Improve Government Worker Safety with Apple Devices and TRUCE Software

Solution Brief

Manage Access Without Limiting Mobility

In today’s world, mobile devices are our constant companions. They’re powerful tools that make us more efficient and productive at work—especially when we’re on the go. But, there’s a time and place for everything. Distractions can lead to safety concerns when workers use devices in ways they shouldn’t.

TRUCE® software on an Apple® device ensures that doesn’t happen. It enforces your policies and adapts as a worker’s environment changes, for example, by restricting access to texting while an employee is driving or hiding distracting apps like social media when a worker is in a potentially dangerous area like a work zone.

For government agencies with field workers for services such as construction, utilities, and flight operations, leveraging technology to create safer working environments can save lives and limit liability.

TRUCE and Apple Devices: Safer Together

Contextual Mobility Management (CMM) from TRUCE enhances traditional endpoint management solutions, eliminates costly risks, and transforms how employee device usage is managed at different times and in different environments. When installed on Apple devices like the iPhone® and iPad®, it recognizes the context surrounding the use of a device in real-time. CMM temporarily suspends the user’s access to distracting or prohibited applications.

Real-Time Management

CMM takes an automated—proactive rather than reactive—approach to mobility management. Because the software lives on an employee’s mobile device and is configured to enforce policy automatically as soon as a context is identified, organizations can avoid the need to intervene in device functionality after a policy has already been violated.

High-Level Oversight

CMM provides a centralized approach for leaders and authorized personnel to actively manage mobile device policies and individual compliance. CMM can also be integrated with an existing endpoint management platform, further simplifying the ability to enforce compliance across large workforces and locations.

Visibility and Enforcement

It can be confusing for employees to keep track of what’s considered acceptable use throughout their workday. CMM provides enhanced visibility for all involved parties, alerting employees when policies are active based on unique configurations that fit the employer’s requirements.

Workaround Prevention

CMM contains multiple safeguards against user tampering, preventing the ability to disable functionality without the support of an IT professional. Put simply, CMM works when it’s supposed to, automatically, on any device and independent of network access.
