Mobile Device Management (MDM)
Mobile Device Management (MDM) is the role of enabling IT to control the securing, monitoring, integrating and managing of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops in the workplace. It’s a necessity for all companies; small, medium and large, who have a mobile workforce and are conscious about data leaks. The purpose of MDM is to optimise the functionality and security of mobile devices within the workplace, whilst also protecting the corporate network and any corporate data that has been downloaded or synced to the mobile device.
Without a successful security strategy in place, an organisation could suffer the financial, regulatory and reputational consequences that follow a serious data-security breach, with penalties resulting in fines of up to 4% of an organisation’s global annual turnover or €20M, whichever is higher. In reality, litigation will probably be taken by large groups of aggrieved EU citizens of specific organisations that fought the GDPR articles, and quasi class actions could result in damages much higher than €20M.
