Achieve department-specific device baselines by leveraging directory and automated groupings.
Enhance security by applying restrictions on device functions, networks, apps, and more.
Disable copy and paste, screenshots, and cloud syncing for the entire device or just between the personal and corporate spaces in BYOD environments.
Configure mailboxes, calendars, and contacts on devices with dedicated profiles.

We just recently upgraded about 100 devices, and the fact that you can set groups and policies and push content and apps to the devices automatically reduced 80% of the migration time, where it would have taken weeks to complete this task without an MDM. The geofencing and location tracking are also bonuses.

I really like how easy it is to deploy and have devices set up and ready for users. I can have a new phone set up for a user in under seven minutes, and most of that time is me having to get all the apps set up to work with our systems.

With the rapid increase in the use of mobile devices for work, it has become necessary to bring these devices under corporate management to ensure enterprise data is secure and devices are compliant with industry standards. Profiles on mobile devices allow IT admins to configure device settings and functionalities by enforcing corporate policies and security restrictions on the smartphones, tablets, and laptops used by the workforce.
Mobile profile management allows IT admins to create and distribute device management profiles and policies to the mobile endpoints used in the organization. Through profile management, it is possible to create OS- and device-specific configuration profiles, enforce them on a single device or a group of devices, and modify them or delete them when required. In essence, IT admins will be able to modify their enterprise's device settings remotely and in bulk with mobile profile management.
Using mobile profiles, IT admins can ensure devices have strong passcodes set on them and that they do not automatically connect to unsafe public Wi-Fi networks. Profiles can help admins configure the email and VPN settings and restrict device functionalities, like Bluetooth, the camera, and the microphone, to further protect the corporate data on devices from leaks. These configuration profiles can also be used to block access to malicious web content and unapproved apps and to prevent users from uninstalling the required apps from their devices.
By enforcing security policies and restrictions on mobile devices using profiles, IT admins can not only ensure the mobile devices used within their organization are work-ready, and meet compliance requirements but also secure the corporate data on these devices while preventing device misuse. Therefore, mobile profile management ensures that corporate data is securely handled on devices that are enhanced for work and compliant with organizational and international data security standards.
Using profiles, admins can lock down mobile devices to a specific app or set of apps and restrict their functionalities, allowing them to serve a single purpose effectively. Dedicated devices, like point-of-sale devices, digital signage, and kiosk devices, can be provisioned using kiosk profiles. These profiles allow a device's wallpaper, layout, and font to be customized to further enhance the user experience. The advantages of using a kiosk mobile profile are that multiple devices can be provisioned as kiosks quickly and over the air. Devices provisioned as kiosks can always be brought back to their normal state by simply disassociating the kiosk profile.
Mobile profile management is a major component of mobile device management, with MDM solutions often used as profile management applications to create, distribute, and enforce security policies and restrictions on the managed devices in organizations. Through the MDM console, IT admins can create multiple device configuration profiles, modify them, associate them with a single device or group of devices, and disassociate them when they are no longer required.
