Globo is being recognised for its revolutionary enterprise mobility management solution for small and medium businesses (SMBs), Enterprise Mobility in a Box.
“We are proud to be recognised as a leader in our industry,” said Costis Papadimitrakopoulos, founder and CEO of Globo. “Enterprise Mobility in a Box is the first enterprise mobility management solution targeted specifically to SMBs to provide secure and controlled access to all of their business systems and information, allowing companies of any size to manage their mobile workforce through the GLOBO cloud infrastructure.”
The Enterprise Mobility in a Box platform is literally an “out of the box” approach to enterprise mobility for SMBs that allows companies with up to 150 devices to securely run and manage their BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) mobile workforce through the Globo cloud infrastructure. The plug-and-play solution allows employee-owned devices to access business data in a centrally controlled manner within a secure container, without imposing limitations on device configurations or on the use of personal data and applications.
