Manage mobile devices with ease

Device management has never been more complex and time-consuming due to the large number of smartphones and tablets used in businesses today.


Telstra Mobile Device Management (T-MDM)

As a member of an IT or support team, you are challenged with the increasing use of smartphones and tablets across the enterprise, plus a growing number of staff who access corporate data through personal devices.

Staff are demanding more functionality from their mobile devices when out of the office. That means it's harder to ensure corporate data remains secure, while device management is becoming more complex and time-consuming.

That's where Telstra Mobile Device Management can help. From one convenient portal, you'll be able to perform a wide range of administrative functions (depending on the type of device) whenever you're in a Telstra Mobile Network coverage area or Wi-Fi coverage area. We will continue to update functions as new devices are released and their capabilities improve.

There are no software or maintenance fees. You simply need to purchase an eligible Telstra plan for each compatible device and/or purchase client access licences (for individually owned or Wi-Fi only devices).

Remove the restrictions of a local area network (LAN) cable and allow your teams to connect and collaborate in many places they need to work using smartphones and tablets.

Telstra Mobile Device Management helps you connect people to work in a secure and seamless way when they are mobile.

Manage your mobile fleet from start to finish with the Telstra Device Enrolment Service. From purchase, devices will be enrolled and when deployed employees will receive a device fully compliant to your organisations preferred settings – deploying and managing hundreds of devices within your organisation could not be easier.

Enrolment is offered for newly ordered devices at no charge. From here you can self-manage your fleet or let Telstra look after it for you.

Your Telstra sales person or Telstra dealer can confirm which devices can be enrolled.

How the enrolment service works

We’ll automatically enrol any new devices you order and provide you with the tools to manage your fleet through its lifecycle. This means that you establish the controls and employees receive devices that are preconfigured and locked to company settings.

Some of the features of the Telstra Device Enrolment Service include:

  • view your organisation’s device purchase history online
  • add or remove your devices from the manufacturer’s enrolment program at any time
  • download reports for all your device orders and the current status of devices
  • enjoy support with our helpdesk available to assist with queries on enrolling devices
  • if you’d prefer, let us take care of the program for you with our end-to-end managed service.


In order to participate and before ordering new devices from Telstra, your organisation must:

  1. Be a Telstra Business or Enterprise customer

  2. Create an online account with the device manufacturer:
  3. a. create an Apple deployment program account at

    b. create a Samsung KNOX mobile enrolment account at

    Please note: Use Telstra’s ResellerID 1A586DA0 to setup your online account

  4. Have a compatible mobile device management platform like T-MDM and configure this platform for device enrolment. It is your MDM platform that pushes all the settings, policies and applications to the devices when they are powered up.

  5. Request a Telstra DES account by completing and submitting the form.

a. You will need to supply your Telstra Mobile account number and Customer ID from the device manufacturer.


How DES Works


Place a device order with Telstra or your Telstra dealer.

As part of this device order you must advise that devices are required to be registered with the manufacturer.


Telstra will check you have a Telstra DES account and automatically register devices with the manufacturer.

You will receive an email notification when this has been completed.


Log into the device manufacturer’s online account and assign the Telstra order number to your MDM server.

Please note: you can skip this step and have the manufacturer automatically assign devices to your MDM server. 


The end user receives the new device, powers up and all company settings are applied automatically.

Zimperium Intrusion Protection Solution (zIPS)

While traditional MDM solutions allow standard security settings to be configured on mobile devices, T-MDM is unique and goes one step further to include the advanced mobile protection of Zimperium.

The Zimperium Intrusion Protection Solution (zIPS) is an app built for business and enterprise mobile devices.  Using a revolutionary cyber attack detection engine, the app monitors both corporate owned and BYO mobile devices for malicious behaviour protecting against threats in real time. 

Leading Threat Detection Capabilities

The Telstra zIPS solution provides comprehensive protection against mobile threats, including:

  • Spearphishing attacks (e.g., malicious URLs, PDF files)
  • Malicious apps (e.g., “time bombs”, self-modifying apps)
  • Network traffic redirection attacks (e.g., “man-in-the-middle”)
  • SSL stripping techniques
  • Rogue WiFi access point
  • Rogue base station/femtocell
  • Network reconnaissance scans



  • Help protect your mobile devices from being compromised by device, network and application attacks
  • Supports ‘bring your own’ and corporate owned devices so you can preserve the security of company data
  • Runs in the background for continuous protection

Activating Telstra zIPS

The Telstra zIPS application is deployed using your T-MDM platform.

The Telstra zIPS application will automatically appear in your T-MDM enterprise catalogue.  Users can download the application directly from the T-MDM application catalogue as required, or alternatively you can include Telstra zIPS in your company IT policy and have it automatically pushed to devices. 

Please contact the T-MDM helpdesk if you need help pushing the Telstra zIPS application to your employees as part of a company policy.

Things you need to know

This app can only be installed if your employer is using the Telstra Mobile Device Management platform.  If your device is registered on the Telstra Mobile Device Management platform, the app will be automatically activated for you.
