Mobile Device Management (MDM) app

The ManageEngine MDM app is the companion app that gets installed on the device, when the device is enrolled to ManageEngine Mobile Device Manager Plus. It acts as the agent app and is used in the agent-server communication required for continued management of devices. For Apple and Windows device management, MDM leverages the native MDM client already present on the devices, while in case of Android, ME MDM app is mandatorily installed during device enrollment to function as a mobile agent app. Users can also download the ME MDM app from the Play Store to enroll devices using Self Enrollment
