The world has changed. Working from home and mobile working is now normal for most people, however in most businesses, managing their devices (laptops, desktops, tablets and mobiles) is not done robustly. Mobile Device Management (MDM) is no longer optional. Without it and an in-depth approach to access, user and device management, organisations have a significantly-increased risk of a breach. MDM allows for devices that are shipped straight from the hardware distributor to be configured to meet your policies from when the user very first logs in. Data is encrypted, updated as required and then wiped when the user leaves, without ever needing to be seen by an IT technician. Some of the core functions of MDM include:

  • Ensuring that diverse user equipment is configured to a consistent standard, and a supported set of applications, functions, or corporate policies
  • Updating equipment, applications, functions, or policies in a scalable manner
  • Ensuring that applications are used in a consistent and supportable manner
  • Ensuring that equipment performs consistently
  • Monitoring and tracking equipment including its location, status, ownership, and activity
  • And being able to efficiently diagnose and troubleshoot equipment remotely.
