The challenge

Porter Davis had a 1.6 TB data pool plan with its telco carrier but was routinely going over this limit. The company had very limited visibility into data spend so it was difficult to know how to control it. The telco carrier’s customer app and the monthly bills provided basic information on data usage but it would only be available after the fact.

“We were finding that on our group bill, people were using over and above our 1.6 TB limit and therefore costing the business thousands and thousands of dollars, because it would push us on to the next cap which was 2 TB. A lot of this excess usage was people using personal services, like YouTube, so we needed to control that.”

– Jerome Chant – Service Desk Manager at Porter Davis

From a security perspective, the company uses web and email filtering on its desktop devices and needed to extend this security and control to mobile. After looking into a similar content filtering service for mobile that use a VPN, it became clear that VPN services can be problematic so a better security solution for mobile was needed.

From an administration point of view, Jerome and the team were finding there was a very limited amount that they could do to control and manage the devices because of the rigid default iOS security settings. They needed more control and the ability to customize the device fleet.
