What Is Telpo MDM?

Aug. 15, 2018



In case you're confused about what exactly MDM, as it's often referred to, is.


MDM is the abbreviation of Mobile Devices Management system.  It is an industry term for the administration of mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablet, laptops, and desktop computers. MDM is usually implemented with the use of third-party products that provide remote management capabilities for specific mobile device vendors in order to optimize the functionality and security of mobile devices.


Telpo MDM (Mobile Device Management) is an innovative platform to offer customers value-added service, such as terminal monitoring, application management, data service, location map, reporting, etc.

Newest Updates of MDM Platform

That's changed a bit from our last roundup, too. As with our previous roundup, the biggest challenge in this update was drawing a line between MDM and any other functionality, including app management and delivery, security features such as advanced endpoint threat management, and document protection. All of these vendors have many additional capabilities beyond basic MDM to get your attention.


Location of Mobile Device management


It's pretty obvious that a lost corporate mobile device represents a significant threat. Providing the ability to locate, lock, and potentially wipe lost devices must be available. Automating that process is even better. Many of the products reviewed here provide a geofencing capability which can generate alerts and take action should a device cross a specific boundary. This works great for a company with a local workforce where the devices should never be more than some fixed number of miles away from the home office. This feature can be tweaked for traveling employees and, in many cases, can be time restricted as well.

Policy-based security is pretty standard across all of the products in this roundup. Configuring devices to use a personal identification number (PIN) to lock the device is just one of many policies which can be set as mandatory. Other policies to restrict behavior or to lock down specific apps are also common. The boundaries get a little blurry when you move from corporate-owned devices to personally owned or the BYOD scenario. Having the ability to restrict the gathering of location and other sensitive data from a personally owned BYOD helps keep employees happy while letting them use their own devices for company work.

And the features of Telpo MDM as below:


Enrolling lots of devices might not seem like a big deal but it can be a showstopper without some type of automated process. Providing a connection to a local AD domain to process users is one method. Most of these products also offered a way to import users and devices from a flat file to streamline enrollment in the case where either users or devices aren't identified in a directory service.
