Mobile Device Management
Mobile Device Management (MDM) software secures, monitors, manages, and supports mobile devices deployed across mobile operators, service providers, and enterprises. MDM functionality includes over-the-air distribution of applications, data, and configuration settings for all types of mobile devices, including mobile phones, smart phones, tablet computers, etc. This applies to both company-owned and employee-owned devices across the enterprise or mobile devices owned by consumers.
