Have a look at Mobile Device Management | MobileIron
In the very near future we are getting some android tablets for students to use. We already have iPhones, iPads which the SMT use. These are currently un-managed but with the addition of the Android devices I am thinking we are going to need an MDM. Now I’ve done a bit of research and looked at the ones mentioned on here in previous posts. However none seem to offer me what I want and I am hoping that somebody may be able to help me find one that does. I’m after the following from an MDM:
• Ability to manage all platforms, (iOS, OS X, Android, Windows, Blackberry)
• App Management
• Enforcing use of passcodes etc.
• Ability to ‘push’ firmware upgrades to them
• Remote wipe
• Asset & Inventory Management
I was doing the Meraki CMNA yesterday - I have to say it was very good and the MDM within this (free) is also very powerful.
We use Meraki here for our iPads am am very happy with it, but I wouldn't be confident using it for Android. I use it at home to manage our family devices, and my wife's Galaxy S2 constantly stops talking to the Meraki servers. Every time I remove and re-add it, it will stop checking in a few days later. Meraki support haven't been able to track the problem down, and it never happens on my HTC One X.
Meraki MDM is free and works well. Airwatch is worth looking into as an affordable enterprise grade alternative. There's only so many hooks you can use so most MDM products will have the same features.
Meraki is very nice, it allows you to push app's to the iPads etc
we have used to Soti Mobicontrol to help customers in the past...
We use Meraki for our iPads and Nexus 7s and it works very well especially on the iPads, which have more management options than Android devices. The ability to important activation codes for Apple apps, which are then used up as they are installed by each device is extremely useful.
It will then set you up with a systems manager account. One thing to bear in mind is that there is a list of required outbound ports to be allowed which you may require your LEA to open (if its LEA managed). More info here - URGENT - INFO REQUIRED
Does Meraki manage Ipads on multiple sites through the local wifi/lan? We've got 80 sites and couple of hundred wifi subnets.
