Sophos is attempting to simplify security arrangements for businesses introducing BYOD policies.
Mobile Control 2.5 is designed to automatically assign new technologies to existing groups with associated privileges and access. The software also notifies users of compliance issues and suggests how they can be rectified without intervention from support staff.
“This rapid momentum in our mobile business is evidence that it is no longer enough for businesses to just control their own devices. They must now make sure that all devices, regardless of whether they are corporate or personal, are protected and secured and meet the corporation’s security standards,” says Sophos vice president Matthias Pankert.
