Maintaining mobile device security: How to prevent user breaches

To ensure mobile device security, VPN expert Rainer Enders explains that it is crucial to monitor changed states and block software modifications.

How can you ensure that a user does not tamper with or disable mobile device security?

All your security components should provide for proper protection, locking and monitoring. For example, your mobile device management tool should identify changed states. Based on the compliance check, the system can initiate several actions, such as wiping the device and/or sending an alert to the administrator. Your security should protect software against any kind of modifications and particularly prevent the uninstallation of applications from the device.
