The software can manage at least 150,000 devices per server.

With Android for Work, Google is on a par with Apple in the central management of Android devices via a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution and enables, among other things, the separation of professional and private data. Android devices can be integrated as of version 4.0, Android for Work can be used on any device as of Android 6.0 without any additional app. The Android administrator can be used via the MDM console and encrypts the data managed in the apps and their connections – private apps remain inaccessible to the administrator. In addition, the Knox security features for encryption, secure boot and VPN can be set up and configured for Samsung devices from the MDM.

Apple helps companies deploy and configure their devices through the Device Enrollment Program (DEP). The program enables automatic registration, configuration and monitoring of Apple devices during setup through a Device Management Solution (MDM) – without the need for setup service or physical access to the device. DEP also allows Apple devices to operate in supervised mode, allowing certain configuration restrictions such as turning off iMessage or Game Center to be centrally stored. For this purpose, a DEP server is defined in the MDM, which identifies itself via an Apple certificate. The corresponding feature for Android is Zero Touch Enrollment.

The private mobile devices of employees have become the preferred working device in many companies. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) approach not only increases employee productivity and satisfaction, but also lowers investment costs for client hardware. The management of the different devices, however, means considerable effort for IT. In addition to effective administration, BYOD also requires secure access routes to business data, especially from unsecured public spaces, as can be implemented using a powerful BYOD solution.

Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) brings the previously separate client management of PCs and mobile devices onto a single platform. UEM is a response to the fact that the boundaries between desktop, mobile and, increasingly, IoT devices are becoming increasingly blurred, which is why user companies are increasingly looking for a unified and therefore efficient solution to manage these devices. UEM combines traditional client management functions with Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) functions, making it the logical next step after EMM. In addition to efficient endpoint management, the goals of the UEM are a uniform user experience and reliable protection of sensitive company data.

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.
