Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) refers to the set of tools, policies, and procedures that organizations use to manage the mobile devices, applications, and data used by their employees for work purposes.
EMM solutions enable organizations to secure and manage mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, as well as the mobile apps that run on them, and the data that is accessed and stored on them. EMM solutions typically include mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM), and mobile content management (MCM) capabilities.
MDM allows IT administrators to remotely manage and monitor mobile devices, including configuring security policies, setting up VPNs, enforcing password policies, and remotely wiping devices if they are lost or stolen.
MAM enables organizations to securely manage and distribute mobile applications to employees, ensuring that only approved apps are installed on company-owned devices.
MCM allows organizations to control access to sensitive corporate data on mobile devices and apply policies such as data encryption, access controls, and remote wipe capabilities.
EMM solutions are essential for organizations that have a mobile workforce, as they help ensure that sensitive corporate information remains secure, while also providing employees with the tools they need to be productive while working on mobile devices.
