What is Mobile Device Management (MDM)?

what is mobile device management

Mobile device management (MDM) is a software application for centralized monitoring and management of all mobile devices connected to the organization's network. It automates device enrollment, configuration and enables enforcement of security policies to secure organization-owned data.

The need for Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Device Management (MDM) is considered an administrator's task, where they must deal with managing various devices, including:

  • Deployment
  • Security
  • Monitoring
  • Managing
  • Integrating

These devices include tablets, laptops, smartphones and regular PCs in the workplace. The primary function of MDM is to keep the security and functionality of all devices within the business while still protecting the network and keeping corporate information secure.

  • Deploy new hardware, applications and operating systems
  • Remove/add devices from your network when necessary

How Comodo MDM handles BYOD?

Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) programs are all the rage. Employees want to use their personal devices at work instead of relying on possibly old and outdated company PCs. This can save the company money because they don't have to maintain a fleet of computers, but it can also pose problems.

When employees are allowed to access company information, security measures have to be taken. If devices are lost or stolen, you don't want your sensitive data falling into the wrong hands. With our Mobile Device Management solution, you'll be able to wipe devices, either partially or fully so that your information stays safe.

If they are company-owned devices, you can completely wipe them clean and start from scratch. If they are personal devices from the employees, you can just wipe corporate data from them. Contact us today to learn more.
