As workers rely more and more on mobile technology, more companies are considering a centralized mobile device management (MDM) solution. Understanding MDM is now a key skill for any IT administrator. Join author Sean Colins as he reviews exactly what MDM is and how organizations use it to control an entire ecosystem of smartphones and tablets. Dig into how MDM works on company-owned devices and in one-to-one, BYOD, and shared models. Learn how to enroll devices and manage profiles, and deploy applications to Apple, Android, and Windows devices without user involvement. Explore "over the air" management, security and control best practices, and storage planning. Sean also describes how to remotely wipe and unlock mobile devices, and set important restrictions. Finally, Sean will preview a number of the MDM vendors, including ZuluDesk and AirWatch, so you can choose the right solution for your organization.
