Mobile Device Management for a Mobile Workforce

As a growing number of company employees start accessing the company data from mobile devices, data security using Mobile Device Management is more critical than ever.

Mobile Device Management or MDM is now a 'built-in feature' of Office 365 for all subscriptions and included at no extra cost. 

This is a great feature as it can help secure and manage mobile devices like iPhones, iPads and Android devices in your organization. 

Policies can be created to protect O365 email and documents. together with Security, Encryption, Jail broken and Cloud settings.

If a device is lost or stolen, private data in Office 365 One Drive for the organisation can be easily removed or in an extreme circumstance the device can be remotely wiped back to its factory settings by either the user or an Office 365 administrator. 

The mobile device will automatically be added to the MDM interface when an Office 365 App or Outlook App is added to the device and the device user signs in to the app as a licensed Office 365 user.

As more mobile devices are brought into organisations by employees who access the company’s critical data, it's important this data can then be managed remotely when devices go missing or an employee leaves the organisation.
