Mobile Device Management policy has a lot of buzz going on about it these days. We’ve been getting a lot of questions about it, so we figured it would be a good idea to host a Virtual Roundtable to discuss it.
For those of you who were unable to attend, we’ve got the video of it, which you will find below, as well as the transcription; however, both of those are rather long and hard to digest. So, we decided to create a “recap” document. It covers all of the ground that we did in the virtual roundtable, but in a clearly laid out, easy to digest, piece of content.
MDM – Mobile Device Management…Even the thought of it is frightening. I have a tough enough time managing a Blackberry, 2 laptops, and a Playbook. How would I control things that I don’t own? This leads me to the next question. Are we talking about a mobile device that the company owns or is the device owned by the employee?
I have been reading some analyst reviews of MDM and have mixed this with my own field experience over the past year to reach a few conclusions. As you read this, remember that these are devices that the employee owns and not the company.
