Many enterprises are turning to container solutions as the answer to BYOD problems. AT&T's Toggle has just been enhanced to make it easier for workers to carry just one smartphone and gives network administrators more control.
The latest additions include improved user experience and new applications in the AT&T Toggle App Ecosystem. Customers also benefit from AT&T Toggle Data packages available for use with AT&T Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value plans.
SleepMed Keeps it Separate
According to Gartner, "By 2020, 85% of organizations will adopt BYOD in some form."
One example of this is SleepMed, Inc., a private sleep diagnostics and ambulatory EEG provider. Like many healthcare institutions, SleepMed, Inc. is moving to BYOD to reduce costs and increase productivity and convenience.
The company is providing AT&T Toggle to its 1,000 SleepMed employees and has plans to expand to the 8,000 physicians in its network to meet a demand for smart connectivity.
"Using AT&T Toggle will allow our community to use their personal devices for work without compromising security—which is of the utmost importance in the healthcare industry. Our staff will be more mobile and connected," said Sean Heyniger, chief executive officer, SleepMed, Inc. "As a result, they can improve workflow, and ultimately, patient experience and outcomes."
The Toggle App Ecosystem applications give organizations flexibility and control of a self-managed solution by adding a layer of protection to applications on employee-owned devices. This access management helps businesses protect their network and provides employees a familiar and easy solution for sharing and storing information in the cloud.
The Box mobile app for storing, managing and sharing content on-the-go, has been added to the Ecosystem. Box wrapped in AT&T Toggle allows enterprises to securely access and collaborate around business content and enables IT admins to manage specific features of Box that address the specific needs of an organization.
IT managers can allow employees to switch between the personal and work modes on their devices without entering a PIN code. E911 emergency call "My Location" capability can now be set up on more than one device associated with the same AT&T Toggle Voice number. This helps 911 authorities identify a caller’s location at the time the call is placed so they can dispatch a nearby emergency response team.
The tool's secure mobile workspace and is now certified under the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2. FIPS is a U.S. government computer security standard used to test and validate product security. AT&T also added Juniper Networks SA Series SSL VPN to its portfolio of highly-secure VPN providers.
