The rapid evolution of MDM solutions
Mobile device management (MDM) continues to grow at a feverish pace, both in terms of adoption and mobile security features. BYOD policies, and the rapid turnover in consumer mobile technology, have left many organizations grappling with MDM requirements.
Our June cover story provides insight into the mobility adoption trends, cross-industry issues, and MDM solutions best fit to varying requirements. Technology advances range from nascent network-based mobile device management (NMDM) to software-based approaches such as mobile application management (MAM), native container device management, and more. We also look at big data analytics and security this month, and how early adopters are expanding the definition of risk to all part of the business. Finally, we provide an update on FedRAMP. Does it go far enough, and how will the continuous monitoring of cloud service providers be handled?
