MDMayhem: how MDM software exposes your personal data

MDMayhem: How MDM Software Exposes Your Personal Data Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a widely used technology that enables organizations to control every aspect of a mobile device, from permitted apps to outbound communications. To understand the extent to which MDM can monitor and control BYO devices, the Bitglass research team installed MDM software on several employees’ personal mobile devices with their permission. The outcome? Our team was able to track everything and learn about employees’ interests, activities, relationships, and more, at the click of a button.
