Answers to questions we're often asked

An organization is going to have BYOD whether they like it or not. BYOD policies are inevitable unless you want to put the entire organization at risk. Most employees are using their devices for both personal and business activities; an organization is only as secure as its weakest link. Should even a single device be lost, stolen or hacked, the entire business is at risk. 

The main problem with BYOD is from the management side. The organization must implement a Mobile Device Management (MDM) Solution to create a comprehensive security infrastructure, which will secure both the personal and business activities on the phone. If a security breach has been detected, the MDM can lock down the phone or even wipe it clean – personal and business; An act which will cause significant disruption to the employees’ personal lives.

Of course, Cubed Mobile protects business data without interrupting employees’ personal lives by creating a highly secured super-app that adds a siloed work smartphone into a personal device. Get more information at www.cubedmobile.com.

Start-ups already have significant expenses: IT infrastructure, real estate, personnel, etc. Buying individual mobile devices  (plus maintenance and upgrade costs) for each employee would incur another major expense. By default, most employees in the organization are already using their personal devices, so BYOD policies should be put in place immediately.

Furthermore, if startups disregard mobile security, they are putting the business at significant risk before it has even gotten on the ground. If a threat actor accesses an employees’ mobile device, it gives them access to the crown jewels of the organization – including the startups’ intellectual property.

Startups don’t have enough IT staff, limited budgets, and not enough resources to accomplish all of the “traditional” infrastructure requirements. Cubed Mobile, which delivers a highly secure corporate workspace and unified communications suite a in super app – and takes all of 30 minutes or less to implement – is the ideal solution for startups.

Instead of being pro v. con re: BYOD, the issue is actually which is the lesser of the two evils. Whether the device is owned by the company or the employee, the company needs to implement mobile policies and a mobile device management ecosystem to ensure that any device that interacts with the corporate network is fully secure and can be wiped out if hacked, lost or stolen and upgraded as necessary. 

When the company owns the devices, the company has the added expense of purchasing the devices; replacing or fixing  them if they are lost, stolen, or broken; and managing the risk of having employees perform personal activities on the corporate devices.  

When the employees bring their own devices, the company must address the same issues of private-company activities, mobile device management, and wiping out the systems when the devices are hacked, lost or stolen. With BYOD, the expense of purchasing the devices themselves has been eliminated.

Neither is ideal, but BYOD is slightly less expensive for the organization.

If you are looking for the optimal solution, check out Cubed Mobile, which has developed a completely new approach. It delivers comprehensive corporate workspace and communications in a personal device. The technology transforms one mobile into two, siloing an entire business smartphone in a super-app, virtually separating the personal device from the corporate device.

BYOD is bring-your-own-device, and it allows smaller companies to leverage all the benefits of a mobile workforce without investing in buying, fixing and later replacing mobile devices for each individual employee.

The organization however must be aware of the following risks: 

  1. Security – if devices, which got access to the organization, are lost or stolen, someone else can access the corporate network and/or data.
  2. Privacy – there is no separation between the employee’s personal and work life
  3. Customer relationships – Customers become used to calling their sales or technical reps on their personal numbers. When those employees leave the organization, in many cases to competitors, the customers often automatically go with them
  4. Reputation – With one device, employees may accidentally send inappropriate images or content to customers or colleagues, or send sensitive business information to private contacts and groups,  when using WhatsApp or other popular messaging solutions.

Organizations need to take a new approach to BYOD and consider technology that leverages the BYOD environment but provides a completely separate, fully secure virtual workspace. It should contain all corporate apps with unified communications, which allows the company to assign proprietary phone numbers to the sales force so when they leave the organization, the company keeps the contacts.

Almost every organization is BYOD by default; in the United States alone, 81% of adults owned smartphones as of February 2019. https://www.pewresearch.org/internet/fact-sheet/mobile/

The issue is how much control does the organization have over those devices. Traditional mobile device management is increasingly more and more expensive because the IT team must constantly update them with the latest security and corporate apps and ensure that when they are lost or stolen, the corporate information is wiped clean. Furthermore, they need to ensure the employees always update them when they replace their old devices with new ones so those, too, can be managed and tracked. 

