Mobile Device Management and Best Practices

Contributed by Adam Phelps

With the year 2014 slowly coming and quickly fading, the need to have the latest and greatest mobile device has become the new standard. Wireless speeds are increasing, Random Access Memory (RAM) is tripling, and processing time is becoming faster with half the size and power than in previous models. Moore’s law has been proven yet again. But what does this mean for those who use these fast devices for work through a company loan? How do you limit what an employee’s personal devices can access on the corporate network? What happens to the data when they leave? Who governs these rules and what is to become of them? In this paper, I plan to define what it takes to have good Mobile Device Management (MDM) policies and procedures in a corporate setting, and what a company should do to follow MDM best practices.
