Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a broad set of security features that give organisations as much control over corporate smartphones and tablets as they do over traditional PC devices. One of the most popular features within MDM is Mobile Application Management (MAM).

Thanks to Intune, some MDM features are already bundled into some Microsoft 365 packages.

MDM can also be used to enable and enforce bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies on personal smartphones and tablets, in addition to controlling corporate devices.

It’s all operated by Atlas Cloud’s remote helpdesk.


When you get into it, there’s a lot you can do to monitor sensitive or intellectual property being shared to both personal and corporate mobile phones and tablets.


Enforce specific apps to be installed on devices, meaning you can ensure employees are using company-approved apps to deal with corporate data.


Ban specific apps or groups of apps from being installed on devices, meaning you can stop employees using un-approved apps to deal with corporate data.

Device locator

Use device GPS systems to locate lost or stolen devices and track a device’s location history, making it easier to recover lost devices.

Remote device wipe

Delete all data and settings on any device under management, effectively eliminating the risk of data breaches in the event is lost or stolen devices.

System management

Remotely lock the screen, configure system settings or reset passwords on devices for enhanced security measures.

Combine with software

When combined with sophisticated cloud software licences like Microsoft Office 365, you can enforce access to things like email to the dedicated Outlook application and turn off features like file sharing outside of the Microsoft application ecosystem.

Differentiate Corporate and Personal Devices

While it’s natural for corporate-supplied devices to have high levels of compliance policy applied to them, it might not be as necessary for personal devices that access corporate information.
But personal devices do access important and potentially sensitive corporate information, so you can still configure a level of compliance that’s comfortable and acceptable for everyone.


Smartphones and tablets are as common in the workplace as traditional PCs. They store all kinds of corporate information on them – through access to email, calendars and file share applications – which could include intellectual property, sensitive, or personally identifiable information.
Most organisations seek to protect this information when stored on corporate PC’s or on-premises servers because they’re required to do so by law. However, mobile devices are often ignored because the technology is newer and there’s a perception that they’re far more difficult to manage.
