How would MDM prevent cyber attacks?

Data breaches and leaks have become a common event in the past couple of years, but the cause is usually something trivial. Most of the breaches are due to human negligence. The repercussions of a data breach could take a huge toll on the company, both on its bank and its image.

A Mobile Device Management (MDM) is used to manage and secure all the devices used within an enterprise. By using an MDM or (Unified Endpoint Management) UEM we can factor out the negligent user, by setting in place restrictions and policies for the user to follow, besides with Identity and Access Management (IAM) features. Implementing a Multi-Factor Authentication can prevent a majority of hacking breaches. Most MDM solutions also offer a device encryption feature that further decreases the chances of cyber-attacks. If the managed device were to be stolen, you can track down its location or in the worst-case scenario wipe the device.

In the case of BYOD devices, a containerization feature helps separate work-related data from personal data which prevents any accidental data leaks. We can also implement Wi-Fi and VPN policies to securely connect to the internet.