A completely new approach has been developed by Cubed Mobile, which delivers comprehensive corporate workspace and communications in a personal device. The technology transforms one mobile into two, siloing an entire business smartphone in a super-app, virtually separating the personal device from the corporate device. 

Delivering a complete workspace combined with a unified communication hub, the self-contained, centrally managed virtual smartphone, can be installed on any device. It delivers a new level of corporate control by strengthening security, smoothing communications coordination and easing management of BYOD with a new approach to the Mobile Device Management (MDM) ecosystem. 

It streamlines security and operations by centrally managing and tightly controlling and securing all mobile workspaces. The system strengthens the user experience by giving employees a fully functional smartphone wrapped inside an app on their own or shared corporate devices. The flexible customization allows the creation and enforcement of different settings, all with comprehensive monitoring on an easy-to-use management console.

It delivers complete separation between the work and personal life, reinforcing better work-life balance. The solution allows the company to implement specific work hours – work access is between 8 am – 8 pm Monday-Friday for example – preventing access during other times.

Cubed Mobile’s siloed infrastructure ensures the corporate workspace has no contact whatsoever with the “personal” side of the device. It never interacts with employee’s personal data and apps on his phone, allowing employees to feel safe and secure that the employer will never monitor their private life

Computer hardware has become a commodity. Bring your own device (BYOD) is standard operating procedure for most organizations. According to Statista (www.statista.com), as of February 2019, 74 percent of Americans owned a desktop or laptop computer so bring your own computer is a real possibility for many organizations.

Security and control of the workspace is where the issues arise. However, a solution exists. Cubed Mobile has developed a tool that delivers a comprehensive corporate workspace and communications for mobile, laptops, and tablets. It delivers a new level of corporate control by strengthening security, smoothing communications coordination and easing management of BYOC. 

It streamlines security and operations by centrally managing and tightly controlling and securing all workspaces. The system strengthens the user experience by giving employees a fully functional laptop wrapped inside an app on their BYOC. The flexible customization allows the creation and enforcement of different settings, all with comprehensive monitoring on an easy-to-use management console.

Most medium and large companies have already adopted bring your own device (BYOD) policies. They are the most at risk of having their networks breached by employees’ nonsecure devices.

They have long been proponents of mobile device management solutions, which track the employees’ personal devices to ensure that all interactions with the corporate network are secure. Of course, this also interferes with the personal aspects of the employees’ devices, meaning the company can completely wipe out the employee’s phone in case of breach, theft, or loss.

Cubed Mobile has developed a highly secure technology that delivers both comprehensive mobile security to the company and complete separation and privacy to the employee’s “side” of the device. It directly addresses the increasing need for privacy and security within the personal and professional mobile environments. The solution transforms one mobile into two, encapsulating an entire business smartphone in a super-app installed within the personal device but not “touching” it. Delivering a complete workspace combined with a unified communication hub, it provides a virtual, secure, and encapsulated enterprise infrastructure managed remotely from a central location.

BYOD instantly creates security issues. Any time an external device accesses the corporate network, it can serve as entrée to threat actors if the device is not fully secure. If the device is lost or stolen, the finder or threat actor can easily access the corporate network. If the employee leaves the company, she takes her access with her if the company does not use a mobile device management system that allows them to remotely remove the corporate data.

To ensure comprehensive security on employees’ mobile devices with minimal hassle, the organization can use technology to install a completely separate workspace and communications system on the phone within a superapp, which can be remotely managed and deleted should the device get lost or stolen or the employee leaves the organization.

Cubed Mobile’s technology transforms one device into two – segregating the corporate from the personal. It ensures company data is always separate and secured and completely under the company’s control. The solution delivers a comprehensive communications suite, messaging module, and recording features and allows the company to add local or international phone numbers.

