Today, we will see how your Windows 8 tablet, even in a lockdown mode (using SureLock) can be used as a branding tool.
Why do I need to lockdown a mobile device?
Based on a survey last year by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), it was reported that 21 percent of tablet buyers had plans to use their tablets for business. Use the tablets at the counter or use it as a kiosk, it always will works.
But again, whether a big enterprise or a small time business with mobile workforce, deployment of tablets as field tool may be more than just handing a tablet instead of a laptop. The tablets that you are giving away unguarded can be an exposed medium for accessing unwanted applications and you may be paving possibilities of your workforce’s effortless working hours.
