Top 10 Things to Know About MDM
1. Definition (What is it?) Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a broad category of tools that enable organizations to centrally manage and control mobile devices. This includes data and application distribution, configuration, and security; as well as policy, security, service management, and inventory control. MDM deployments are often driven by the need to accommodate personal devices (BYOD) on corporate networks.  Still a relatively new category of tools, MDM products are quickly maturing with some vendors offering broader features and integrations.  Expect a significant amount of innovation, mergers, acquisitions, and plugs into other technology such as Network Access Control.
