Five Ways to Maximize Employee Mobile Devices

How EnstepSync Can Help Your Business:

Virtually every employee today has a smart phone. Many also have tablets, such as iPads and Android devices. Most businesses are underutilizing these devices, because they belong to the employee in most cases.

They are BYOD, “bring your own device,” as they say. This is a mistake. Your hyper connected employees will be glued to their mobile devices, whether you want them to or not.

Savvy business owners and executives have realized the secret to higher employee productivity is embracing mobility and the BYOD trend. Find ways to help your staff work more, work smarter, and serve your clients better.

The key is to empower the mobile experience of your staff, without compromising security and control of your corporate data. Business-class file sync services, like EnstepSync, can give you the best of both worlds: you can allow your corporate data to be synced to employee mobile devices, without giving up control of your corporate data.

Here’s how:

1. Sync to smartphones

EnstepSync allows employees to sync their critical work files between their desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and the cloud. Your staff becomes more nimble and productive when they have their files at their fingertips, no matter where they go. Whether it is iOS, Android, or Windows Phone, EnstepSync keeps users connected on the go

2. Empower them with tablets

Tablet users today are usually your cutting edge staffers. More and more, everyday computing tasks once performed on laptops are now being done on iPads and Android tablets. Tablets are great for field-based staff, often sales professionals. Whether your staff is visiting a client or working a tradeshows, tablets are fantastic for demos, show and tell, and visual content to share with prospects and clients. Growth oriented companies should encourage tablet use and help users leverage all of their files and corporate data, securely from their tablets.

3. Sync your file server

Mobile devices are the lifeline for remote employees. But it is easy to feel cut off from HQ if all the content, files, and data you need is stuck back on the corporate file server.  EnstepSync allows you to cloud connect your file server and in turn sync the content to mobile users and other remote computers. On the go professionals are in sync with HQ and better able to serve clients and prospects in the field.

4. Don’t lose control

Leveraging employee mobile devices is not without risks. Data privacy and security has always been a balancing act. With BYOD resources, it is no different. But with EnstepSync, you can connect employees with corporate data without losing control. Business-class services allow you to implement fine grained controls on employee sync and share behavior. For instance, you could allow employees to sync to their iPhone and iPad, but not a remote Windows or Mac device. You may also evolve your security policy over time, either loosening or strengthening your policies depending on the circumstances. The choice is yours.

5. Be ready when disaster strikes

No matter what security policies you implement, you need to be ready for when disasters strike. Everyday disasters are all too common. Lost or stolen smartphones are common. With EnstepSync you can remotely wipe corporate data off of a lost device. In more serious situations, such as an employee termination, you are also ready. Remote wipe actions can be taken on a whole user account and across devices that were previously synced, eliminating corporate data from smartphones, tablets, and remote computers.

Balancing security and convenience is a necessary choice in today’s workplace. Fortunately, EnstepSync helps business owners and executives ride the mobility wave, while safeguarding corporate data.
