How is business and private data separated on the devices?

If company cell phones may also be used privately, the need to separate company data from private data on the device arises from the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (or other regulations) and for reasons of data security. There are two ways to do this:

  1. a so-called container app and
  2. MDM software.
With both options, an encrypted area is created on the respective mobile device in which the company data can be administered and, for example, deleted remotely if necessary ("remote wipe").

We at Everphone recommend the use of an MDM, as such software usually offers more comprehensive features and functions than pure containerization – for example, mobile application management.

This can be used, for example, to control which productivity apps can be installed by the user at all, when updates to the mobile operating system are made, and much more.

We are happy to offer you solutions from our MDM technology partners. If you are already using an MDM, everphone will simply integrate it on your rental devices.
