Prateek: How Blackbox Duo Assists MSMEs Companies in data breaching by Synersoft Technologies?

Mostly they rely on their employees to use their personal laptops on a BYOD basis. BLACKbox duo makes dual profiles on employee’s personal laptops, i.e. personal and professional. BLACKbox duo intelligently applies enterprise policies on professional profile and gives access to enterprise data and networks. It does not apply enterprise policies on personal profile to allow the employee to use the device for personal purpose.
