What Mobile Device Management (MDM) does your organization use?

We live in a world where every doctor, medical student, nurse, nursing student, pharmacist, pharmacy student, etc. is bringing a personal mobile device into the hospital setting. This BYOD (bring your own device) phenomenon is causing headaches for IT departments that are responsible for patient data privacy and security.

What Mobile Device Management (MDM) does your organization use?

Maybe your hospital doesn't use an MDM right now. Remote "Lock and Wipe" is one of the most critical features that should be on every mobile device that potentially has access to patient data. This way, a lost smartphone can be erased so that someone who discovers the phone won't have access to critical hospital information.
