Why do I need a MDM Strategy?
If your employees use smart phones, tablets, laptops or other mobile devices to conduct business or access company data, regardless of whether the device is company or employee owned; you need a mobile device management (MDM) strategy.
Let’s start with the basics…What is Mobile Device Management (MDM)?
MDM is a core element of enterprise mobility management (EMM), which incorporates:
- mobile device management (MDM)
- mobile application management (MAM)
- mobile security
- and mobile content management (MCM)
The purpose of MDM is to enhance the functionality and security of mobile devices within the enterprise whilst protecting the corporate network and data.
A MDM strategy details all the devices and applications, software, policies, procedures and resources your business is willing to commit to manage and protect your company data.
What is driving this rise in demand for MDM?
- The continued growth of BYOD programmes
- Mobile apps
- The expectations of the mobile workforce – the need to be ‘connected’
- Growing cybersecurity threats
- Regulatory and compliance (GDPR) requirements
