The acronym MDM stands for Mobile Device Management. The mobile device has become a primary business workspace for many people in recent years, and the growing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is bolstering the numbers and need for secure management. That’s why it has become critical that organizations find a way to protect critical company assets and ensure end user productivity on these consumer devices. MDM enables organizations to monitor and manage all mobile devices across the organization regardless of location or type. With MDM, IT can remotely secure, configure, lock, locate or even erase unrecoverable mobile devices that are used for business purposes.

How to Select an MDM vendor

When selecting an MDM service provider, you should evaluate potential vendors based on your organization’s compliance and security requirements. Additionally, you should be sure the solution you select will fit with your current infrastructure. You will want a solution that is easy to use and that provides the level of security that is compatible with your organization’s needs.

Types of MDM Solutions

MDM is a more complete service that provides additional control over other offerings such as mobile application management (MAM) or mobile content management (MCM).

There are both on-premise MDM solution and cloud-based solutions. A cloud-based solution, such as the service provided by Evolve IP, is faster and easier to deploy, easier to manage, and more cost effective, as it doesn’t require a CAPEX spend.
