​Mobile Device Management


Mobile Device Management (MDM) enables the centralised, secure control and management of University owned mobile devices and University data.


It offers protection if a University owned device is lost or stolen by giving Information Services (IS) the ability to wipe and disable University owned devices.

IS is replacing the previous MDM solution, AirW​atch, with Intune.  Most devices can be enrolled for Intune. 


Why should I enrol my device for Intune MDM?


The installation of Intune:

  • Ensures compliance with the Information Security Policy, effectively protecting the University’s data and you as a staff member.
  • Enables you to securely access University email and data on University owned Mobile Devices.
  • Provides peace of mind that University data is secure and that the device can be centrally wiped and disabled if lost or stolen.
  • Encourages information security good practice by requiring a device password / passcode to be set on the device.
  • Automatically encrypts University data ensuring that all data stored on the device is only accessible to you, the device owner – you enter your password/passcode to access the data. Anyone attempting to gain access directly (e.g. by removing a devices storage card) will not be able to access the data.
  • Enables you to easily download and access University and departmental apps
  • Allows you to track and locate your allocated devices.
  • Enables you to be remotely contacted by IS, including the ability to be sent a message or alert to the device.

How do I enrol my device for Intune MDM?


If you already have the previous MDM solution, AirWatch, installed on your device you will need to remove this before enrolling for Intune - find out how to uninstall AirWatch 

Intune can be installed quickly and easily on most devices:
