The business landscape is eagerly embracing BYOD-led work culture to enhance productivity, ensure seamless interoperability, and improve employee convenience.

Smartphones are a big part of this shift, but the growing proliferation of mobile devices within the enterprise ecosystem is also giving rise to multiple device management and security challenges. Moreover, most mobile users don’t install adequate security measures on their devices or use jailbroken/rooted devices, leaving enterprises extremely vulnerable to security risks.

It is to address this massive need-gap and empower organisations to securely manage mobile devices, Seqrite, a specialist provider of endpoint security, network security and data protection solutions, has launched its Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) portfolio. As part of the development, Seqrite has introduced two cloud-based solutions, MobiSMART and mSuite, which have been designed to provide comprehensive control over mobile devices accessing their network and data.

With the launch of MobiSMART and mSuite, Seqrite reaffirms its commitment to securely manage multiple entry points and data within the enterprise network. Seqrite is the enterprise arm of Quick Heal Technologies, one of the leading providers of IT security solutions to consumers, businesses and Government.

Speaking on the latest launch, Sanjay Katkar, Joint Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer, Quick Heal Technologies, said, “Mobiles are a big part of how businesses operate today, but they are also the biggest area of concern to enterprise security. Professionals are sending, receiving, and storing emails and privileged business information on their mobile devices without implementing adequate security measures. Our Enterprise Mobility Management portfolio has been launched to address this particular need-gap and protect BYOD workplaces from the risk of data breaches and security threats. Through our comprehensive portfolio of mobility management solutions, we aim to empower organisations avail the benefits of the BYOD approach without compromising their larger security posture.”

Seqrite MobiSMART: A centrally managed and secure mobile workspace

A centrally managed workspace for enterprise productivity, Seqrite MobiSMART provides separation of corporate and personal data to manage enterprise applications and data on mobile devices. It integrates with Enterprise Product Information Management (PIM) policy and prohibits business users from copy/pasting, screen capturing, or syncing secure files and information within the workspace which employs FIPS-certified AES 256-bit encryption. It also enforces strict single/multi-factor authentication to access enterprise data while providing a compelling work environment to BYOD end-users, with all the access and features they need to be productive.

Seqrite mSuite: A robust solution for seamless mobility management

Seqrite mSuite is a mobile device and app management solution which empowers organisations to manage the usage of connected mobile devices by defining device policies and restrictions. Its virtual fencing feature allows organisations to define digital boundaries and apply policies and restrictions on devices by creating Wi-Fi, Geo-location, and Time fences.

Additionally, Seqrite EMM enables IT teams to remotely schedule a security scan on enrolled devices to identify risks and infections with the best-in-class anti-malware capabilities. Such comprehensive overview into mobile device usage allows organisations to identify how their employees use company-issued devices, track their productivity on mobile during office hours, and control app/user access to enterprise networks and data.
