Enterprises are slowly but surely opening up to the idea of their employees using mobile devices for work. A research study by Juniper even suggests that there will be one billion employee-owned devices by 2018. It is imperative that enterprises start preparing their monitoring capabilities to withstand the barrage of mobile devices that will come into their environment over the next few years.

While the mobile transition is happening, another transition that enterprises are making is the move to a hybr…

The Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) is all about accelerating the enrollment process of iOS devices into the mobile device management (MDM) client.

Enroll Mobile Devices Easily


Given the nature of today’s job environment, employees increasingly use mobile devices to do their work. Enterprises go through an elaborate decisionmaking process to choose the right mobile devices for their workforce or to allow employees bring their own devices (BYOD). IT administrators then enroll these devices into the management so that the users can create, share and access resources without compromising the enterprise’s data security.

The task of device enrollment is undertaken by the IT admins who would have to program the devices into a Mobile Device Management (MDM) system. Generally, the admins would redirect the enrollment to the end users, who will need to co

​Think Before You Wipe: Destroying Mobile Data Is Just One Option for Missing Devices


Modern day organizations provide employees the flexibility to work from anywhere around the office, such as the workstation, cafeteria, or meeting rooms. When employees use mobile devices to do work, they will store data on them. And, when employees move around with these devices, there is a fair chance a few of the devices will get lost. When an employee reports the loss of a mobile device, you might immediately want to wipe the data stored on it. But a data wipe must be done only after confirming the loss of the device. Otherwise, it can cause work redundancy or affect productivity.

As an IT admin, you don’t need to press the panic button immediately when you hear about a device loss. Depending on
