Mobile Device Management

Mobile Device Management software (MDM) is security software which allows for simple monitoring, security and overall management of employee devices within your business.

What is Mobile Device Management?

Mobile Device Management software (MDM) is security software which allows for simple monitoring, security and overall management of employee devices within your business.

The need to work fast, efficiently and with flexibility is key to the success of the modern-day business. This means business mobile devices, such as laptops and phones, are being used more and more often within businesses. Because of this,  MDM solutions are fast becoming a necessity rather than a ‘nice to have’ feature for business communications.

Cloud-Based Mobile Device Management Solutions

A quality MDM solution can increase the efficiency of your IT department. Previously tedious time-consuming jobs such as provisioning new devices, installing updates and patches, managing apps, or updating device security can now all be done remotely, in bulk, in a matter of minutes. Likewise, when someone leaves the organisation, access and privileges can be revoked instantly which has obvious security benefits.

With each employee accessing multiple devices at work, all connecting to your business network, the likelihood of security breaches becomes much higher. To reduce or remove this risk, a good corporate mobile device management solution will be required.

Mobile Device Management Best Practices

To achieve this flexible way of working, more and more companies are allowing employees to access the corporate network from their mobile devices. This inevitably presents some challenges for IT departments to manage, as they try to mitigate the threat to security from unmanaged and lost or stolen devices.

Policy enforcement is vital in protecting valuable business data, but it does require that a business has the right policies defined and should include access control, acceptable use, encryption and data management policies.
