Mobile Device Management
(MDM)

Simplify the secure management of smartphones, tablets, laptops, wearables and IoT devices.

Enable thousands of users and devices to access your network with confidence in your mobile security.  Enroll and onboard new devices. Restrict usage or push apps and content out to your mobile environment. Track hardware and software, and dynamically deploy security policies as device posture changes.

Leading analysts have defined Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) tools as a set of offerings that include mobile device management (MDM) and modern management of traditional endpoints. Gartner also includes integration with client management tools (CMTs) and processes based on the migration that is happening in the marketplace.
