Getting Started with ZDM for Windows Follow

Overview

Mobile Device Management, MDM, is software that allows IT admins to control, secure and enforce policies on smartphones, tablets, and other devices. MDM is intended to optimize functionality and security of mobile devices, while at the same time protecting the network.

System administrators can use Zoom's Mobile Device Management (ZDM) to assign updates to Windows devices from the web. Admins can create an update schedule that will automatically install Microsoft updates to devices that are missing them. Updates and devices can also be selected so that certain updates or devices are ignored by the automatic update schedule.
