More and more companies are looking to introduce mobile devices into their infrastructure, thanks to the increasing capabilities of phones and IoT devices. However, this growth in mobile adoption requires that businesses adopt a sophisticated mobility management solution to secure and control the devices in their infrastructure.
If your company is planning to deploy more mobile devices in 2020, or already has a large number of devices in your infrastructure, it needs a solid mobility management solution to manage those devices. We’ve listed the reasons why your enterprise needs mobility management in the new year.

It also lists questions you should ask yourself and prospective vendors before you choose a solution.
Unifying management for mobile devices
With the number of devices deployed in the corporate world, businesses can’t view management on a device-by-device basis anymore. Enterprises need to be able to deliver security mandates and policies to all of their mobile devices from a single, centralized solution. An enterprise mobility management (EMM) deployment allows administrators to manage all their mobile devices through one piece of software, connecting to agents installed locally on devices.
Enabling a BYOD policy
Bring your own device (BYOD) policies continue to be a popular plan for companies that use mobile devices. By allowing employees to bring in their own devices to work, companies don’t need to worry about training them in a device that they’re unfamiliar with. However, in order for a BYOD plan to work, companies need to be able to manage every device that employees bring in, regardless of operating system or manufacturer. Mobility management solution providers ensure that your admins can deliver updates to any connected mobile device, allowing your company to protect itself from any potential security concerns.
Providing remote mobile management capabilities
Mobile devices can be deployed and operated from anywhere, which can make it difficult for businesses to monitor and keep track of all their corporate devices. Enterprise mobility management tools deliver security mandates to devices wherever they are, and also provide other remote mobile management features for companies like remote data wiping and device locking.
IoT device management
As mobility management solutions become more advanced, they’ve gone beyond simply keeping track of business phones and tablets. Enterprises need a solution to manage their Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and many top level enterprise mobility management and unified endpoint management (UEM) tools offer support for common IoT devices. By having a solution that can manage both mobile devices and IoT deployments, enterprises can reduce overhead costs and ensure that all their devices are secured.
