Mobile Device Management (AirWatch)


Mobile Device Management (MDM) addresses the unique needs of a mobile devices. It provides you with real management capabilities, including convenient configuration, self-service tools, and enhanced protection. It also keeps you up to date with best practices. These features are organized into a collection of settings called configuration profiles.

Installing these profiles on your mobile device enables you to connect securely to internal networks without needing to configure the settings on your own.

If you're new to the Stanford network, you'll be directed to the MDM enrollment page through the Stanford Network Self Registration (SNSR). You can also enroll your iOS or Android device directly in the MDM service. 


  • Simplified configuration: MDM can automatically configure a bundle of settings including Stanford email, calendar, and contacts, a passcode or password, VPN access, and more.
  • Valuable self-service: You can go to MyDevices to remotely erase Stanford-only data or all the data from your device if it's lost or stolen.
  • Enhanced privacy and protection: MDM provides secure access on your mobile device to Moderate and High Risk Data. It helps you set "best practices" privacy controls on your device.
