With the growing proliferation of mobile devices and bring-your-own-device (BYOD), mobile device management (MDM) is currently one of the hottest growth areas in the enterprise space, according to Ilan Rubin, managing director of Wavelink.

With the growing proliferation of mobile devices and bring-your-own-device (BYOD), mobile device management (MDM) is currently one of the hottest growth areas in the enterprise space, according to Ilan Rubin, managing director of Wavelink.
“IDC estimates that the global mobile worker population will approach 1.2 billion in 2013. Organisations will have to face up to the challenge of how to secure and manage the billions of mobile devices used by workers while effectively protecting the entire mobile enterprise,” Rubin warns.
He adds that while BYOD can mean reduced hardware costs to an organisation, as users pay for their own devices, these are often outweighed by greater costs of managing a range of disparate devices. Rubin recommends implementing a cost-effective, automated MDM platform as this not only ensures a more secure environment, but also reduces additional management costs.
He recommends a MDM solution that covers management of all elements in a mobile device’s life cycle from initial configuration and provisioning to monitoring and security through to decommissioning at the end of life.
