How Sealy overcame its mobile security and data management challenges

Sealy

The challenge

Sealy, like many businesses, previously had BlackBerry as its mobile device of choice to provide email access. As BlackBerry’s availability and popularity declined, Sealy made the 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.

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

With this company-wide shift toward 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.”
