CPAs and finance professionals must tackle increasingly sophisticated threats, ranging from cyberattacks to the loss of mobile devices, by developing and implementing security policies and plans that cover all the potential risks. It is critical to implement security measures such as two-factor authentication to ensure that only those you authorize have access to your mobile platform.
3. The Universe of Devices
You also have to think about the types of devices that your team will use. Are they more likely to use smartphones or tablets? If you want to use mobile to approve payments on the go, then smartphones would likely be the device of choice. If you need mobility, but still require a high degree of functionality that could be useful for things like client meetings on the go, tablets could be more useful.
4. BYOD or Company Issued
Companies have to decide if theyll embrace a bring your own device (BYOD) environment, or insist upon company-issued devices. While there are benefits to BYOD, including cost savings and employee satisfaction, companies have to be aware of the compliance, security and compatibility issues.
