Mobile Devices In The Workplace
It’s no surprise that the way these personal devices are being used in the modern workplace has caused dramatic shifts in IT management. Mobile devices have brought many benefits and flexibilities that increase workplace efficiency and reduced overheads. But they’ve also increased the likelihood of security breaches, connectivity issues, privacy concerns, and more. This is why effective mobile device management is crucial.
How It Works
There are tools available to help you create and enforce mobile device policies to protect your systems and data.
Relying on a combination of MDM software and oversight from IT service providers, network administrators typically configure mobile device policies through an MDM server’s management console. These policies are then pushed through the wireless communication system to an MDM agent on connected mobile devices by communicating with built-in APIs (application programming interfaces). And, in a similar fashion, applications can be deployed to manage mobile devices through the server.
