What is Enterprise Mobility Management?
Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) refers to the set of technologies, processes, and policies designed to manage and secure mobile devices, networks, and applications within an organisation. The primary goal of EMM is to enable employees to use mobile devices for work while ensuring the security and integrity of corporate data.
Enterprise Mobility Management is particularly crucial in today’s workplace, where the use of mobile devices is widespread, and remote workforces are common. It helps organisations balance the benefits of mobile productivity with the need for robust security and compliance measures.
What can Enterprise Mobility Management include?
Mobile Device Management (MDM)
MDM focuses on managing and securing mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. It includes tasks like device provisioning, configuration, monitoring, and remote wipe capabilities in case a device is lost or stolen.
Mobile Application Management (MAM)
MAM involves controlling and securing access to mobile applications. It includes features like app distribution, updates, and the enforcement of security policies for individual apps to protect corporate data.
Mobile Content Management (MCM)
MCM is concerned with securing and managing access to corporate data stored on mobile devices. It includes features like document sharing, synchronisation, and encryption to protect sensitive information.
Identity and Access Management (IAM)
IAM ensures that only authorised individuals have access to corporate resources and data. It involves authentication methods, single sign-on, and access controls to protect against unauthorised access.
EMM incorporates various security measures such as encryption, secure connectivity (VPN), and threat detection to safeguard mobile devices and data from cyber threats.
EMM solutions may include features for managing mobile expenses, tracking usage, and optimising data plans to control costs associated with mobile device usage.
EMM allows organisations to establish and enforce policies related to device usage, data access, and security. This ensures that employees adhere to corporate guidelines and compliance standards.
Integration with Existing Systems
EMM solutions integrate with other enterprise systems such as email servers, collaboration platforms, and directory services to ensure a seamless and cohesive mobile experience for employees.
