Getting Started with Enterprise Mobility

May 9, 2016 | By admin

Not long ago, most companies employed workers who sat at desktop computers all day and performed a number of tasks. Mobile device management (MDM) was not much of an issue. However, today more and more workers are using laptop computers, tablets and smart phones and this has created the need for enhanced mobile security. When you access a network from a wireless device it can create a lot of security issues and proper MDM not only protects your employees but also your data. Now let’s talk about getting started with the process.
What is Mobile Device Management?

Mobile device management is also called enterprise mobility management. It is designed to help companies make the transition from fixed devices to mobile devices while maintaining maximum security. This helps workers enjoy a great deal of freedom and some people don’t even need to come to the office to get their work done.

What Does Mobile Device Management Entail?

Effective MDM includes these features:

  • Device protection
  • User protection
  • Network access protection
  • Protecting company data

Finding the Right Application

A good program needs the ability to multitask, because it must cover many things at the same time. It should be user friendly and allow the user to access all available resources easily. Here are additional features to look for when you check out MDM software:

  • Operating systems support – mobile devices use a number of operating systems today. For example, smart phones may use Android, Windows Phone, iOS and Symbian. Tablet and laptop computers may use a number of different operating systems too. The best MDM software can handle many different systems.
  • Mobile application management
  • Mobile content management
  • Mobile security – this is the most important feature of mobile device management as it keeps everyone on the network, their devices and data, safe and secure.

Finding the best system is so important because “wireless mobile” is rapidly gaining in popularity as we become a mobile and Internet oriented society.
