Mobile Device Management

About The Course

With the onset of Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD), the concept of Mobile Device Management has gained a lot of currency across organizations of all sizes. This training will provide an understanding to the participants how Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions secure, monitor, manage and support mobile devices which are used by the employees and managers. With the deployment of MDM solutions, participants shall witness how easy it becomes to enforce BYOD policy and comply with local laws and trans-border regulations across the enterprise. We shall look how MDM solutions optimize the functionality and security of a mobile communications network while minimizing cost and downtime.

What is Mobile Device Management?

Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution secures monitors, manages and supports mobile devices deployed across mobile operators, service providers and enterprises. MDM functionality typically includes over-the-air distribution of applications, data and configuration settings for all types of mobile devices. This applies to both company-owned and employee-owned (BYOD) devices across the enterprise or mobile devices owned by consumers.

  • Do you have to encrypt the entire device, or the provider lets you encrypt company specific or selected files and folders?
  • Identify if there is a support for selective wipe which erases only corporate data in case a remote wipe is issued?
  • Identify if there is any option for Automatic device provisioning?
