Time is flying by, and 2023 is already knocking at your front door. It’s the time of the year when you reminisce about everything that happened to you over the last year and decide how you want your 2023 to be. Time to pick up a new hobby, create a new business plan, or even start the exercise routine you have been planning to start for a long time.
With all the changes you plan to implement in your personal and work life, this might also be an excellent time to rethink your device management strategy. You might think you don’t necessarily need a device management solution or your current solution is good enough. However, that opinion might change once I elucidate Hexnode’s management features and why it is the best remote device management software for you in 2023. So, stick around a bit more😉.
Things to consider while selecting a remote device management software
There is plenty of software out there that can help you with managing your devices over the air. However, determining which one checks off all your requirements will be the pivotal step in determining how efficient your device management strategy would be. So, let’s consider some key factors while selecting your ideal remote device management software.
Device management options vary with the platforms on which your devices run. There is specialized device management software for each platform such as Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, etc. However, it is always better to choose software that lets you manage multiple platforms simultaneously, like Hexnode. Hexnode supports all the above mentioned platforms, including tvOS, iPadOS, and Fire OS. Another aspect to consider here is your fleet’s total number of devices. Be sure to check whether the device management software you are planning to choose can accommodate your entire device fleet.
What is the primary use case of your devices? For example, is it for the employees to fulfill their work-related activities? Or is it for any other dedicated cause- such as kiosks or digital signages? Whatever the purpose, the rule of thumb is to test it out with various device management software and find the alternative for your enterprise.
Your corporate data falling into the wrong hands can put you in serious trouble. Some of the significant security requirements that enterprises look for are device encryption, restricting user privileges, managing device apps, and system wipe in case of theft.
As I have already mentioned, Hexnode would be the exact tool you need if you are looking for robust remote device management software. Apart from having comprehensive platform support, Hexnode also boasts of its advanced kiosk capabilities and security management.
Ease of use and setup
The wide range of enrollment options lets you set up your devices with Hexnode in a breeze. The key highlight is the Zero-touch enrollment options that let you onboard your devices hands-free, even in bulk numbers. For instance, Hexnode supports Apple’s Automated Device Enrollment, Android Zero-touch enrollment, Samsung Knox Mobile Enrollment, and ROM-based enrollment.
As far as ease of use is concerned, Hexnode comes with a clean interface that is easy for users to navigate. In addition, the Get started assistant gives you a complete product walkthrough as soon as you log in. So, even if you are a new MDM user, you’ll feel right at home.
In a corporate environment, security is essential in multiple domains. Hexnode’s multi-faceted security management solution is designed just for that. It can help you secure your devices, data and applications. You can remotely secure your devices with multiple lines of defense, from enforcing passwords to encryption. Even in cases of theft, you can remotely wipe and lock down your devices to prevent your data from falling into the wrong hands.
Configuring network settings in your devices is a task that might take quite some time if done manually. Hexnode lets you remotely connect the devices to your enterprise Wi-Fi and VPN in seconds. It also includes provisions such as VPN On Demand (automatically connecting to VPN when on specific networks) and Per-App VPN (establishing a VPN connection only for specific apps) to customize the network settings further.
Enterprise content management enables you to utilize an organization’s content efficiently. Along with providing uncompromised security against breaches, it also gives you a fluid content distribution system. With this, you can ensure the right people get access to the right content on time.
Hexnode lets you have complete control over all aspects of application management. Starting from remote app installation and uninstallation, you can also control in-app configurations and permissions. In addition, the Volume Purchase Program (VPP) integration with Hexnode lets you purchase, deploy and manage applications in bulk too.
Configuring user accounts on devices is a nightmare for all IT admins. However, it won’t be tedious if the devices are enrolled in Hexnode. Be it 10s or 100s of devices, it can be configured with respective user accounts with a single click, using wildcards. Hexnode supports accounts management for email, calendar, google accounts, Exchange ActiveSync, etc.
Remote actions are extremely useful when you want to execute some actions remotely for multiple devices. Some of the remote actions available with Hexnode are;
- Locking the device
- Wipe device
- Remote ring
- Enabling and disabling personal hotspot
- Broadcast messaging
- Power off device
- Restart device
Hexnode can let you customize your device screens. For example, it lets you change wallpapers, screensavers, the layout of your home screen, and so on. There is also a provision to install extra fonts on iOS devices.
Remote troubleshooting is a beneficial tool for providing real-time assistance to your employees. You can view the problems happening at the device end remotely, assume control, and solve them using the remote troubleshooting feature.
I run a manufacturing industry; do I still need a remote device management solution?
Yes! If you are running a manufacturing industry, you would be aware of the revolution of ruggedized devices, substituting most consumer-grade devices.
