How much of your corporate mobile data plan is going to legitimate business-related work?

If you have a way to go back and look, especially over this past year, it might be a good idea to do a quick assessment/review of usage and overages. You may be surprised with the results. It would be next to impossible to garner any real-world usage data out of any mobile bill itself but there are plenty of services and solutions that can provide deep insights. 

In some cases you may find that usage is very low, in which case you'd want to adjust and trim plans so you're not paying for something that staff isn't using. On the other hand you may find that your bill has regular overage penalties, where you'll certain want better data. 

I'm not suggesting you bring the hammer down on staff and lock things down. Everyone has it rough theses days. There needs to be some leeway.  Regardless, it is good data to have so that when changes do need to happen you're prepared and ready to gradually change policies as needed. It is also especially helpful to spot abuse and blatant disregard for corporate policies. Many companies are looking for ways to control and reduce costs. Mobility is an excellent place to start. 

I’m sure most enterprises have some sort of MDM in place (Mobile Device Mgmt.), but that is only half the battle. 

Cloud-based, mobile firewalls services not only encrypt mobile data end-to-end and completely secure everything, but they also give companies a complete view of usage and granular control. 

Some of our clients have employed a mobile firewall service from companies in our portfolio and have managed to significantly cut mobile data overages and adjust usage at the app level. As a result they cut costs 20-30% by better controlling usage (oh, and improving security)!
