Mobile Device Management

MDM (Mobile Device Management) and Enhanced Web Filtering Service

Easily manage your devices across your school

The challenge


 
Mobile devices are increasingly the norm in schools. They give students access to anytime anywhere learning opportunities using a tool that keeps them engaged. Along with the benefits come some management challenges, to support teaching and learning and ensure the devices are used safely and appropriately.
 
The management, security and maintenance of mobile devices needs to be as easy as possible. Our service ensures that the devices are supporting learning goals and that both students and educators have the access and applications required for lessons and assignments.

 

The solution


 
Designed just for schools, the MDM solution makes it easy to manage devices distributed throughout your school and to maximise their educational benefits. Unique education-specific tools and policies ensure that managing mobile devices can be as simple as using them.

    The Benefits



What if apps or settings are missing from an iPad?
We can perform a remote repair of the device, and ensure that any missing settings or apps are re-applied.
 
What if a user gets locked out of their iPad or other iOS (Apple) device?
If a user is locked out we can initialise a remote unlock of the device.
 
What if an iPad or other iOS (Apple) device is lost or stolen?
We can perform a remote wipe of the device. This will automatically delete all data stored on the device the next time the device is connected to the internet.
 
What happens if we want a configuration change or app install for our iPads or other iOS (Apple) devices?
If you wish to change the restrictions applied to the iPads or other iOS devices, modify settings or install apps, we can undertake this for you on request.
 
What happens if we want a change to the web filtering system?
Your request to block or unblock a website will be evaluated from an E-Safety perspective and, if appropriate, the necessary changes will be made. (See separate Enhanced Web Filtering product sheet).
