No matter how small or large your organization, data and device security is more important than ever. Whether the company owns the entire fleet of smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops, or you own your own device due to a BYOD policy, installing a mobile device management (MDM) software like Miradore is the right choice.
It not only removes headaches for IT and senior management but it also frees employees from having to make individual security decisions for their devices. Overall, MDM mitigates risk and prevents business disruption.
Let’s look at 5 reasons how MDM puts security first, tightening control while allowing employees to do their jobs better.
1. Centralize control
With Miradore’s remote features, IT managers can control configurations and installations, set policies (i.e., for passcodes), and restrict application use for all devices in an organization. This increases security because employees will be prevented from changing security settings; additionally, employees will be prevented from accessing certain apps on work-related devices that may pose a security threat.
2. Automate device enrollment
Further to centralized control is the ability for MDM to automate device enrollment. With Apple DEP and Android Zero-Touch, employees can be ready to go when the device is powered on for the first time right out of the box. This not only increases productivity but ensures device security from day one.
3. Access analytics
Miradore’s data and analytics provide a comprehensive overview of managed devices. In addition to templated dashboards and standard reports, paid plans have endless possibilities, with custom attributes and reporting. Based on these reports, IT managers can keep track of device statuses to ensure safety and compliance. They can also troubleshoot and take action when necessary.
4. Track location
MDM’s Location Tracking features add yet another layer of security by enabling the IT manager to determine the current whereabouts of a lost or stolen mobile device on a map as well as location history from the past 3 months.
5. Allow for diversity—and UEM
Today’s workplace often witnesses diverse IT environments, with varied hardware ownership, device models, operating systems, and apps. Miradore is compatible with iOS, macOS, Android, and Windows, so organizations can have unified endpoint management (UEM) and the ability to manage security via a single management interface.
