Indeed - in our company, if the device is owned by the company or you are using the device to access work resources, you need to have the MDM software installed so that we can log, mange, and administer the device for our protection in case you are doing anything against policy with said device or if we need to administer and support the device.

We have had several employees that have forgotten their unlock code in the past and with one command on the server, we can force a reset of of the unlock code and get the person back in. Another scenario? We need to wipe the device of an employee that was being termed and suspected of leaking information to a competitor. MDM servers make that easy. It seems obvious to me - if its company property or used for work, the company needs a way to monitor and control the device centrally just like a computer would be.
