AT&T Offers Mobile Device Management Facilities to Small Businesses

By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

Recently, MDM expanded its cloud-based Mobile Device Management offering with solutions for small businesses with a reliable list of features. According to the company, these features were previously available only to larger enterprise customers.

Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions from AT&T (News - Alert) offer users maximum flexibility across wireless providers. MDM assists in solving the problems of an expanding mobile perimeter and ensure the safe use of mobilized information.

AT&T provides expertise and implementation services for application monitoring, enterprise inventory, expense, loss, theft and security.

Making it easier for the company to enforce management policies and allow its workers mobile access, AT&T MDM solutions enable small businesses to easily manage employees' mobile devices and data usage.

Small business owners need not invest in deploying hardware to support the service, as it's hosted and managed by AT&T with the help of cloud-based MDM.

AT&T's small business team assists business owners in deciding and developing their mobility policy and strategy, and offers support to select, deploy, host and manage an MDM solution.

“Small businesses often lack the IT resources to maintain control over dozens of different smartphones and tablets, stretching their time and budget to the limit,” said Chris Hill, vice president, Advanced Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business and Home Solutions. “That's where AT&T MDM solutions can help, freeing small business owners to concentrate on doing what they do best – running their companies."

In 2011, the company lashed out at the FCC (News - Alert) in its response to the Commission calling its report about its potential T-Mobile merger “unfair” and “biased.” AT&T announced last spring it was looking to buy T-Mobile (News - Alert) USA for $39 billion, but the agreement has had to go through a great deal of opposition from the U.S. Government.
