Learn the about the benefits of Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Updated over a week ago

What is MDM?

Businesses today rely heavily on mobile devices like laptops and tablets to stay productive. Whether it's for communication, accessing business applications, or managing sensitive information, these devices have become indispensable tools in our hybrid work environments over the last several years.

With this increased reliance comes the need for robust security measures to protect sensitive data and ensure continuous operations. This is where Mobile Device Management (MDM) provided through the Electric IT Hub steps up to support you.

MDM will manage, monitor, and secure devices within your organization. Installing MDM allows your organization to take advantage of specific MDM security policies elected by Electric’s Endpoint Management team. These policies are informed by 7+ years of data and experience across hundreds of deployments for SMBs – giving you access out of the box to expertise of policies that support your business best. After setting up MDM, and getting it deployed from our Electric Desktop App, policies go to work ensuring devices are used securely and in compliance with the organization’s standards.

How Do I Get MDM Working for My Business?

Your first step is to let Electric know if you are using Windows, Mac, or a mixed environment of device hardware in the Settings section of the platform. This will begin a workflow for you to configure your business’ specific environment. While there are a few steps to get started, don’t get too stressed about this process taking up your time – you’ll only need to do this process once at the beginning of your IT journey with us.

Once all the necessary steps are completed, all users will be able to download and install the Electric Desktop App. Electric operates with your privacy in mind. We only access device analytics and apply your MDM policies, we never look at your personal data or browsing history.

Why is MDM Valuable?

Implementing MDM not only enhances security but also offers several benefits, including:

  • Employee Productivity: With MDM, employees can safely use their mobile devices for work-related tasks without compromising security. MDM also works to facilitate the deployment of apps and software updates, reducing downtime for employees.

  • Cost Savings: By allowing employees to use their own devices, exchange devices, reuse devices from former employees, or buy devices on the fly if need be, businesses can reduce needing to buy a new device every time. When deployed, MDM ensures these personal and new devices alike are managed and secured effectively.

  • Centralized Management: MDM applied from the Electric IT Hub provides your admins with a single destination to view all devices within the organization. This simplifies the management process, reduces administrative overhead, and ensures consistency in policy enforcement.

  • Improved Visibility: With MDM, organizations can easily monitor and report on compliance with security policies and regulatory requirements. This not only reduces the risk of penalties but also builds trust with customers and partners by demonstrating a commitment to data security.
