Mobile Device Management Essentials

The efficient work of enterprise depends on the effectiveness of management of mobile devices as usage of mobile devices on the operating level increases the productivity of employees. IT managers of the company have to make sure that IT policies and configurations meet the requirements of the best practice of the mobile devices. Successful Mobile device management (MDM) gives a possibility to control and manage multiple mobile devices, ownership models and use cases.

Here are some practices that can help to improve the quality of MDM

Make User setup and enrollment easier

The user should be able to start working within seconds. Moreover, users should be able to self-enroll, and IT team have to automatically setup Wi-Fi and VPN configurations on the user’s handheld device.

Defining the policy controls

MDM proposes a profound set of policy controls you can use: password, device decryption, Wi-Fi etc. More than that, it offers a possibility of wiping the data from the stolen, lost or retired device to diminish the possibility of data loss.

MDM helps to support all mobile devices

MDM is really helpful in this case as it enables IT team to monitor and manage all mobile devices of the company from a single console. Effective MDM supports wide range of the most popular OS and platforms. It will be especially useful when the company uses Bring Your Own Device method of work as well as when employees use corporate devices. Well-thought-out policies of the company help to manage all devices effectively, no matter who is the owner of the device.

It is possible to deploy MDM to a cloud or hybrid systems. If your company uses cloud-based storages of data, deploy your MDM to the cloud. If it is not, but you are going to use it, try the hybrid deployment to get more control over the data.
