What is Mobile Device Management (MDM)?

Mobile device management (MDM) is security software, that empowers IT departments to actualize approaches that secure, monitor, and manage end-user mobile devices - not only smartphones, but also tablets, laptops, and even IoT (Internet of Things)-devices. The term is commonly identified with enterprise use of mobile devices, where it is essential for businesses to both allow for effective mobile device use, and protect vital data from unapproved access. Mobile device management is a solution that allows you to permit or deny a device’s access on a network based upon a certain set of criteria.


A mobile device management solution can provide you with detailed device type infos, hardware inventory as well as a listing of installed apps. With the help of MDM, we can also define password and complexity requirements and apply system restrictions such as restricting the use of device’s camera in certain environments.


The core feature of an mdm system is to administer devices and support users. Mdm solutions simplify the process, by enabling us to centrally manage all mobile devices across all company sites. You are thus able to remotely reset passcode, lock devices or wipe devices. You can create dynamic mobile device groups with automatic service actions report on mobile devices managed across all company sites.


Mobile device management helps to ensure the security of a corporate network while allowing users to use their own devices and work more efficiently.
