Your staff own the same phones, tablets & laptops your business uses.
By allowing staff to bring their own devices to work, organizations can significantly reduce their IT costs.
But there's a catch: Unless you're managing those B.Y.O.D. devices, you can't guarantee your data is being accessed securely, and that it's safe from theft or loss. Backstage lets you enforce security polices on consumer devices, providing a lyer of security that doesn't get in the way of personal use.
What does Backstage Device Management Cost?
That's it. There's no per-user licensing cost. There's no device licensing cost.
Just a flat fee for all your devices every month. When your organization grows, you don't need to worry about incurring additional costs for new devices.
Backstage offers enterprise-grade secure device management for a cost that's unbeatable compared to doing it ourself, or going with any of the big cloud providers. At such a low rate, why not secure your communications, take control of your devices, and protect your data?
Protect your business from lost or stolen data
Our mobile devices accompany us pretty much everywhere we go. They also happen to contain a staggering amount of data that should be kept private. And not just corporate data. The reality is that if our phones and tablets find their way into the wrong hands, the private information that can be harvested is a serious liability.
As our devices become more powerful and capable with every upgrade, the question of data security needs to be answered. Backstage gives you options to deal with lost or stolen mobile devices and ensure your data is safe.
Remote lock and wipe devices
Enrolling your devices with Backstage means you can easily and securely protect your data from loss or theft, by initiating a remote lock or wipe of any device. This happens over the air and can't be stopped by anyone who possesses the device.
Backstage provides you with an instant, uncrackable solution to remotely lock or wipe a device that's been lost or stolen.
It also fully supports Passcode Lock, which was introduced in iOS 7. This means that if you wipe a stolen device, it can't be activated without your code, making it worthless to thieves.
Take control of your mobile devices
Enrolling devices with Backstage menas you can manage a customizable security policy for your organization, that gets pushed out over the air without bothering your users.
But Backstage goes far beyond setting security policies. Depending on your needs, Backstage allows you to take deep, fine-grained control of what can and can't happen on any device. Just about any feature or function of you iPhone or iPad can be restricted or allowed. And because security policies and settings can be assigned to devices, users, or groups of users, you can ensure the right settings are applied to the right people.
If you work in any number of information-sensitive sectors, including law, finance, education, product development, scientific research, or government (to name a few), Backstage offers the most powerful and cost effective solutions for managing your devices and securing your data.
Did we mention that security, settings, and updates happen over the air - in the background - without interrupting individual users?

Updates Made Easy
Your mobile devices travel with your people. Most of us can't go for very long without them without taking a productivity hit.
Requiring your team to hand over their devices for upgrades and setting changes can be a nightmare. With Backstage, you can push any settings changes over the air at any time. It all happens in the background and doesn't interrupt or require interaction from the user at all. Imagine being able to update your devices no matter where they were, any time you needed.
Backstage makes it easy.
Install app store purchases remotely!
One of the best new features introduced in iOS 7 was the ability to enroll your devices with Apple's app volume purchase program. Apple's app VPP allows you to buy apps in bulk, and distribute them to your users via redemption codes. This cleans up what otherwise a big mess when it comes to buying and deploying 3rd part apps in enterprise.
Backstage allows you to distribute App Store apps over the air and install them right on a user's device, all in the background. With Backstage and Apple's VPP, your organization can retain ownership of your purchased apps and avoid the complexities of tracking personal Apple IDs and reimbursing personal app purchases.
