptop can be a serious security risk.
How do you tame this wild west of mobile devices?
Mobile device management, or MDM for short, gives IT managers a single, consolidated overview of their mobile device landscape.
Through a dashboard, it's possible to see the status of all devices operating within an organization. It helps managers ensure all devices have the latest operating system and other software installed, and it can lock down devices to prevent users from installing any unwanted, untested or unvetted 3rd-party apps or software.
The Mobile Device Management module available through Canopy provides IT administrators with the ability to set and enforce policies governing the use of both iOS and Android smartphones, tablet computers, laptops and other devices.
Canopy software can prevent unapproved third-party apps from being installed on iOS and Android devices. In addition, it can remove apps and even lock down an iOS or Android device that’s been reported stolen or lost.
Install apps on a remote device that’s out in the field. Also, push out software updates when needed. Have a fleet of tablets that need updating? Canopy can schedule it for you.
Have other devices or systems that need monitoring? Canopy can feed real-time data to a dashboard that will provide automation, data analysis and cost reduction capabilities.
Canopy supports the installation, modification, and removal of apps of both public and enterprise stores. In addition, it provides IT admins with the ability to keep operating systems up to date.
In many cases, devices can be enrolled with a 'zero touch' process, meaning the device enters the MDM program as soon as it's turned on.
Canopy supports mobile device management for both Apple iOS and Android devices.
