An enterprise mobility management tool connects the registered devices with the corporate network, updating the crucial security configurations and implementing administrative controls.

FREMONT, CA: The IT landscape has shifted as a result of enterprise mobility. Mobile device technology is constantly changing. BYOD enthusiasts demand support for a growing number of operating systems, apps, and device models.

This expanded network of sensors and connected devices should communicate with corporate networks, interact with machines, and provide consumers with new services and marketing channels.

These connections allow for rapid innovation, new company prospects, and new sources of revenue, but they also need management.

What is enterprise mobility management?

Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is a combination of policies, procedures, and technological solutions that enable businesses to control and manage mobile devices for business purposes. These devices could be company-owned or BYOD devices that are used to access sensitive company data.

EMM provides powerful management tools for managing how mobile users, devices, and apps communicate with the corporate network. The goal is to find the correct balance between mobile workforce productivity and data security.

Features in EMM tools and solutions

The registered devices are integrated with the corporate network using an Enterprise Mobility Management solution, which updates the required security configurations and applies various administrative controls.

Application management 

This helps control which programs can be downloaded to the smartphone, how corporate networks can become accessible, and how accessed information can be interacted with.

Content management 

It determines how organizational policies are applied to data saved on the device. It generates audit trails for sensitive corporate information activity.

Analytics and intelligence 

It gathers granular data on device, app, content, and network activity and transforms it into easy-to-understand insights and intelligence on a mobile workforce's productivity and performance.

Device and app lifecycle management 

EMM provides endpoint lifecycle management capabilities, including device onboarding and service provisioning, decommissioning, and remote security measures like data wipe.

Service management 

IT administrators handle self-service and push-updates of apps, configurations, settings, and IT service requests. When combined with the organization's ITSM tools, the technology can implement service management policies on mobile devices uniformly. It also aids in the management of how devices consume services, such as data usage and roaming cellular connectivity.
