Mobile Device Management is a critical component of any company’s mobile strategy and Windows Phone 8 can be managed through Microsoft and 3rd party MDM vendor solutions.
With Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) support, Windows Phone 8 can be managed via Exchange Server on-premise and Office 365 in the cloud. As I’ve discussed in previous articles, EAS provides an enterprise with a baseline level of capabilities to manage BYOD scenarios that need to support a wide range of smartphones.
I’m also pleased to announce MDM support from leading 3rd party vendors including MobileIron, Symantec, Zenprise, and AirWatch. Here are a few of their press releases:
- AirWatch Unveils Comprehensive Device and Application Management Features for Windows Phone 8 Devices
- MobileIron Supports Windows Phone 8 Apps and Devices
- Symantec Provides Day 1 Support for Windows Phone 8 to Protect the Mobile Enterprise
- Zenprise Supports New Enterprise Mobility Era
As an MDM veteran, I’m thrilled to see comprehensive management support for Windows Phone 8 and look forward to seeing new additions to our list of 3rd party vendor support for our amazing enterprise device.
