Mobile Device Management Best Practices

Introduction 

The rise in preference for remote work and automation has led many organizations to shift to online systems. Mobile devices, including smartphones, laptops, and tablets, are now employed everywhere to connect with employees and streamline productivity across all departments. 

However, this has also increased the risk of cyber threats, hacking, and data breaches. Along with that, maintaining productivity and efficiency has become a major concern for corporates.  

Therefore, as mobile devices have become integral to any organization’s functioning, the need for strategizing the best practices for Mobile Device Management to maintain productivity, efficiency and security has risen multi-folds.  

Best Practices for MDM 

1. Automation 
Automation in MDM helps save a lot of time for the IT team and also significantly decreases costs. As per the Salesforce survey, automation saves upto 30% of the time and 26% of costs. How does it help? 

  • Automated security updates and data deletion allows the organization to employ the latest technology against hackers who are usually well versed with the flaws in the old system. It further helps the organization to use the up-to-date features at its disposal.  
  • Automated reports help maintain the constant information flow of all the devices and reduce the need for manual input. 


2. Accessibility 
Having easy access to the tools, apps, reports, and devices is the key to the high-end performance of any organization. Accessibility also means restricting the unlimited access of the company’s resources to the employees and enforcing a strict usage policy to ensure data doesn’t leak in any case.  

Resultantly, companies can restrict certain types of devices along with implementing strong multi-factor authentication to secure access to business data. 

3. Regular Training 
Giving proper training to the employees is among the most important things to adequately use the MDM to maintain productivity and efficiency. It helps them stay updated about the company’s security policy, best practices, and latest updates, thus ultimately improving the learning curve and reducing mistakes.  

4. Use the right apps 
Companies must dictate which apps and softwares should be used in the organization’s network. They should restrict any app that can potentially threaten the network’s security.  

Moreover, the essential apps should also be regularly updated to decrease the chances of data breaches and use better features for strengthening productivity. 

5. Enforce Corporate Guidelines 
All the above practices can be properly enforced only by creating a dynamic policy and implementing it uniformly across all the networks and departments. It can include how to access the company’s devices, corporate networks, precautions while connecting with networks and devices, limitations on usage of certain apps, etc.
