Mobile Device Management, or MDM, is the process of using a software program to secure, manage, monitor and support mobile devices deployed across an organization. Mobile devices include but are not limited to tablet computers, smart phones, ruggedized mobile computers, mobile printers, and mobile phones. MDM includes both company owned devices and BYOD (bring your own device) which are mobile devices owned by an employee but used for work. 

Employees are increasingly able to access company data through the use of mobile devices, making it necessary for companies to establish a system of mobile monitoring. Companies need to achieve a balance: enabling employees to be more productive by allowing them to use mobile devices while at the same time, securing and monitoring company data. Mobile device management can reduce support costs and reduce business risks when deployed properly.
