3 Critical Takeaways from Ericsson’s 5G Report

The Ericsson Mobility Report from November 2018 reveals its projections for mobility through the year 2024:

* By 2024, 55% of North American mobile devices will be on 5G networks
* Video will represent 74% of all mobile data consumed by 2024 driving usage higher
* Average monthly mobile usage will quadruple to 19GB in 2024

Since we know most data consumed is personal, business-liable devices will dramatically increase unless your company has a strategy to enforce maximum WiFi usage. We start by setting your company’s policy thresholds then send alerts when data usage is reached.

How Companies use Text Alerts to Control Employee Data Usage

Being able to inspect and report data usage in real-time can significantly reduce how much data your employees are using.  When one CIO became concerned about the rising cost of her company’s data use, she found real-time alerts not only significantly reduced mobile data usage, but a byproduct she wasn’t expecting was productivity increased overall.

As this company learned, all it took to significantly reduce mobile expense cost was to identify policy thresholds and send alerts when data usage reached these thresholds. No company today should be paying for the out-of-control data usage habits of its employees especially when education and alerts can be this effective. With the help of MobilSentry™ Real-time, now you don’t have to.

MobilSense Announces New Life-cycle Program

Company financial and security risk associated with enterprise data left on end-of-life corporate-liable devices is a legitimate and growing concern. The cost of data breaches is on the rise. Even when employees or MDM software is resetting a device to factory settings and wiping data, it doesn’t deter individuals with nefarious intent from extracting private information from a discarded device. A recent IBM study cites a 6% data breach increase from 2017 to 2018 where a single breach can cost a company millions of dollars, per incident.

Ensuring that all data is removed from a device no longer in service requires the expertise of a certified organization who meets industry and government standards. To address this growing security concern along with our clients increasing interest in the environmentally conscious disposal of mobile devices, MobilSense announces its partnership with a certified recycle and disposal company. This capability is included at no additional charge for those who subscribe to our Help Desk service. Simply enter a termination or upgrade order through MobilSentry™ Order Manager and a return box for shipping the old device will be shipped.

How does the new MobilSense Lifecycle Service work?
When an upgrade order placed via MobilSentry™ Order Manager has been approved, a return box for shipping the old device is delivered to the same shipping address of the upgrade device.

Why is my mobile data still at risk if have reset to factory settings? The only way to truly protect data is to physically remove bits on the internal drive of the device. To simply reset or delete only hides the information from a typical user.

Why do mobile phones need to be recycled?
Most mobile phones contain plastics and precious metals that when placed in a landfill can pollute the air and contaminate the soil and drinking water.
