Geofencing - Reducing Risks Down to Zero in Device Management

Hexnode MDM, one of the "must check out" Mobile Device Management solutions in the market has been upping the game for a very long time now. The vast feature list is proof enough to say that the MDM is in itself a complete solution for enterprises. The Geofencing feature that Hexnode launched a while back is one of the best security features in the product.

Geofencing is a location-based feature which allows the enterprises to define boundaries and no-go zones for the device. Hexnode helps to define necessary actions that need to be executed when a device enters a geofenced area. The reason for the popularity of this feature is that the enterprises can put a virtual leash on their corporate devices. The company may not be able to stop the device from traveling but they sure can decide how the device should work.

"All this fuzz is about one thing - Data and device security. These devices contain corporate data which is very vulnerable. In situations like this, there is no such thing as too much security. Hexnode makes sure that the data and devices are protected at all times," ​said Vipin Govind, the Senior Software Analyst at Mitsogo.

Locating devices, grouping them based on location and assigning policy is automatically performed by the MDM. This automated behavior makes it reliable and efficient in the business environment. Thus once defined, the MDM will keep both eyes on all the enrolled devices. The feature finds its application in nearly every business sector. Since its release, the feature took off real fast. Even though adopting mobile devices has its advantages, it also possesses a great security threat. The fast migration of enterprises to MDM makes it evident that they do not take security lightly and are very aware of the threats.
