Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Mobile Device Management (MDM) stands for the management of mobile terminal devices. If terminal devices such as smart phones, laptops or tablets are integrated in the network of a company, it is necessary that they meet the prevailing security standards. Next to administering the terminal device, the MDM can be used to encrypt, ban or remotely delete data. The MDM may also perform controls on the access to applications and the data pool.
