What is Mobile Device Management (MDM)?

Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a software solution for the central management of mobile devices. It can be used to manage, secure, support and configure smartphones and tablets throughout their entire lifecycle, independent of the operating system. For the effective execution of these functions, the administrator and his employees have role-based access to the devices and their functions and data via a console. MDM software also includes automated configuration – such as e-mail, separation of corporate and personal data, integration of the corporate structure, selective deletion of data and certificate-based security.
