MDSL Launches New Version of Smart MDM at Mobile World Congress

London, New York, Paris, Gothenburg, Tokyo and Hong Kong – MDSL, a leading provider of global Telecom Expense Management (TEM) and Market Data Management solutions today announced that it will be launching a new version of its Smart MDM solution at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 in Barcelona, 24–27 February 2014.

MDSL’s new Smart MDM harnesses the core functions of AirWatch’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM) offering, and incorporates them into MDSL Smart TEM to create a single, fully integrated TEM and MDM/MAM platform.

The result is a solution which is greater than the sum of its parts and brings a number of benefits, primarily focused on maximising the customer’s return on investment.

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement has blurred the line between personal and business use, making it increasingly difficult for IT to control employees’ mobile devices and the applications running on them – as well as the associated costs.

Smart MDM addresses these issues, allowing the user simply and efficiently to:

  • Monitor applications across all devices
  • Maintain a catalogue of authorised corporate applications
  • Separate personal and company data, to safeguard corporate security and personal privacy
  • Add BYOD users to the agreed corporate rate plan
  • Monitor usage and behaviour, to enforce corporate usage policies
  • Manage devices, including remote device “wipe”, from within the Smart MDM Self-Service portal.

Ben Mendoza, MDSL CEO and founder, commented: “We are very pleased to be at MWC this year with AIrWatch. We have been admirers of their innovative solutions since their inception. We are therefore delighted to be sharing a platform with them and demonstrating our new set of integration tools.

“An increasing number of corporates are realising that BYOD is actually costing them money, and are looking for a way to integrate their existing MDM and MAM provision with a full expense management solution, to tell them exactly how much it is saving or costing them.”
