Mobile Device Management (MDM) is crucial part of doing business in today’s mobile-friendly world. As a core component of enterprise mobility management (EMM), MDM is used to optimize the functionality and security of mobile devices while simultaneously protecting your corporate network. It’s a modern-day must have.
Mobile device management emerged in the early 2000s — primarily as a way to control and secure the mobile phones used by employees for business purposes. However, employees now bring their own devices to work, so MDM software has grown incredibly sophisticated.
Today, MDM tools give you management over all your mobile devices — allowing companies to conduct some of the following actions:
- Remote wipe a phone if it is lost
- Remote wipe only company data on employee owned devices
- Restrict apps used for company data
- Manage apps on mobile devices (deploy and remove)
- Secure and Separate corporate email and associated data.
- Quarantine jailbroke devices.
MDM gives you a central place to manage the company’s mobile devices or the company’s data that passes on them. But it doesn’t just stop at mobile devices. Modern MDM products support not only smartphones but also tablets, Windows 10 and MacOS computers and more.
You have many options for MDM software, none of which are better than MobileIron-EMM —easily deployable and upgradable software.
