Here, we compare the nine latest MDM tools along with their features to help you choose the right one for your requirements


Some Open Source MDM Software
Platform(s) Supported  iOS
Enterprise iOS Controller is a small and simple open source project created by Haruhiko Nishi. It allows remote security policy enforcement on iOS 4 and 5 devices whose MS Exchange settings are configured to point to the server. Compared to other MDM solutions, such as those offered by Apple, it is very primitive. The Enterprise iOS Controller uses the ActiveSync technology, particularly the mobile device management commands. It allows remote security policy enforcement (including camera and Safari browser control) and remote wiping. The data synchronisation of ActiveSync for Tasks, Calendar and Mail forwarding is not yet supported, but would be added later. You may also try to develop it yourself with the help of published source code.
Platform: All mobile devices
The server enables data synchronisation (contacts, calendars, tasks and notes, media, files) between mobile devices, PCs, the cloud, back-end data sources, and clients like Outlook, Gmail and Facebook. It also supports push email to client devices. Since the data is synced in the cloud, end users can view and edit their PIM data via an AJAX web portal. The Device Management (DM) functionality provides device management capabilities for a wide range of devices, specifically supporting 3G- and 4G-capable devices. Supported devices can include smartphones, residential gateways, USB data dongles, and mobile data enabled video cameras and even smart power metres.

    Why was the Swiss MDM provider APPTEC not listed? I tested most of the solutions from the manufacturers and APPTEC was much better. I would revise the list of MDM vendors so that interested parties could see another important MDM vendor.

      Daniels, I don’t understand either. We also use the MDM software from apptec and it’s our favorite.
