There has been a considerable increase in the number of remote employees in corporate sector in the last few years. This is mainly because of the availability of mobile computing devices that allows a person to work from anywhere, any time. But sometimes, these devices pose a security threat to the companies as some sensitive information is stored in them and they are taken outside the company.
Looking to help companies with this problem, Verizon (News - Alert) has recently expanded its Enterprise Mobility- as –a- Service solution. This offering now provides complete support to administer numerous applications, access options and devices, the company has stated.
Since remote working is a new phenomenon everywhere in the world, this new device will be available in almost all the major technological hubs of the world, including in Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas. The offering will be armed with features like local billing, currency and support options, just to make the transition easier.
The new offering is available by subscription and it saves money for users as they can pay for it on a per-user basis, the company has stated.
“Until now, companies have had to cobble together the essential requirements to employ effective enterprise mobility policies and programs,” said Bill Versen, director of mobility solutions for Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “With Enterprise Mobility as a Service, Verizon has created one of the most comprehensive and capable solutions to put enterprise mobility to work on a global basis. Now, companies can leverage a single user-based management platform to outfit a global workforce to successfully navigate the changing business landscape for greater productivity.”
Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice approved the Verizon purchase of spectrum from Comcast (News - Alert), Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks. The approval is subject to a revision of the agency cross marketing agreements the firms originally were looking forward to.
