Mobile Device Management
Mobile devices are quickly becoming the primary personal communications and computing platform for business. However, they introduce cost, risk, and usability challenges that traditional mobile device management strategies cannot address. IPOptions approach is to simplify the problem for IT, finance, and end-users by moving smartphone data to the enterprise cloud.

IPOptions Advanced Mobile Device Management Solutions Addresses the Unique Challenges of Mobile Enterprises such as
Multiple platforms, including iOS and Android™
High mobile support costs
Mobile security issues
Kicking off a mobile apps strategy
Large international roaming bills
Unsecured employee-owned phones and tablets
Users carry your enterprise in their pocket. They use their smartphones and tablets to access the corporate network, business applications, and your organization’s crown jewels: your enterprise data. That’s risky. What if they log into your network over an insecure network? Or lose their device? Or download next year’s strategic plan … and then leave the company? What’s required is a mobile device manager that is also secure.
Why do I need to manage wireless devices?
For many years businesses have been implementing wireless technology, some of these implementations have been merely around putting in an individual wireless device or access point to cater for guest access and some corporate access whilst other implementations have been around implementing a single controllable wireless solution throughout a LAN / WAN.
We have seen a shift recently with access points now including hardware encryption modules, large amounts of memory and even multi-core CPUs, in fact the access points have become powerful enough to function as a management platform and an access point at the same time which has led to clustered access points that are quickly deployable but nonetheless secure and resilient ensuring that smaller deployments become cost effective and easier to manage whilst larger deployments can take advantage of faster hardware and advantages of a controller based solution.
