A number of security conscious work sites ban entry camera phones and mobile devices with wireless data features (including WiFi, Bluetooth, and Infrared).
MSDN blogger Jason Landridge mentions a product from Credant that might be able to help end the need for such severe policies banning devices many of us consider critical to our day-to-day work (and play).
Jason describes Credant’s product as:
One of our Partners Credant has a solution called Mobile Guardian which provides the ability to control cameras, disable bluetooth and infra-red as well as provide encryption and policy management. This is a really secure/controlled way of ensuring that the features you don’t want people to have access to are disabled whilst still retaining the flexibility the device platform offers.
- Disabling Phone Camera’s, Bluetooth and other capabilities on Enterprise devices
- CREDANT Mobile Guardian Enterprise Edition
Would this kind of product help you get your mobile device back into your office/workplace?
