Leading care home meals provider apetito has chosen SOTI MobiControl to protect business data on its mobile devices.
MobiControl’s data security system is being used on iPhones and driver navigation systems, used at apetito’s operations in Europe and Canada.
Mike Calverley, IT Service Delivery Manager at apetito, said: “Both categories of devices contain highly sensitive and personal customer information. Most companies only worry about the cost of replacing a device if it’s lost but for us the data is far more important. A data breach, either through the loss or theft of a device, could be disastrous.”
Richard Smith, regional manager at SOTI, added: “Enterprises often struggle to manage the chaos of connected devices, especially where mobility is critical to their business. apetito’s mobility strategy is focused on the security and protection of data to the highest level, without compromising daily routines and working processes. SOTI MobiControl has the key features to eliminate customer data loss; alongside location services and device management, it provides complete peace of mind in every way possible.”
Mike added: “SOTI MobiControl has become critical to our business in ensuring we are meeting data protection requirements. The maths is simple: it doesn’t come down to the number of lost phones the company has been able to recover. Instead, it comes down to the ability to continue to protect our customers and keep communication confidential, which is priceless. We now have plans across our apetito management services to add more devices to the business, including iPads. It will therefore continue to be essential to have a centralised system and base to manage all of our devices at apetito.”
