Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a software solution that secures, monitors, supports, configures mobile devices to be used within an organisation. MDM solutions are used to control both company or school owned, and personal (BYOD) devices, using MDM functionality such as:
- over-the-air application distribution
- data and configuration settings such as:
- WiFi Profile
- Network Access Control Registration
- Disable manual application installation
- Disable Camera
- Disable Specific Applications from use
By controlling and protecting the data and configuration settings for all mobile devices in the network, MDM can reduce support costs and business risks. The intent of MDM is to optimize the functionality and security of a mobile communications network while minimizing cost and downtime.
With the proliferation of Apple and Android devices being so high, most MDM solutions currently only fully support IOS and Android devices.
