Profile Manager and Active Directory

Your rating: None

A checkmark must be added to Profile Manager regarding AD authentication.

I implemented Profile Manager at 2 client site where the users credentials to access Mydevices portal are their AD username and password. Work like a charm.

Also, their Exchange mailbox is automatically configured based on the login credential that they used.

BlackBerry Mobile Fusion

Your rating: None

While not a usual suspect, BlackBerry released the former Ubitexx product, now called BlackBerry Mobile Fusion Universal Device Service.
As far as iOS MDM goes it is on par with some of the others. I understand the upcoming service pack (1) will add all API (iOS5) allowed management functions. More info on: http://us.blackberry.com/business/software/mobilefusion/

RE: BlackBerry Mobile Fusion

Your rating: None

This actually can be a big threat in Enterprise Market. Existing BES customers will be lured by lucrative discounts.
Does everyone feels the same??

BlackBerry Mobile Fusion

Your rating: None

That is a very good point. I am still have mixed feeling if this product will help them or is a wasteful effort. In my own opinion, they RIM should have opened up the BES Server to other client platforms. Mr Heins should have gone to his development team on day 1 and said I want our BlackBerry client running on iOS, Android and WP7.x in 2 months, but instead they are banking that BlackBerry 10 OS and devices and Mobile Fusion will turn things around for them.

This is typical upper management not understanding the market and running a company down the tubes as Ex Nokia CEO OPK did from 2006 thru 2010.

Comparison Sheet Fantastic if only it had...

Your rating: None

Thanks so much for the comparison sheet, it's absolutely fantastic and a great help.

Of all the criteria, it would be great if you could easily see from all the other products:

1. Supports BYOD
2. Has Security Framework and is containerised

At the moment we're going through each one, hitting the vendors website if it's not mentioned or unclear to confirm that their application supports BYOD and is containerised so we can blow away the container without deleting any of the users personal data.

Support for BYOD is a real

Your rating: None

Support for BYOD is a real feature. Everyone of these MDM verndors will claim support for BYOD. You should make up for yourself what features you need to support BYOD and then decide which product(Drunk support what you need in this area.

As for the container: a container is not needed for preserving personal data. Most of the MDM solutions will support a partial wipe, wiping all enterprise data but conserving personal data. This is one of the features to support BYOD. The only real containerised solution I know of is Good Technology btw.

Excitor DME is another vendor

Your rating: None

Excitor DME is another vendor that does have a container and its separate app for corporate email, PIM and applications. Check it out www.excitor.com
Although partial wipe is possible with regular MDM vendors, it is just so easy to copy all corporate information through a privat account via gmail, icloud or dropbox that data is not well protected. The advantage of the container is that no data IS actually on the device.

Tabular form?

Your rating: None

Is a tabular form of the comparison available?

It'd be much simpler to think about if I could nix columns that don't concern me -- as well as columns for which all vendors are identical -- and filter only on columns that concern me.

Intending no disrespect to the person presenting this wonderfully compiled data, It's onerous to think about decisions while needing to keep track across several different paginations of what's going on.

A simple spreadsheet would be perfect. Surely that's how the information was originally compiled?

RIM MDM Comparison

Your rating: None

Would it be possible to consider inclusion of the RIM Fusion/BES 10 for comparison. Lots of noise in the market and options for customers as to whether they retain traditional BES infrastructure / Migrate to BES 10 / or Maintain BB Presence but use a CLoud MDM provider going forward.

I would also like to see more information on true comparison between MDM and Native Exchange policies in similar format to the comparison between traditional MDM providers. With SCMDM potentially offering alternatives for next year, how would this compare to MDM service providers offering.

Looks like the MDM market is finally a hot topic in the market with lots of new entrants, powerhouses such as Microsoft finally moving forward and RIM utilising their vast Corporate penetration to enable non BB devices.

How much Updating is being made to this review?

