Best Mobile Device Management (MDM) Software

Mobile device management (MDM) software is used by businesses to optimize the functionality and security of their fleet of mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. The intent of MDM is to optimize the functionality and security of mobile devices within the enterprise, while simultaneously protecting the corporate network. By applying custom policies to smartphones and tablets through MDM software, an administrator can regulate both corporate-owned and personally owned devices to the organization’s policies. IT departments use MDM software to monitor, manage, and secure employees’ mobile devices that are deployed across multiple mobile service providers and operating systems, as well as enforce policies and maintain the desired level of IT control. MDM software can limit the risk of lost data, stop unapproved software installs, and prevent unauthorized access to the mobile devices accessing corporate data and networks.

To qualify for inclusion in the Mobile Device Management category, a product must:

  • Be compatible with all common or company-issued mobile devices, and support necessary operating systems and platforms
  • Function through/with multiple service providers
  • Customize, according to company policy and/or requirements.
  • Integrate with the already existing IT, administrative, and application systems
  • Enable the remote configuration, locking, wiping, detection, and encryption of devices
  • Report on device activity
