The use of mobile devices (laptops, phones, tablets ...) in the business environment is opening up an immense range of advantages regarding the mobility and productivity of workers. However, at the same time, it increases the risk of suffering security incidents given the control limitations that the IT department has regarding these devices, and even more so if the organization opts for a philosophy that everyone uses their personal device to access information. corporate With these types of philosophies, companies save investment costs in new equipment, but lose visibility on who, how, and when accesses company data.
The loss or theft of mobile devices and even the loss of employees in the organization, therefore entails a risk in the security of the information, giving rise to the leakage of confidential data and even the theft of the identity of the user of the device.
How the Microsoft cloud and Softeng help you protect your devices?
Microsoft offers several tools to control access to corporate information from mobile devices. In this way, we will be able to admit (or deny) access to corporate data from certain devices and even establish more demanding requirements to allow access to certain data, in addition to being able to specify which applications are authorized to access the organization's data. These are the tools for the protection of mobile devices that Microsoft offers us:
- Microsoft Intune: Helps you protect data that may be stored on computers and mobile devices. You can control access, selectively delete data from mobile devices, and control which apps store and share personal data. In addition, Intune helps you efficiently manage the deployment of critical updates for all your teams.
- Microsoft Defender for Endpoint: It is a service that helps companies protect their organization's devices from security breaches, as well as in case of intrusion, automatically detect it and react immediately.

Device protection and compliance
Protecting the devices of your organization to avoid security breaches is one of the measures that helps to comply with the new general data protection regulation (RGPD). In this sense, both Microsoft Intune and Windows 10 Enterprise provide capabilities to safeguard the information stored on the device and to protect the identity of the user who uses it, thus helping companies comply with the new regulation.
