  • What to look for in an SMB-ready mobile device

    SMBs simply do not have the cost and management resources to deploy, govern, and upgrade the fleet of mobile devices that are common in larger enterprises—smartphones, tablets, laptops, IoT devices, and countless others.

    However, mobile devices can increase worker productivity, improve employee communication, and ensure company data stays in the proper channels. SMBs shouldn’t miss out on these mobility benefits.

    Read this TechTarget e-guide to glean mobile device selection methods and best practices for SMBs, including:

    • What to look for in a mobile device for an SMB
    • Managing and deploying mobile devices in a small business
    • And picking rugged mobile devices vs. consumer-grade mobile devices.

  • Staying on top of your mobile device fleet 24/7

    Mobile devices are now an essential and integral part of the modern workplace enabling employees, contractors, and third-party vendors to access a wide variety of business-critical applications and data.

    But the use of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices has made it harder to track, manage, monitor, and maintain these devices, increasing their risk of getting lost or stolen.

    Learn how a 360° mobile device management (MDM) helps you stay on top of your mobile device fleet 24/7.