“Traditional” mobile device management (MDM) systems controls both the corporate and personal environments on a mobile device, meaning that if a security breach is detected, the entire phone may be wiped out, and the employee loses all images, personal texts, etc., which is untenable. Furthermore, a traditional MDM system requires the IT team to be constantly vigilant re: new devices, lost or stolen devices, etc., so they can take appropriate actions.

The ideal infrastructure gives you complete control over the complete corporate workspace and unified communications on every device.

Cubed Mobile’s technology transforms one device into two – segregating the corporate from the personal. It ensures company data is always separate and secured and completely under the company’s control. The solution delivers a comprehensive communications suite, messaging module, and recording features and allows the company to add local or international phone numbers.

Traditional BYOD is risk-full. Any time an employee accesses the corporate network with a personal device, it opens the corporate device up to threat actors. If the device is lost or stolen, anyone can access the corporate network.

No matter how good a mobile device management system is, a level of risk remains. The only way to eliminate the risk to the corporate network is to have a separate, highly secure virtual device on a personal phone that can be immediately wiped out if the phone is lost or stolen and that cannot be accessed if the personal device is hacked.

Cubed Mobile has developed a solution that delivers just that. Please visit www.cubedmobile.com for more information about how to create a highly secure, completely separate corporate workspace.

Traditional BYOD policies require that employees agree to use their personal mobile devices for work activities. While this adds a level of convenience for employees – they don’t need to carry around two devices – and lowers hardware costs for companies since they don’t have to buy devices, it builds in vulnerabilities into the corporate security infrastructure, leading to significant risk. 

It’s not the policy that matters; it’s the mobile device management system that’s critical. 

Cubed Mobile offers a completely new approach to mobile device management.

The technology transforms one mobile into two, siloing an entire business smartphone in a super-app, virtually separating the personal device from the corporate device. 

Delivering a complete workspace combined with a unified communication hub, the self-contained, centrally managed virtual smartphone, can be installed on any device. It delivers a new level of corporate control by strengthening security, smoothing communications coordination and easing management of BYOD with a new approach to the MDM ecosystem.

The system strengthens the user experience by giving employees a fully functional smartphone wrapped inside an app on their own or shared corporate devices. The flexible customization allows the creation and enforcement of different settings, all with comprehensive monitoring on an easy-to-use management console.

BYOD has become a way of life.

The BYOD market is on course to hit almost $367 billion by 2022, up from just $30 billion in 2014 (Source: BetaNews).

61% of Gen Y and 50% of 30+ workers believe the tech tools they use in their personal lives are more effective and productive than those used in their work life (Dell)

60% use a smartphone for work purposes while 31% desire one (Dell)

Companies favouring BYOD make an annual saving of $350 per year, per employee (Cisco)

Using portable devices for work tasks saves employees 58 minutes per day while increasing productivity by 34% (Frost & Sullivan)

The issues, remain, though:

Any time an employee uses a personal device to access the corporate network, the company’s crown jewels are at risk. At the same time, if the company installs a mobile device management system and the employees’ phone is lost, stolen, or hacked, the company may completely wipe out the individual’s photos, personal contacts, and mobile “life.”

These issues have been directly addressed, though, by Cubed Mobile, which has built a technology that places a highly secured corporate “super app” within the person’s private device. It creates a corporate mobile workspace and unified communications system within the personal device, but as a totally separate silo. This protects both the company and the employee. 

The best practices for BYOD are to find a balance between corporate security and employee privacy; and work and personal lives; protect the company’s reputation and customer base; and allow delivery of exceptional client service.

Traditional approaches to managing BYOD rely on mobile device management systems, which cover the entire device – personal and corporate. That means, the employees’ private activities can be tracked and monitored and employees can lose all her personal contacts and photos if the device needs to be wiped out if it is lost, stolen, or hacked.

The ideal BYOD situation strengthens corporate security and management while ensuring that the personal and private are kept separately.

Cubed Mobile has come up with a completely new approach to maximizing the value of BYOD while better securing the organization, protecting employees’ data and delivering a better work-life balance.

