The intent of Mobile Device Management (MDM) is to optimise the functionality and security of mobile devices within the enterprise while simultaneously protecting the corporate network.
However, mobile devices are no longer disposable items, they are more expensive than laptops and often contain higher levels of confidential personal and business data.
Mobile devices are getting more complex and costly to support
This whitepaper uses the lifecycle framework to manage the elements associated with mobile devices and reviews how organisations can reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO) when it comes to supporting their devices.
As mobile users increasingly demand the ability to use their own devices for everything personal and work-related, IT is quickly losing control over end-user technology decisions. Especially in terms of a business’s IT team who are being asked to support a growing of business including, BYOD tablets and smartphones. Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) incorporates MDM, a comprehensive solution that helps organisation to support a multi-OS environment that allows employees to used their preferred devices to access corporate apps and data whilst meeting critical security and compliance requirements.
