Whether you are using Mobile Device Management in the home or at the office, it’s more than likely that your Android device has passwords, photos or other personal and corporate data stored on it. At the very least, if you have a data plan or use WiFi, your email account is probably always logged in. Some people even keep their credit card or PayPal details on their mobile phone. Smartphone security shouldn’t be overlooked.
A new feature of 2X MDM is the ability to remote wipe mobile devices with an SMS. This allows you to erase all the data from your lost mobile device from the comfort of your own home or office, including any data on the attached SD cards. It’s a particularly handy feature because it means that to remote wipe a mobile device, you don’t need it to be connected to the internet. As long as your phone is in GSM range (which for most of us is all the time), you can remote wipe it.
Millions of mobile phones go missing every single year, whether lost by the user or stolen. You can’t really afford to let that corporate and personal data fall in to the wrong hands. 2X MDM also allows you to remote lock Android devices in order to keep the data secure until a device can be located on the 2X MDM dashboard and recovered. When the device is unrecoverable, you can still protect yourself by being able to remote wipe your mobile.