Your rating: None

I noticed that HP has updated their product / service portfolio and now offers an MDM marketed under "MoD - Mgt of Devices:
http://www8.hp.com/us/en/business-solutions/solution.html?compURI=109067...
as being novices in the MDM enterprise space thus far not sure how good or mature it could be ... but worth mentioning / adding I'd think... also, there are no cloud based services listed here... AT&T has AMS or AT&T Mobile Security cloud based MDM avail now as well and has been deployed with several entities ...
http://www.business.att.com/content/productbrochures/mobile-security-ser...

also LRW (Little Red Wagon) offers several key stop gaps that other MDM"s are using to leverage their gaps in sandbox or application secured solutions/content mgt that should be noted... fyi
http://www.lrwtechnologies.com/

also, the matrices has 3 cat in the key labeled as avail / not avail / coming soon, but many 'blanks' are left in them matrices ... what are those to mean? not avail / unknown? should really add that clarification...

Differentiator

Your rating: None

For iOS MDM vendor, there are only few differentiation if we consider MDM protocol based differentiation. How about 1) policy and setting based on LDAP or AD 2) Enterprise app that allow policy changes(I don't see that many case yet. I saw only Jail break detection ) 3) App life cycle management and securing 3) enterprise content delivery 4) enterprise browsing 5) enterprise single sign-on. I don't see many vendor support all of those but leading vendors are start supporting it.

help

Your rating: None

We are looking for an MDM solution that can do any of the below
features and ideally all of them.
1) Initiate a group of apps on iOS based off the time of day/week. For
example I want to allow certain apps to run certain times in the week
while all others are blocked. In corporate world the client I have
wants to run work applications only during work time and not outside
of work time. After work they could access any app they want including
the work applications. GPS wouldn't work because employees are always
in different location.
2) pass code restrictions - based off of a passcode the user would or
wouldn't have access to certain apps. This is ideal in parent/child
shared device. I don't want my kids having access to my business
applications so when they put in their "passcode" it blocks all my
business apps.
3) Limit hours of gameplay per day - this feature would only allow a
child to play a group of applications for a certain number of minutes
per day. This ideally would be based off passcode so that each child
only had so many minutes per day in a group of apps. Ideally parents
could assign the list of apps it applies to but still leave open
unlimited use of learning applications.

Play a Sound?

Your rating: None

Guys, I'm merely a user currently on Meraki so my apology if my question is overly basic. We have a issues with our employees misplacing their phones quite a bit, and the gps location in Meraki is spotty at best. But the biggest feature we seem to be lacking is the ability to play a sound on a device when lost to help them locate it. Do any of the MDM's listed offer this? I would think that would be the most basic of requests, but Meraki doesn't appear to be able to do more than send a message to the phone, lock or wipe.

Viewing an enterprise app (Remote Control)

Your rating: None

Regarding the question of enterprise app "control", there are two options. One is Apperian, which allows "wrapping" of any IOS app for remote control. No changes to the app are required. The other is SOTI, which enables control of an enterprise IOS app by building the app with an SDK.

Apperian is not considered an MDM solution, rather, it is an MAM (mobile app management) solution so is not on the standard product grid.

Re: Play a Sound?

Your rating: None

Hi DaYipper, I cannot comment on why Meraki (or any other app) would not play a sound, but from a support standpoint I would strongly suggest all users set up "Find My iPhone". This allows them to look at their own phone's location, play a sound, etc. It also will free up support for you, since if they leave it under their pile of clothes (or whatever) you don't have to get involved!

GPS Location

Your rating: None

@DaYipper Meraki relies on the IP address of the device, at least with iOS, to track its physical location. If you are looking for something more granular, you might try our product, SimpleMDM. SimpleMDM uses an on-device app to track the specific location of a device, as reported by iOS location services.

9.3 Educational Features

Your rating: None

Can we add to the MDM Comparison, if the MDM is ready for Apple 9.3 Educational Features?

"Apple Classroom" etc.

I use Casper , and We have "Apple Classroom" working , I think Heat is one other MDM that can do it. It would be nice to know which MDM's are ready for this.
