What is MDM enrollment?

Enrollment is one of the first moves to trigger and initiate device lifecycle management using an MDM solution. With enrollment, a device gets registered with your organization, allotted to users and granted access to work resources from virtually anywhere. Management policies would be applied to the device after enrollment for certain performance and security enhancements. The device functionality would be optimized to minimize downtime and improve user productivity.

Different methods are out there for MDM enrollment according to the on-boarding scenarios. Sometimes the device has to be pre-configured before allocating them to users. In such cases, the devices would be enrolled with MDM in advance and assigned to the users at a later time. In other instances, the users themselves would kick off the enrollment process. Here, the user assignment would be done during the onboarding process itself. Enrollment methods also vary according to the device type, number and OS platform.

Hexnode MDM supports a variety of enrollment options ranging from simple manual enrollment via email invites to quick and absolutely hands-free automated MDM enrollment options. In all these cases, the enrollment will be done either using an app or from the web, and this will vary according to the OS platform on which the device is running.
