Mobile Device Management (MDM)
Common Operating Environment (COE)
When selecting your MDM platform, you should also consider what your COE (the common IT architecture within your organisation). Some MDM solutions are superstars when it comes to one platform, but may have limited- to no support for other platforms.
Further to this, your MDM should be able to manage centralised network connections and, if necessary, limit the ability to connect to unknown networks.
Available and Competent IT Support
Whether you have internal IT staff or a contract with an IT provider, you need to also ensure that the administrators of your COE are able to competently administer your MDM solution.
Device lifecycle management
Your choice in MDM solution should be able to apply the relevant level of device- and data security with the ability to ensure important security policies such as mandatory passwords are enforced across your devices.
