..If you use Google Apps you already have a Mobile Management provider..  for more info Ask Us

Android for Work features four key technology components:
  • Work profiles
  • Android for Work app 
  • Google Play for Work 
  • Built-in productivity tools

Visit the Android for Work site

In the context of Google for Work - Administrators have access to mobile device management for both Android and iOS.  Mobile Device Management (MDM) allows admins to see what devices are connected, require device passwords and remotely wipe data when necessary.

Many companies are passively accepting BYOD (Bring your Own Device) - this could be the fault of a tired old CEO, a tired old CTO or more usually a tired old CFO... :-)

Regardless where blame lies this is a disaster from a corporate security perspective, lost / hacked devices can compromise an entire network and the data thereon.

The Mighty Sean Quinn is Back

Sean Quinn we salute you.

It gives me the greatest pleasure to witness the return of Sean Quinn to his headquarters. There is no doubt that in the nine counties of Ulster the majority of people have the utmost respect and admiration for Sean Quinn, for his ability and acumen and the strength of character to fight against a corrupt state and to never give up.

I would like to wish Sean Quinn, his family and all those who supported him all the best for 2015.
