Our 74-point Comparison of Mobile Device Management Providers

No votes yet

You can't manage dozens, hundreds, or thousands of iOS devices without Mobile Device Management. Of the many providers, each provides the same basic features: inventory, mobileconfig, and basic management. So is there a difference among providers?

You betcha. From packaging, licensiing, support, scalability, enrollment and administration, the providers vary significantly. Some only manage mobile devices; others manage desktops. Some are only in the cloud, others are only in your data center.

Today we've re-released our Comparison of MDM Providers to include a full 74 points of reference. We hope it will serve to cut through the hype and help you make smart decisions.

Five vendors are included to start: Absolute Mange, Airwatch, Casper, Mobile Iron and McAfee EMM. We'll be adding others and filling in the gaps as we learn more. Your can help: edit the page (it is a wiki), or add comments, or E-mail me.

[Disclaimer: My employer Tekserve is a reseller of Casper and Airwatch (and we'd love to sell it to you!). Still, my goal is to maintain a chart that is as complete and unbiased as possible.]
