What is Mobile Device Management?
Many mobile devices now have virtually all the same capabilities as conventional desktops, leading many organizations to adopt a mobile-first or mobile-only workforce. And, while the portability of mobile devices brings many advantages, not the least of which the ability to work from anywhere, they also present security challenges such as unauthorized data access and data leakage. Furthermore, when your employees have a choice of technology, such as with a “bring your own device” (BYOD) policy, having to support and manage multiple manufacturers, operating systems, and device types can be a complicated and daunting challenge.
Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a software application used for managing the various portable devices that your organization uses, such as laptops, smartphones, tablets etc. The MDM process involves managing everything about your workforce’s mobile devices including essential information storage about the devices, determining approved applications, device tracking and locating, and securing devices if lost or stolen.
If you want to leverage portability to improve productivity without compromising security, you need a proper mobile device management system set up to simplify the challenge of managing mobile devices.
The right MDM solution is essential to effectively manage mobile devices. MDM solutions make managing all the different types of devices in your organization easy and efficient by compiling everything you need in one place. They let you manage the apps being installed or removed on mobile devices, configure basic settings on devices, and set up devices that will be used for specific purposes, like point of sale (POS).
