Why your organization needs Mobile Threat Defense even with MDM
Employees are increasingly working on mobile devices, so organizations must safeguard sensitive enterprise data from cyber threats that exploit mobile users, apps and devices. Organizations have deployed mobile device management (MDM) and mobile app management (MAM) solutions to support mobile users, but often mistakenly believe these management tools are sufficient to protect them from cyber threats.
MDM and MAM lack insight into app characteristics, and cannot provide detection or protection against cyber threats and user behaviors. Rather, these management tools are for administration to set baseline management profiles for mobile devices and apps used within an organization. MDM and MAM lack the ability to dynamically react to mobile cybersecurity threats, and provide continuous visibility of device health and trust.
Only MTD, with or without the use of MDM, can detect and block mobile cybersecurity threats from harming an organization.
