What is TOPIA?


More computers, more software, and dynamic environments lead to more vulnerabilities. The Security and IT teams are put under immense pressure to tackle the growing number of vulnerabilities while reducing their time to remediation. 

Legacy approaches to vulnerability remediation required organizations to manually scan their network and use several different tools to remediate the vulnerabilities for the operating systems by different teams. 

TOPIA is a consolidated Vulnerability Remediation platform that allows covering different OSs (e.g Windows, MacOS, and Linux.) and 3rd party applications from the same dashboard to efficiently target all risks. Using the patch management module, organizations can quickly test and install patches across their assets while maintaining transparency between departments, and plan ahead with scheduled one-time or recurring patches. 

Topia allows IT and Cybersecurity teams to manage their patches and vulnerabilities in one place. Easily add, create, and manage operations, teams, and stakeholders all from a single dashboard in real-time. 

Competitive Advantages 

Patchless Protection: In-memory protection for software binaries and libraries. 

Hands-off Deployment: Cloud-first architecture, no local hardware needed. 

Data Prioritization: Proprietary MapReduce engine to collect, format, and analyse execution attributes.

You may be wondering why it is so important to keep work and personal data separate. It helps employees to draw clear lines between work and their personal lives. It is, however, a tool that helps businesses secure and manage employee data. Businesses can use Android work profiles to push corporate policies that are strictly focused on their work profile, without compromising the privacy or user experience of employees. 

Let’s see how we can seperate work and personal data using Android devices. 

Separate Work Profile from Personal Profile for Android Devices 

  1. Multi-User Profiles

Users can create Android work profiles. However, it is possible to separate work and personal data from their devices using another method. Multiple user profiles are a great way to accomplish this. Android devices allow you to create multiple profiles with a primary and secondary Google account. You can create the primary profile for your personal profile, and the secondary profile for your work profile. Then you can switch between them depending on your work hours. 

However, this is a slow and tedious process that many people don’t like. It takes a lot of time, is not supported on Samsung devices and is difficult to do at an enterprise level. 

  1. Android Work Profiles

Android devices with version 5.0 or higher support the work profile feature. This allows for a separation of the data and personal apps on the phone and creates an account. An MDM solution that supports Google Android Enterprise is required to achieve this separation. Android MDM Solutions such as Scalefusion provide containerization capabilities to help IT administrators set up a work profile that allows for efficient BYOD management. 

What is containerization? 

Containerization allows apps to be segregated so that they can run on different devices with the same OS. Containerization is a way to virtualize all components of an app into one container that allows it to run as an isolated entity using a shared OS. Containerization is a great way to help businesses manage their BYOD. It allows IT administrators to seperate employee work apps and personal apps on BYO devices. For additional security, this containerized data can be encrypted separately or password protected. 

The benefits of containerization 

According to statistics, 67% employees use their personal devices for work. Businesses need to develop strategies to streamline BYOD management. 

How containerization benefits employees and businesses: 

Corporate Data Security 

When employees use personal devices for work, it is important to protect sensitive business information. Employers will find it easier to secure corporate data by providing company-owned devices. Enterprise policies can also be used to protect these devices. It is not fair for employees to give their company access to their devices and to set up customized settings. 

Businesses can use data containerization to achieve a balance between giving employees access to their devices and protecting their corporate data. Scalefusion MDM allows you to apply corporate policies to an Android work container. This will ensure that all corporate data is protected in the work container, while the rest of your device functions remain unaffected. To further enhance your corporate data security, you can restrict data copying from work to personal applications. 

Simplified Administration 

Imagine how difficult it is to manage and monitor employees’ personal devices. First, the enterprise cannot have complete control over the device. IT administrators are always concerned about accidental and intentional data breaches. 

An MDM solution can make managing work containers easier by allowing IT teams to monitor and manage hundreds of thousands of employees devices. 

Privacy of Employee Data 

BYOD policies can be difficult to convince employees. Many enterprises have encountered resistance to BYOD policy because employees fear losing their privacy. Employees can change their view on BYOD management by using containerization. This is because any corporate policy they extend to their work profile does not affect their device’s functionality or personal data. 

Separate Work and Personal Work Apps for Android with Scalefusion MDM 

Scalefusion makes it easy to manage employee-owned and BYO devices. This helps to ensure that corporate data is protected and used in a non-intrusive way. 

To manage the personal devices of your employees, as an IT administrator, you will need to know these things. 

  • Set up an Android for work 
  • Update your company’s information successfully 
  • You can create a BYOD profile that suits your business’s needs with the right policies and settings 
  • Scalefusion Dashboard allows you to manage users by adding and importing employees 
  • Send invites to your employees by email using enrollment configurations, such as QR codes. 

Closing Lines 

Enterprise mobility allows employees to stay connected anywhere they are in the world. However, it also blurs the lines between personal and work life. Scalefusion MDM makes it easy to separate work-related apps from personal data on employees’ Android phones.
