What does MDM stand for?

Mobile device management

MDM is short for “Mobile device management”, a system that helps to manage and safeguard mobile devices and computers that employees use. This kind of system is often put in place in businesses by the IT department, especially for those employees who are working from a distance.

This sort of mobile device management gives the IT administrators the power to control the devices that are connecting to the company’s network. It also offers security features that ensure the safety of data that these devices send and receive. MDM has several key roles like making sure emails and documents on the device are secure, setting up various mobile devices to work together, fixing issues from a distance, and keeping an eye on company equipment.

MDM software can be set up at the company’s main office or it can be cloud-based. It’s a crucial system for big companies to securely and effectively allow their employees to work from a distance. This is particularly handy for employees who need to Work From Home (WFH) or who need to be at a remote site for work.
