Protect and Secure Your Company Devices

In the digital age, online identification and security have become very complicated. Businesses are using fingerprint readers or complex password requirements that most of us can never seem to remember, all in the name of protecting the user’s identity and the data inside. Here are two valuable ways to protect and secure your company devices.

1. Protect Your Devices & Prevent Theft

Taking the simple step of “putting your name on it,” a method you first learned in kindergarten, can help secure to your company devices. That’s where techniques like laser etch and custom branding come in.

The benefits of customizing devices with your company name or logo go far beyond aesthetics. Particularly beneficial for businesses with a large number of remote employees using mobile devices, branding allows for easier identification and tracking. Thieves are less likely to take something that has been permanently marked with a name or logo since they are usually hoping to sell what they steal.

2. Secure & Safeguard Your Data

Inside the device itself, additional security measures are needed to protect the data and privacy of the company and the user. When multiple devices are used in the workforce, an efficient way to manage and control the devices is through mobile device management (MDM).

Implemented and managed over the air, MDM optimizes the security of all the corporate devices from one place. Functionalities include, but are not limited to:

  • Securing emails and documents
  • Managing passwords
  • Restricting app or device usage
  • Setting up firewalls on the Internet

Additionally, if a device is lost or stolen, MDM can also remotely clear passcodes, lock the device and wipe all of its data.

Mobile devices bring incredible benefits to the workplace. Like the adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” it’s important to take appropriate measures to safeguard your mobile technology.

Contact FUSION OF IDEAS for more information about how customization and MDM can protect and secure your mobile devices.

Gearing Up for Apple’s Newest Devices

Apple CEO Tim Cook took center stage yesterday at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino to announce the release of several Apple device updates. If you were on the watch like us, you know there will be three new iPhone models building off of the company’s 10th anniversary iPhone X: iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. Additionally, Apple Watch Series 4 will feature a larger display with a slightly thinner body, along with some cool features like heart monitoring and haptic feedback on the crown.

Announcements of new Apple products, or any new mobile tech device, mean one important thing to us at Fusion of Ideas: we’ll be researching and presenting our customization offerings for the shiny new devices as soon as they hit the market.

The art of mobility is clear with every touch point of the customizing experience. And members of the Fusion of Ideas customization team are seasoned pros at figuring out the specs for new devices. Even when the new device is similar to an existing one, measurements accurate to hundredths of an inch must be taken to create a spec file that will be used for production. We also run tests and research on the materials the device is made out of – even a slight change to the type of metal or glass can change the way we approach customization. Most importantly, our color and laser customization process allows us to brand devices with high-quality graphics while not voiding Apple’s device warranty.

We’re excited to dive in and present custom options specific to these new devices. Stay tuned for more information as we await the release dates.

Successfully Deploying Hundreds of Pre-Loaded iPads Without Having To Touch A Single Device

Atlas Roofing is a manufacturer of residential and commercial building materials. The company started as a single roofing shingle manufacturing facility in 1982 and is now an industry leader, distributing products worldwide.  

Atlas Roofing came to Fusion of Ideas in need of a solution.  Their headquarters are in Atlanta, Georgia, but many of their contractors are located elsewhere and work remotely.  To ensure the most effective utilization of Atlas products, materials and iOS applications, executives initiated a discussion of a cellular iPad rollout that would keep everything and everyone on the same page.  

Atlas needed a company to handle the constant rollout and ordering of devices. They also needed specific applications preloaded onto the iPads along with unique websites, home and lock screens.  The devices needed to be fully charged, cleaned, shrink wrapped and securely shipped to Atlas contractors across the nation.  Fusion of Ideas was able to handle all of those requirements.  By partnering with Fusion of Ideas, Atlas Roofing Corporation is able to seamlessly deploy hundreds of pre-loaded iPads to their contractors nationwide without ever having to touch a single device.  These electronic devices are fully equipped with the necessary tools for contractors to execute their daily tasks efficiently.  Fusion of Ideas’ services are enhancing the impact of each device, while simultaneously saving Atlas valuable time and resources.
