"IT teams are scrambling to keep up with the influx of mobile devices, of all types and platforms, both company and personally owned," said Lorna Garey, content director of InformationWeek Reports, in a statement. "A policy is important, but for IT to put teeth into rules absolutely requires mobile device management technology. Without it, you're flying blind."
Moreover, the mobile device management guide also discusses the similarities and differences among MDM products outlining essential features, such as the ability to manage devices remotely, archive communications records, back up content, integrate with enterprise directories and perform geo-location tracking.
