Mobility has become essential for every business and having one goes without saying. However, with all the benefits it offers businesses and their employees, there are some key challenges associated with deploying and managing mobile device usage in the workspace.
A simple but effective solution to ensure that employees use the mobile devices provided to them responsibly. Unintended usage like the use of mobile data for personal stuff has to be kept in check.
Device deployment that is resilient to security breaches is critical. Integrating an enterprise-grade mobile security solution like Samsung Knox requires expert guidance and technology support.
Data plans can be costly and sub-optimal use can result in extra costs for the company. An affordable and easy to implement mobile-data management solution with custom control mechanisms is needed.
Maintaining the demanding requirements of enterprise security without compromising with an employee’s privacy or being intrusive. IT managers have to strike a balance between the two.
Control how a device switches between work and personal modes.
The benefits of mobile devices for the workforce are tremendous. They allow the employees to be productive from anywhere anytime. However, IT managers are concerned about ensuring optimal device usage. Besides, allowing employees to use work-related apps alongside their personal stuff on a single device can pose a serious security threat to an organization.
What if a mobile device can have a dual-persona mode that keeps work and personal data completely separate and can be toggled between by custom rules set by the IT managers? That is where our enterprise-grade Corporate Toggle solution powered by Samsung's award-winning Knox security platform comes into the picture.
Custom workflow triggers control the on device toggle.
Corporate Toggle works with Samsung's robust Knox container technology that completely separates all work-related data and apps from employee’s personal data and together provides a secure and managed work environment on mobile devices with efficient data usage policy. Switching between work and personal modes is done through a toggle that is controlled by custom trigger conditions like time, NFC, geolocation set up through the Corporate Toggle admin panel.
Corporate Toggle comes with a powerful web-based admin panel called the toggle manager that enables seamless implementation of the triggers and policies for devices at an organization, group or individual level. Toggle manager provides admins and IT teams easy access to user lists, enrolled devices, trigger settings and more. It also provides lightweight mobile device management features like whitelisting or blacklisting apps across devices. The setting up and configuration of every trigger is done through the toggle interface.
The toggle mobile library is implemented on the mobile devices and integrates with Samsung’s award-winning Knox container technology to keep work and personal data in separate containers and sets the rules for switching between the two.
Toggle can also work without Knox container in case you only need to manage WiFi accessibility settings, data service and whitelist/blacklist apps for your organization. This library maintains the device configuration as per data privileges set by the toggle manager.
Corporate Toggle at its core is about controlling when a device can switch between work and personal modes based on the trigger that is applied on the toggle at any point in time. A trigger is a condition that has to be fulfilled for the toggle to change its state from work to personal mode and vice versa. The toggle can be associated with one trigger at a time. The triggers are created and managed from the toggle manager.
Our solution enables the toggle manager to create and manage triggers based on a number of practically useful conditions.
Lock a device in work mode when a user is in a certain location or radius. Switching to personal mode would only be possible outside that area. Geolocation based toggle controls are easy to implement through the toggle manager.
Control the toggle based on predefined time intervals like compulsory work mode during office hours, meetings, etc.
Control toggle state based on whether it is paired with a certain NFC or Bluetooth enabled device.
For eg:- switching a device to work mode using a tap on an NFC tag.
Every business has unique needs for efficient device usage management. Although the above trigger conditions can cover a variety of use cases, tailoring these trigger mechanisms or developing custom ones as per a business's’ workflow is important. Say an activity based trigger like locking a taxi driver’s device in work mode when he is driving.
Corporate Toggle offers robust trigger customization options to optimize the toggle and trigger implementation process. It begins with client engagement, analysis of the business workflow, and trigger mechanism to integrate with the Android OS application. Toggle with Samsung KNOX can help you design and architect uninterrupted transition for your workforce to better mobile device utilization.
Your business can let us know how you want to control the virtual switch between work and personal modes and we will develop that mechanism for you and will be implementable through the toggle manager.
