Mobile device management, also known as MDM, is an enterprise management solution that allows organizations to improve the productivity of their employees on mobile devices that they prefer using. The system addresses different areas including cost, management challenges and security risks to improve security within an organization.
Some of the features of MDM include improved security across different operating systems, email configuration, a reporting tool for IT administrators, secure in-line access gateway and email attachment protection. It features an administrator tool that allows for managing the life cycle of a device from the registration to retirement of an employee. Additionally, administrators can apply policies, change applications and solve end-user privacy concerns.
