Hardware and Software Security, Mobile Device Management (MDM) and access and protection of company data. Hardware and software security is the protection of computer systems from damage to their hardware, software as well as information. Hardware and software security includes controlling physical access to hardware as well as protecting it against harm that may come from network access and code injection.
Hardware and software security is of growing importance due to the increasing reliance on computer systems and the internet. Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a safe and secure way of ensuring that employees do not breach company policies. MDM deals with corporate data segregation, securing emails and documents as well as integrating and managing mobile devices including laptops and smartphones of various categories.
MDM is implemented with the use of a third party product that has management features for vendors of mobile devices. Access and protection of company data refers to the protecting of documents such as those in a database. This protection keeps company data safe from destructive forces and from the unwanted actions of unauthorized users.
Backups are used to ensure data is not lost and can be easily recovered from another source. Access and protection of company data is considered essential and is recommended for any files that are important to a user.
