Mobile Device Management

Mobile Device Management (MDM) refers to the initiatives that an enterprise uses to oversee, streamline, and secure the company’s often-large supply of devices that workers use.Whether company-owned or the employee’s, the diverse array of laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc. enrolled in the company’s MDM are meant to perform uniformly.Under MDM all ofthese endpoints are managed centrally though use of client-side software such as an application, and a central server and terminal where it is orchestrated. Admins push policies, applications, features, and updates from the central server to the endpoints over the air so all of the devices conform to a standard menu of capabilities, limitations, and features. Goals of MDM are:

  • Overall performance and device health
  • Secure network access
  • Restrictions on how data can be transmitted
  • Employee app updates
  • Monitoring for abnormal or unsanctioned usage
