Managing Mobile Devices

Mobile Device Management solutions deliver all the benefits of mobility safely and securely



Mobile Device Management enables workforce mobility and brings huge productivity benefits

The way we access information and communicate with each other has been revolutionized by smartphones and tablets. Most organizations are now looking to embrace the power of these devices in order to improve their productivity and be better placed to face future challenges. A key part of achieving this is ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD), which is now an accepted part of corporate IT strategy. To meet this growing demand, organizations require Mobile Device Management solutions to control their physical assets and ensure users have access to the resources required for their job. Such a solution must maintain security and privacy, with potentially sensitive information reaching far beyond the traditional corporate domain.

Selecting the Right Solution Is Difficult In A Developing Market

Mobile Device Management is a developing market, with new solutions being introduced almost daily. Identifying the right one to meet your needs is a challenge in its own right.

Mobile Device Management (MDM) Challenges

Mobile Device Management deals with the deployment, securing, monitoring, integrating and management of mobile devices in the workplace. The intent of Mobile Device Management is to optimize the functionality and security of mobile devices with the enterprise, whilst simultaneously protecting the corporate network. Key considerations include:

  • Which devices are supported: iOS, Android?
  • Easy enrollment and configuration
  • Ability to differentiate between corporate and BYOD devices, and manage accordingly
  • Protection afforded in the event that a corporate device is stolen or goes missing
  • Measures to control the movement of valuable devices in vulnerable locations, such as iPads used in schools or hospitals
  • Ability to identify if a device has been unlocked or hacked (jail broken or rooted) and therefore is vulnerable to damaging malware

Personal Device Used for Work

Since modern IT services and solutions have made it possible for data to be stored on mobile devices, it is easy for employees to access corporate information. As such, many workers have adopted the use of personal devices for work-related activities as they prefer carrying a single device. But on the flip side, such devices are not under full IT control and there is a high risk of data loss.

Application Management Challenges

Mobile Application Management (MAM) covers the delivery and administration of enterprise software to end users’ corporate and personal mobile devices. Key considerations include:

  • Easy distribution, update and maintenance of corporate applications to end users
  • Security and controlling access to sensitive applications, such as price lists
  • Ability to manage and control access to publicly available applications
  • Management of licenses purchased through VPP (Apple’s Volume Purchase Program), ensuring applications can be uninstalled remotely and made available for re-use as necessary
