Mobile Device Security (MDM)

Mobile Device Management (MDM) ensures employees stay productive and do not breach corporate policies. MDM primarily secures emails and corporate documents on devices, enforcing corporate policies, integrating and managing corporate-owned mobile assets including laptops tablets and mobile phones. MDM implementations may be either on-premises or cloud-based.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is less a technology than a business policy or strategy, allowing employees, contractors and visitors to connect their personal devices to the corporate network, wired or wirelessly. This poses various security risks and privacy issues. For example, technologies exist to carry out host integrity checking, policy compliance and patch management, but imposing these on a privately-owned, non-corporate owned device is problematic. A typical solution to non-compliant devices is to redirect them to a captive portal, offering Internet access and limited (or no) corporate resources.
