Mobile device management (MDM) is a security software used by the IT department to monitor, manage, and secure employees' mobile devices like, laptops, smartphones, tablets, etc. that are deployed across multiple mobile service providers and across multiple mobile operating systems being used in the organization.
Having an MDM in place lets you remotely monitor and manage (RMM) client endpoints, networks and computers. This is also known as or referred to as remote IT management.
1. Enhanced Security
MDM ensures your business data is protected and ensures your company is able to control confidential information. In the case of a stolen mobile device, MDM can remotely lock and wipe all the data. Remote locking and wiping capabilities enable companies to keep devices and data secure.
2. Reduced Costs
Having MDM reduces and contains the negative impact of unsafe website visits and infected downloads. These security settings save your company the hefty cost, inconvenience, and potential reputation loss associated with malware and data breaches. An additional benefit of MDM is it allows your business to keep track of the mobile usage of an employee.
3. Improved Efficiency
The MDM software is centrally managed, hence it reduces the time and resources spent on IT administration. The software can install, update, and remove applications, policies, and settings from one management dashboard. This makes it easy to ensure a consistent mobile experience, keep security settings up-to-date, and remove access for devices no longer in use.
MDM provides asset management tracking, so your business can easily identify which employee has which mobile device. The software enables your IT team to provide updates and replacements to your workforce’s mobile devices as required. MDM’s central management and asset tracking feature greatly reduces the amount of time and resources required by IT departments to manage mobile devices.
