You are a savvy business owner and you know by now that you should have a program for mobile devices. What once was just a mobile phone is now a hand-held computer, and almost everyone has one and uses it all the time. So okay, your website is now phone and tablet friendly, and that’s the good news and the bad news. The good news is that now you can be open for business 24/7. And—that’s also the bad news. Now a good business owner needs to know that there is coverage for the all-hours when quote requests or product questions come to the website. You will have those employees who revel in the chance to monitor at odd hours, but this also brings up the serious question of security. Remember—your employees don’t have the firewall or filtering they would have if they were inside the workplace and on the business network. What can come into your network from when your employees were out and about last night? Aptica LLC has security programs that you can use to protect yourself. You should be able to monitor any line that is ostensibly supposed to be used just for business and to have certain restrictions. Aptica partners with Citrix to manage mobile devices, and through Citrix we can do a remote wipe of any device that gets lost or stolen. Mobile device management is just a part of the services Aptica LLC can offer you. Invest in technology that can be used appropriately. Call me for more details 260 243-5100, ext. 2001.
