MobiDev Releases 2022 Mobile Device Management Guide

MDM (Mobile Device Management) software offers methods to quickly deploy, integrate and monitor a network of certain smartphones or tablets. Ideally, MDM should provide a way to monitor mobile devices as easily as desktop computers. There are MDM systems for all mobile operating systems, including cross-platform ones, but this guide focuses on Android as the only operating system that offers full-fledged customization in terms of MDM.

There are three ways to implement MDM with the Android Management API:

1. Work profile. A dedicated account on a device that stores and transfers corporate data without affecting personal data. MDM policies are also applied to profile data only.
2. Managed device, a smartphone or tablet enrolled with MDM.
3. Dedicated device, a separate device used with restricted functionality. For example, it can be a tablet used as a bulletin board.

The system allows enrolling target devices over-the-air, which means no cables are required. You can use a wireless connection to enroll and manage mobile devices on Android.

The registration process for the Google MDM platform imposes several requirements:

– Android device version 6.0 or higher
– Access to Google Cloud Platform
– Enabling Android Management API in Google Cloud Platform

Once all the requirements are met, there are two ways to enroll your devices: a quick start procedure suggested by Google and a more advanced method to complete the setup is to create your own MDM solution based on Google’s API .
