Is Mobile Device Management (MDM) still needed?

For the last several years the topic of MDM has filled blog posts and news articles. With all the enhancements to operating systems and hardware platforms, I often hear the following question, “Do we still need MDM? And if so why?” The simple answer is YES! While many device and operating system manufactures are building some of the common MDM features into their products the fact is that there is no standard and it is almost impossible to get any organization to standardize on a single product set. As a result, IT organizations need a tool that will enable them to manage a broad range of devices from a single console. The solution is one of the many MDM tools available today. By managing all devices from a single console, IT managers can ensure that their entire asset population is adhering to the same security policies, running on a single version of the devices OS and easily access device health and usage data.
