Most of us have seen it in the movies. Somebody is on the run from the authorities and makes a phone call. The police force quickly jump to action, triangulating signals and whatnot in order to trace the mobile phone but the caller is too clever for that - he hangs up just a few seconds too early for the location to be pinpointed. The police chief slams his fist down on the desk in frustration.

Being able to trace a mobile phone used to be Bond-esque Hollywood fiction, but not anymore. With mobile device management, it's simple for anyone to trace a mobile phone from the comfort of their own office or home. Most mobile devices already have GPS tracking fitted.

Many businesses are turning to mobile device management systems such as 2X MDM so that they can track their employees. Why would a company want to do that?

Other companies have traced a mobile phone when employees are in dangerous areas, for security reasons. Perhaps, for example, a journalist reporting on the latest news in a war-torn country, or a photographer documenting it.