BYOD has become a way of life. It’s the way most organizations are doing business – employees are bringing their personal devices and using them for both work and their personal lives, keeping them connected 24/7/365.

BYOD significantly increases productivity by keeping employees always connected. However, it does cause work-life balance problems.

Most organizations have embraced BYOD but are still looking for ways to manage it.

Cubed Mobile has built an environment that’s a win-win for both employees and employers in a BYOD environment. It delivers a comprehensive corporate workspace and communications in a personal device. The technology transforms one mobile into two, encapsulating an entire business smartphone in a super-app, virtually separating the personal device from the corporate device. It gives employees a fully functional smartphone wrapped inside an app on their own or shared corporate devices

 

The solution ensures work-life-privacy balance, allowing separate environments with workspace customization, delivering different phone numbers, contacts, ringtones, apps, etc. for personal and business.  

BYOD strengthens employee productivity while giving employees the opportunity to work wherever they want, whenever they want.

 

However, it does increase the organization’s security risk by putting corporate apps and data onto employees’ personal devices – if the device is hacked, lost or stolen, it could be accessed by threat actors. It also creates a situation in which employees’ work-life balance may become out of synch.


Companies must find a solution that strengthens corporate security while ensuring employees have the freedom to work or not work.

Cubed Mobile, for example, transforms one mobile device into two, with a highly secure super-app that contains a complete corporate workspace and unified communications infrastructure, which is kept fully separate from the employee’s device. Its management system provides complete control to the organization while ensuring the personal is fully separate from the private.

The most successful BYOD program delivers a balance among corporate security concerns, employee productivity, and work-life balance.

 

Companies must simultaneously strengthen corporate security while ensuring employees have the freedom to choose their work hours without feeling compelled to be available 24/7/365.

That’s exactly why we developed the Cubed Mobile app, which allows for both.

Delivering complete corporate control, it strengthens security, smooths communication coordination and eases management of BYOD with a completely new approach to mobile device management (MDM). It gives employees a fully functional smartphone wrapped inside an app on their own or shared corporate devices.

You need a solution that balances corporate security with employee flexibility.

Traditional mobile device management (MDM) solutions “takeover” the entire device, giving the business access to the employee’s entire smartphone. Should the device be lost or stolen, the company can completely wipe it out – meaning the employee has lost all of her personal contacts, images, etc. 

The ideal solution creates a completely separate silo, giving the company full control over the corporate workspace “section” of the device, while allowing the employee full flexibility to manage the personal side of the device.

Cubed Mobile has created this type of system.

Mobile device management is the technology that companies use to secure mobile devices being used within the organization, whether employee owned (BYOD) or corporate owned. Traditional MDM allows full management of the device, including all business and personal aspects of the phone. This means that the company has the power to wipe out the entire device if it is lost or stolen.

The MDM of the future creates complete separation between the corporate workspace and the employee’s personal mobile space. It’s already available from Cubed Mobile

Mobile device management critical in a BYOD (bring your own device) environment. Organizations must secure any device that can access the corporate network. MDM allows the company to choose what applications and data can be accessible on the employees’ personal mobile devices manages the permissible connectivity, such as private Wi-Fi v. public. 

Before implementing an MDM system, you need to be aware of a few considerations: 

  • If the device, lost, stolen, or hacked, the company – in its quest to secure its corporate network – will wipe out the phone, completely deleting the individual’s personal life
  • Contacts can be intermingled, so an employee can
    • Bring his corporate contacts to a new employer
    • Accidentally send inappropriate content to corporate clients
  • Devices are limited two only two SIMs, which means that companies with international clients can only serve customers in two countries

Taking a new approach to MDM, Cubed Mobile has created a separate, highly secured app that contains a complete corporate workspace and SIMless unified communications system that protects all the corporate data while ensuring the employee’s “personal” side of the device is untouched.

If an employee is accessing ANY corporate data on her mobile device, mobile device management (MDM) should be mandatory. One hacked or stolen phone can cause millions of dollars in damages to a company, its customers, reputation, and infrastructure.

