Business Mobile Security

ARO has been helping UK customers to securely manage mobile fleets for 25+ years, minimising the costs and risks of loss, theft and cyber attacks without compromising user experience.

A strategic approach to mobile security risks

With so many remote and hybrid users working from home and on unsecure public Wi-Fi networks or in transit, mobile security management is becoming harder, more complex and more tightly regulated. And it’s not just data at risk of theft or loss – it’s mobile devices themselves.

Comprehensive mobile security policies and solutions are necessary to all portable devices, the information stored on and transmitted between them.

How to enhance mobile security

Tap into 25+ years of endpoint security and management expertise.

ARO has been supporting customers with both software and training in best practices for mobile security for more than 25 years, offering both technical support and practical advice for both users and administrators. No matter how complex your mobile estate is, ARO can manage and secure your mobile devices and apps with tools that keep your networks fast and your users secure.

We recommend and implement mobile security technologies – such as data protection and separation, antivirus, encryption, remote wipes, and device tracking – to ensure compliance and minimise the threats of data loss or cyber attack without negatively impacting user experience or productivity.

Just as importantly, we help you to establish mobile security awareness among users and enforce clear policies around BYOD, password hygiene and use of unsecure networks such as public Wi-Fi.

Business mobile security involves implementing measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data on mobile devices used within an organisation. ARO uses strategies and technologies – such as data protection and separation, antivirus, encryption, remote wipes, and device tracking – to protect sensitive information, prevent unauthorised access, and mitigate potential threats or vulnerabilities that may arise from the use of mobile devices.

One of the most common security risks associated with mobile devices is the potential for unauthorised access or data breaches. This can occur through various reasons, such as lost or stolen devices, malware or malicious apps, insecure Wi-Fi connections, and phishing attacks.

The most obvious way to secure company phones is to invest in a comprehensive mobile security solution. Fortunately, ARO has long-standing partnerships with Gartner Magic Quadrant device management leaders and offers mobile security technologies such as data protection and separation, antivirus, encryption, remote wipes, and device tracking.

If not properly managed, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) can pose major security challenges. Allowing employees to use personal devices for work introduces potential risks, such as unsecured devices, outdated software, and a lack of control over device configurations. However, with proper security measures like device encryption, containerisation, and the use of Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, organisations can minimise/stop the security threats associated with BYOD and maintain a balance between both employee flexibility and data protection.

MDM solutions offer a range of security features that enable organisations to secure, monitor, manage, and enforce policies on employees’ mobile devices.
