Modern organizations are thriving on the principles of enterprise mobility as most of their employees depend on the usage of mobile devices to carry out their day-to-day work, from anywhere and anytime. As more and more companies are realizing the growing significance of managing and securing the corporate as well as employee-owned devices at work, the value of a Mobile Device Management solution is getting more prominent. However, at the same time, several companies are striving to leverage a secure and remote team communication app for business purposes. This blog will talk about why companies should go for an MDM that also facilitates strong and secure team communication.
