It’s time to take a moment to think about mobile device management in 2020!
Many employees are already using their personal devices for work and this has led to a rise in demand for MDM solutions from large corporations and small businesses. Businesses were already struggling to keep work and personal data separate and with remote work it’s clear to see businesses need a management solution. Whether it’s personal data or corporate data, mobile security needs to be on the top of your mind and finding the right mobile device management software is where you start!
“There are many tangible benefits of BYOD, including reduced equipment costs, increased employee efficiency and satisfaction, reduced office space square footage (should workers transition off-site), and a decreased IT staff burden since employees will maintain their own equipment.
However, along with these benefits comes risk as well. With BYOD policies, employee-owned devices can potentially expose security vulnerabilities not directly supervised by IT staff or addressed by corporate antivirus solutions. This is where the need for mobile device management comes in.”
MDM stands for mobile device management and refers to software solutions that allow companies to manage employee devices that are deployed in the field. Mobile device management software is often combined with additional security services and tools such as Mobile Application Management to create a complete mobile device and security Enterprise Mobility Management solution.
“Coupled with additional tools, technologies, processes, and policies, an MDM solution is a core component of enterprise mobility management (EMM), an ever-developing organizational trend that addresses the business and technological context of device usage in everyday business operations.”
When choosing an MDM solution, make sure your choice allows you to adopt what is best for your company and allows for future flexibility. MDM is no longer optional for large or small organizations and is critical to gain the maximum value potential of mobile-drive workforce trends.
