Secure Mobile Service from Imerja released
24th June 2010
Details of Imerja's new managed mobile service has been publicly released this week, coverage below. For more information about Imerja's managed mobile services and the broader m|four managed services portfolio, feel free to contact us.
Two North West digital companies have collaborated on a bespoke mobile application to secure corporate smart phones.
“We all know how important it is to secure our computers and laptops, but as the use of smartphones in a business environment becomes the norm, it is imperative this security extends to every mobile device used to access corporate data,” said Ian Jackson, managing director of Imerja.
The new managed service looks to protect phones against unauthorised use if they’re lost or stolen. The software provides data encryption and secure connectivity. Ravensoft’s role is then to develop business applications that can take advantage of this added security:
“Once a smartphone has been secured, it has the potential to then be a valuable business tool. For example, a sales person could use it to remotely access a customer database on the move or a lone worker could use it to alert co-workers to their location,” explained Chris Byrne, managing director of Ravensoft.
“Mobile working becomes just that, allowing greater flexibility in the workplace while ensuring peace of mind for the company should the smartphone leave the owner’s possession. Once this level of security is achieved, we work in partnership with the customer to identify how a bespoke smartphone app might enhance the way employees work or improve business processes."
