Enterprises are faced with the task of managing a plethora of mobile computing devices in the workplace that are employed for both business purposes and private use. This integration can contribute to the demands of security protection and add significant threats to the enterprise. The introduction of the Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record (PCEHR) system is a significant step in e-health for Australia and will likely result in sensitive information being accessed from mobile computing devices. Mobile Device Management (MDM) offers a potential solution to manage these devices, however there is a variety of vendors with a range of solutions. This paper presents preliminary research into a generic methodology that could be used to assist the enterprise in the MDM selection process particularly when mobile devices will eventually integrate with the Australia’s PCEHR.
