Report File: 

This report provides an executive summary of the current Mobile Device Management (MDM) status.  The report was created using the new features within SecurityCenter 4.7 and the features within Nessus to collect mobile data from the MDM solution.  There are three chapters with components showing a summary of mobile device types, charts displaying the current vulnerability count, and tables with user and device summaries.  The currently supported MDM solutions are Apple Profile Manager, Microsoft ActiveSync, and Good for Enterprise.

The report is available in the SecurityCenter 4.7 app feed, an app store of dashboards, reports and assets. The report requirements are:

  • SecurityCenter 4.7
  • Nessus 5.2.1

The first chapter has two sections, one with pie chart data and the other with bar chart data.

  • The pie chart provides a model summary of the managed devices with the MDM solution.  Using the "Model Summary" tool and sorting devices based on the Model column, the device count is used to create a pie chart that is easy to read and understand.  From a quick glance, the user can understand the number of managed mobile devices.
  • The bar chart displays device count, critical severity, and high severity. Using the device model as the sort column with a descending sort direction, the component provides an easy to view status of all managed device models, with a bar representing the count of device with critical and high severities.

The second chapter contains a table listing the users with the most mobile devices registered to MDM. The table is based on the "User Summary" tool, and displays all users based on the total number of mobile devices.  The sort column is based on the device total count and is sorted in descending order.  The user, low, medium, high, critical, and total columns are displayed.

The third and final chapter provides a table of mobile devices discovered within each calendar year from 2011 – 2014.
