Mobile Device Management (MDM) Policies – Best Practices GuideSource: MaaS360 by Fiberlink
This white paper from MaaS360 by Fiberlink covers the best policies they have discovered while working with their extensive list of customers that that can help IT with effective Mobile Device Management (MDM). These include knowing your industry’s regulations, requiring passcodes, enforcing encryption, restricting device features as necessary, keeping a watchful eye on apps, using TouchDown for setting up email on Android devices, distributing settings over the air (OTA), warning policy violators first, then remediating policy violations, testing your policies, and monitoring your devices.
Keep your policies simple. Most companies only have a few policies and often settings for policies will be the same. Industry requirements will often dictate how you set up your policies.
The first policy this white paper covers deals with knowing your industry’s regulations. Industry regulations will govern many decisions you make regarding mobile devices and corporate network access by personal devices. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) are two examples of industry regulations that must be taken into account in the healthcare industry.
