Mobile Device Management (MDM) software is used to manage groups of mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. Because these devices run different operating systems than their PC counterparts, are often used by employees at home or on public wireless networks and can download applications from app stores, special management software is needed to ensure their security.
Mobile device management (MDM) is the administration of mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablet computers, and laptops. MDM is usually implemented with the use of a third-party product that has management features for particular vendors of mobile devices. Though closely related to Enterprise Mobility Management and Unified Endpoint Management, MDM differs slightly from both: unlike MDM, EMM includes mobile information management, BYOD, mobile application management and mobile content management, whereas UEM provides device management for endpoints like desktops, printers, IoT devices, and wearables as well.
