Mobile Device Management – What must a solution achieve?

It seems like smartphones and tablets can turn their hand to almost anything these days. Mobile devices have now become the best way to carry out standard tasks such as reading your emails or searching the Internet. It's no wonder that sales figures are always hitting new records. These devices are increasingly being used to supplement conventional Windows clients in both consumer and business environments. For IT employees, this means that all of these devices are accessing the company network and company data. The result is that mobile devices and platforms, such as iOS, Android, or Windows Phone 8 need to be managed reliably, in addition to the PC clients and server. It is therefore not surprising that mobile device management has developed into one of the most important tasks for IT departments.
