Tablet use is on the rise but not without risks

Tablet use in enterprise markets is on the rise. The use cases are just as varied and unique as the tablet designs themselves. Restaurants install them table-side for efficient ordering. Retailers use them as a medium for consumers to browse inventory, access product information, and place orders. Banks install them in kiosks to reduce waiting lines for simple transactions. In all cases, the main objective is to enhance the customer experience. Consumers like using familiar technology to access the information they need, when they want it. Businesses that embrace this fact with tablets and other mobile devices are often rewarded with higher sales and lower costs. 

However, investment in this technology brings with it an increased risk in security breaches, carried out electronically and physically. When a tablet is stolen, businesses don’t just lose out on the cost of the device. Productivity levels can also be negatively impacted. Plus, thieves can gain access to important information assets that are stored on the device. Spending upfront in methods to manage the risk permits better cost management over time. 

Consider partnering with security ISV companies that can provide additional layers of security to your customers’ mobile solution purchases. Not every company needs the same degree of security in place, but any business managing transactions or storing information will need an extra security step. Adding security software partnerships and offerings to your line card can help enhance your sales. Customers will feel taken care of, walk away with more peace of mind, and feel confident that your company has their best interests at heart. With retail establishments falling under cyberattacks more often than ever before, it’s important to ensure the solutions you sell are digitally secure and are the best full solution for your end-users. 

It’s never too late to secure your solutions. For more information on security solutions, visit BlueStar now.
