Five Ways VUMC is making mobile device management easy

In our series on the “Modern Mobile Workforce,” we have discussed how Smartphones and Mobile Devices have become an important part of our daily lives and help us to be more productive, efficient, and connected. We are more productive and happier when we are able to use our personal devices to complete work tasks.

We also discussed the risks presented to the Medical Center’s data when using smartphones and mobile devices to connect to VUMC networks. To balance that risk with the needs of our employees, VUMC is taking steps to secure our infrastructure while safeguarding your privacy. Our new Mobile Device Management (MDM) platform will protect Medical Center data on mobile devices while enabling employees to securely access VUMC data and resources from their personal devices.

Here are five ways VUMC Enterprise Cybersecurity has prepared the MDM enrollment experience to be as easy as possible for you.


Making Cybersecurity easy with MDM technology

The MDM application is a simple platform that safeguards Medical Center data, satisfies government regulations and will eventually allow you to access many VUMC resources in a safe manner.

MDM is now available for you to download. You can do your part to safeguard VUMC data and even protect your own data with the installation of MDM.

MDM not only safeguards Medical Center data. When MDM is fully implemented this new technology will allow our employees to download VUMC applications, access VUMC resources, and communicate and collaborate from mobile devices simply and securely.
