In today’s highly mobile world, employees can work from just about anywhere using just about any device. Gone are the days when the vast majority of employees worked in corporate buildings using stationary desktop systems loaded with applications and operating systems installed by IT administrators.
For your IT organization, this shift to the era of remote and mobile workers brings new challenges. The top-down, prescriptive model of pushing one-size-fits-all images to employees using standard hardware configurations is no longer viable. You now need to think in terms of securing and mobilizing enterprise applications, and that means long-used processes and management tools have to change, including the requirement for all employees to use the same types of devices.
