They added, “We were struck by several powerful policy controls,” as they commented on MaaS360’s ability to prompt users to comply with important IT policies. At the end of the rigorous testing, which included all of the top MDM solutions on the market, Henderson and Allen concluded, “We like MaaS360 the best.”
