I think I can safely say that we've all had one of those moments where we frantically dig through purse,
pockets or car looking for our phone. And I doubt I'm speaking just for myself when I say that those few moments before finding my phone are accompanied by mild panic. Let's face it: we rely on our phones for so much (everything?); they are our lifelines; our Wikipedia; our calendars; shopping lists. The vast amount of personal information on them is staggering, especially if you are a business professional. Your contact list, email accounts, passwords and other information is essential and so is its security.
First of all, please put a password on your phone if you don't already have one. According to PhoneArena, 54% of all smartphone users do not password protect their device. That's incredible, considering it is one of the easiest ways to protect your information.
113 cell phones are lost or stolen every minute in the U.S.
Thankfully, as a Managed Service Provider, we at
DirectNetworks offer you a few crucial options to help protect your data. It's called Mobile Device Management and it's your new best friend if your phone is lost or stolen. If for example, your smartphone is stolen, we can remotely wipe your data, ensuring the thieves make away with nothing more than an expensive piece of equipment; and not your confidential business and personal data.
In addition, if you forget your password, we can help you reset it; getting you back into your phone and on with your day.
