Since mobility has become a twenty-first century phenomena, it has offered great opportunities to organisations to enhance their business and marketing strategies, allowing for a more dynamic, contemporary and flexible approach. As a result, mobility has improved customer engagements, global brand recognition, expansion of advertising methods, internal staff collaboration and most importantly, the empowerment of employees. Employees are greatly benefited from mobility as they can work while they are on the go with exclusive flexibility, especially with password reset self-service.
A recent study by Travis Bradberry represented this flexible culture of Netflix and how the company allows staff members to work remotely without having to adhere to a strict 9-5 work routine. The study showed that providing autonomy did not result in a lack of accountability but rather has increased the market cap of Netflix by $51 billion.
Mobility and technological innovation allows employees to work from various different devices such as, smartphones, tablets and laptops which also means that security is at the top of the agenda for organisations.
One of the predominant security concern for the IT department and the operations team is strong password management and a robust network infrastructure for their company. It is possible for the IT department to become inundated when mobility becomes a technological culture within the business. Forgetting passwords, resetting passwords and unlocking accounts can become a hassle for the IT department as well the employees. Furthermore, managing users in Active Directory can also be a constant job. Such issues are driving the demand for password self-service applications where employees can manage their own accounts from any device and at any time.