IT World lists the major threats to corporate security via mobile: https://www.itworld.com/article/3241727/8-mobile-security-threats-you-should-take-seriously-in-2020.html

Scalability is key for any mobile device management solution. You need something that is easily managed, no matter the volume, type, OS, or model of devices. Traditional MDM solutions break down at this level of volume because the IT staff just cannot keep up.

Cubed Mobile is scalable to any level because it is device-, OS-, volume- and model-agnostic. The technology creates a second, virtual device on the employee’s own system, which can be accessed and installed simply with a link sent to the device.

With Cubed Mobile, employees get a fully functional smartphone wrapped inside an app on their own or shared corporate devices. It embeds a separate, unified communications environment within a state-of-the-art platform, allowing complete workspace customization with separate settings, apps, contacts, and phone numbers.

If a phone is lost or stolen, the corporate app can be quickly wiped out remotely, eliminating risk. If the phone is hacked, only the consumer side is at risk, not the corporate app, which is in a highly secure silo. Due to this siloing, employees’ personal data is completely separate from the company’s information.

Cubed Mobile adds an additional level of corporate control that further ensures work-personal separation. The organization can set distinct work hours and otherwise make the corporate app inaccessible.

Cubed Mobile delivers all these MDM features combined unified communications in a single solution. With Cubed Mobile you are fully equipped to manage all mobile devices quickly, easily, and cost effectively.

By default, most SMBs and SMEs are BYOD shops. Most of these organizations don’t have the budget or the resources to provide each employee with a corporate-owned and -managed device. 

Mobile device management solutions are often too complex for smaller organizations, and many lack the IT expertise to implement such a solution. Not only does it leave the business vulnerable to cybersecurity issues it also affects reputation, customer service, and long-term business viability.

Cubed Mobile delivers a freemium version of its enterprise-level technology, which transforms one mobile into two, encapsulating an entire business smartphone in a super-app. Delivering a complete secured workspace combined with a unified communication hub, the self-contained, centrally managed virtual smartphone, can be installed on any device.

We already live in a device-agnostic world. Any screen can deliver the information we seek, be it mobile, laptop, or smart TV. No matter what the future will hold, though, comprehensive security and separation between the work and the personal will still be critical. The best approach will be siloed, where our corporate workspaces and unified communications are kept completely separate from any personal activities. This will allow businesses to secure their proprietary information and applications while ensuring employees have complete freedom to operate as they choose on their “side” of the connectivity.

Mobile device management solutions need to get simpler to protect organizations from this massive volume of devices. They need to be manufacturer-, OS-, and model-agnostic, allowing for complete control without interfering with the “personal” side of the devices.

Mobile device management is critical for enterprises. Companies are legally required to keep their data secure at all times, which includes securing operations and communications while working with remote teams. Like any device, smartphones are vulnerable to attacks from hackers and other threat actors, endangering the company’s confidential data especially if remote workers use their personal devices for work correspondence.

Additionally, there’s that very unpleasant matter of remote employees who leave the organization. While businesses often trust their remote teams to keep confidential data confidential, there’s no controlling disgruntled workers who may take that information with them when they leave – and then sell it to or use it as an employee of a competitor.

Any instance of security breaches can lead to financial loss, and brand and reputation damage – and to ongoing doubts regarding virtual, mobile workspace benefits vs risks.

Conducting business on employees’ personal devices instead of on company-issued ones leads to the overlap of company and personal business on workers’ smartphones and potential violation of privacy. Smartphones even partially used for company business may lead to disputes about productivity, security, and privacy.

Beyond the “arms race” between security and threat actors, companies are fighting a different security war – with employees trying to keep their personal data secure from employers while employers are trying to secure their corporate data. 

The best MDM solution allows employees to go “virtual.” Employers can manage a digital work phone that ensures that the organizations maintain control over their own data while employees maintain control over their own personal digital spaces. 

A new approach to MDM delivers a self-contained smartphone workspace encapsulated in an app, integrated with internal security systems, built-in unified communications suite, SIMless phone lines and apps, creating a centrally managed workspace that can deliver, retrieve and remotely wipe data for greater security, with work and personal entirely siloed. 

