Re: Control is the key...

It is very scary phones should be treated just like laptops were before they can provide employees with access to proprietary information and usage and access should always be monitored. Not having the ability to remotely access a phone is a critical security error for companies.

Re: Control is the key...
A lot of the antivirus software for mobile apps now has a Killswitch option where you can wipe your phone clean if it's stolen or lost. The one I used recently I love me to login on the website and wipe the phone if needed . This sounds like a good option for enterprises whose employees use smart phones for business . Enabling a remote administrator to wipe the phone clean offers maximum protection .
