How Sealy overcame its mobile security and data management challenges


The challenge

Sealy, like many businesses, previously used BlackBerry as is mobile device of choice to provide email access on a secure handheld device. As BlackBerry’s availability and popularity decreased, Sealy made the decision to transition to iPhones. When making the switch, Sealy found that the new accessibility and flexibility that iPhones provided came with a new set of challenges – especially in terms of security and data management.

Sealy’s employees across the country are now using iPhones as a replacement for BlackBerry devices: sales staff, managers and executives are all using their phones at an increasing rate for emails, training materials, reporting and other custom applications that Sealy has put together to help make the team more productive.

“We develop custom applications so that our users can do more work on the go, on their phone. With this flexibility, they don’t always have to boot up their laptops and this increases productivity.”

– Sealy of Australia IT Services Manager

With this company-wide shift towards increased mobility and productivity Sealy wanted to make sure its security strategy was adapting to cope. “We want to treat a handset just like a laptop, we always have antivirus installed on laptops because they connect to our network, so a phone should be no different.”