As for precautions about BYOD, more of a risk exists if a BYOD program is not implemented. Employees using their personal devices for work means that the company’s crown jewels are at risk from threat actors who use mobile devices for easy network access.

The most important “precaution” to take is to ensure you have a mobile device management (MDM) system in place. MDM tracks and secures the employees’ devices to protect the corporate network if the devices are lost, stolen, or hacked. If that occurs, the MDM locks down the phone and may even wipe it clean.

However, traditional mobile device management is increasingly more and more expensive because the IT team must constantly be vigilant simply to track who has new devices that have not yet been entered into the MDM system. 

Cubed Mobile has developed a technology that eliminates the risks of BYOD and simplifies MDM. 

The technology

  • Allows separate environments with workspace customization 
  • Permits employees to use their own device, apps, and configurations 
  • Creates separate silos between the corporate and personal using different runtime environments and phone lines
  • Delivers different phone numbers, contacts, ringtones, apps, etc. for personal and business 
  • Ensures ongoing productivity even when phones are replaced, forgotten, lost, or stolen
  • Embeds a unified communications environment, within a state-of-the-art platform 
  • Provides cloud-based disaster recovery 
  • Simplifies the corporate mobile experience 
  • Accelerates workforce digital transformation 
  • Consolidates all internal and external communications in one homogeneous environment 
  • Eliminates the need for a second device or SIM 
  • Ensures work-life-privacy balance 
  • Automates deployment, provisioning, policy management, app delivery, and updates 
  • Enhances team collaboration from international helpdesk to conference calls and from sales to support 

The future of mobile device management (MDM) is already here. 

With this new approach to MDM, the volume of devices is irrelevant. The type of device is irrelevant. The OSs are irrelevant. 

This transformational MDM simplifies the corporate mobile experience and improves the work-life-privacy balance by providing a self-contained, highly secure, centrally managed virtual smartphone that can be installed in any device, eliminating the need for a second device or SIM.

It reduces security and IT costs with the ability to remotely wipe, backup, and restore entire workspaces, apps, and settings and migrate them from one device to another with a click; this ensures company data stays within the organization, even if devices are lost or stolen and upon employee separation. It completely protects the workspace while siloing off the “personal” part of the device.

Cubed Mobile embodies this new MDM approach with regard to the use of mobile/BYOD in organizations. Its technology transforms one mobile into two, encapsulating an entire business smartphone in a super-app, strengthening security, smoothing communication coordination, and easing management.

The technology streamlines security and operations by centrally managing and tightly controlling and securing all mobile workspaces. Administrators can create and enforce different settings, all with comprehensive monitoring on an easy-to-use management console

The virtual approach is best, where one mobile is transformed into two, encapsulating an entire business smartphone in a super-app. Employers can offer a digital work phone that ensures that the organizations maintain control over their own data while employees maintain control over their own personal digital spaces. The best way to accomplish all of this is to create two complete siloed smartphones in one unit, installing a virtual smartphone in the employee’s device. Cubed Mobile has been taking the lead on developing and delivering this technology.

The solution is a self-contained smartphone workspace encapsulated in an app, integrated with internal security systems, built-in unified communications suite, SIMless phone lines and apps, creating a centrally managed workspace that can deliver, retrieve and remotely wipe data for greater security, with work and personal entirely siloed. 

Being bodiless, the virtual smartphone could also be shared – and can restore the convenience of a shared company landline without the inconvenience of the actual landline. It ensures the integrity and wholeness of both the workspace and employees’ private worlds by keeping them separate from one another. 

A virtual smartphone has many practical benefits. It can’t be lost or stolen. It is accessible from any device, the way a Facebook account is. It is nowhere, which means it is anywhere, and thus a solution for those with the modern affliction of “nomophobia” – the phobia of being without your device. Finally, the virtual smartphone’s screen can’t crack. It is, in a sense, immortal.
