Mobile Device Management Solutions

Most mobile device management solutions provide organizations with end-to-end security — meaning themobile apps, network and data used by the mobile device (in addition to the mobile device itself) are managed by an organization's IT department with a single mobile device software product.
Some enterprise MDM solutions combine mobile security and expense management in a single product. Depending on the vendor and what specific features it supports, you can typically expect mobile device management software to contain some or all of the following features: management and support of mobile applications, mobile policy management, inventory management, security management and telecom service management.

Today's category of mobile device management software is one way that an organization can deliver secure mobile solutions to its BYOD workforce.
