    iPad and Android MDMs

    Hello,

    What Mobile Device Management tools are being used? We're about to have a look at Lightspeed are there other MDMs aimed specifically at the Educational market?

    Cheers

    Giles.

    Google apps is ok for the basics, remote wiping devices, enforcing passwords/encryption, turning off cameras, application auditing etc.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll have a look at both of these, though i think the management would prefer local mangement over cloud.

    cheers

    I've heard good things about AirWatch but not seen it used in anger yet.

    Any idea if this is included in EES licensing like Endpoint Security or is there a per device licensing cost?

    Had a demo of Airwatch and it looked really good but at 12 per year per device it is prohibitively expensive for our school.

    Not sure about EES and InTune - you'd need to speak to a reseller I think...
