Identifying mobile devices on a network is a growing challenge. An organization's need to manage mobile devices increases as Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) and enterprise mobile device programs become more commonplace. Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions are gaining popularity in an attempt to improve the security of mobile device policies. By integrating SecurityCenter with implemented MDM platforms, organizations can more effectively monitor the presence of mobile devices in their network.
The Mobile Summary report assists security teams in understanding the presence of mobile devices in the network. New devices are tracked by date based on their first connection. A series of tables show the detailed information about devices registered to an organization’s MDM solution during each year. Nessus and SecurityCenter support scanning of mobile devices using MDM solutions. The supported MDM solutions are currently Apple Profile Manager, Microsoft ActiveSync, VMWare AirWatch, MobileIron MDM, and Good Technology MDM.
