Mobile device management and mobile application management services are nearly essential resources for businesses that want to control their mobile devices.
Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) November 25, 2014
Grudi Associates is now providing businesses with complete mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) services to achieve greater control of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. MDM and MAM offer a wide range of advantages throughout the lifecycles of mobile devices.
“Mobile device management and mobile application management services are nearly essential resources for businesses that want to control their mobile devices," says Walt Grudi, President of Grudi Associates, a leading provider of telecom and IT services in Central PA and beyond. "Throughout the device lifecycles, they provide essential security measures, dramatically reduce risk, add efficiency and deliver cost savings.”
Mobile device management solutions are designed to ensure the security of mobile devices and provide appropriate support, maintenance and monitoring. The right system manages devices through their entire lifecycles, starting with provisioning, setup and activation and continuing with maintenance, updates and recycling at the end of their useful lives.
Mobile application management is the delivery and management of enterprise software for all mobile devices, including business-owned and personal smartphones, tablets, etc. Software selection, provisioning, delivery, licensing, configuration, security, maintenance, tracking and policy enforcement are among its functions. Effective MAMs ensure that individual users have only authorized applications and access, and enables IT staff to remotely wipe business mobile apps and data. This helps prevent breaches when a device is stolen, lost or compromised.
“Today’s mobile devices help staff to work more efficiently, but they also put businesses at risk of a wide range of mobile threats," says Grudi. "MDM and MAM effectively address these risks.”
MDM and MAM solutions typically include:
Deployment of Mobile Devices and Applications
Key benefits include:
Significantly greater security
Loss prevention from compromised data and unauthorized network access
Improved compliance with industry, agency and other requirements
Increased efficiency by providing IT and other staff with an effective tool
Cost savings from improved efficiency and device optimization
Inventory control for efficiency and cost savings
Improved management decision making
Enhanced policy monitoring and enforcement
“There are a variety of MDM/MAM service options, but a complete, integrated mobile device management and mobile application management solution is most effective," says Grudi. "A comprehensive approach is the best option for most companies.”
Implementing a mobile device management and mobile application management takes careful planning and setup. Making the process seamless and well-understood by the business’s mobile users and support departments is a key success factor. Enlisting professional assistance is recommended if the necessary in-house expertise is not in place.
