Getting started with enterprise mobility management

Mobile devices are essential for the modern information worker. According to Forrsights Workforce Employee Survey, 74% of information workers use two or more devices for work, including desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets.

Many of those employees are using the same device to manage personal and professional tasks, yet they still want to keep their personal and corporate data separate.

In the era of enterprise mobility, organizations need visibility and control over who is moving their corporate data, where, and with which apps and devices.

An enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution can help organizations move away from restrictive device and content policies and towards secure environments where protected data is easily accessible from anywhere for on-the-go employees.

The task of enterprise mobile security really boils down to three basic needs:

  • Protecting the user and device
  • Protecting access to the enterprise network
  • Protecting enterprise data

And of course, most importantly, you need an easy-to-use solution that lets you accomplish your goals with available resources.

EMM solutions are aimed at smartphone and tablet devices and should support multiple operating systems. The core components of EMM include: mobile device management, mobile application management, mobile security, and mobile content management.
