Mobile Device Manager Plus is a powerful safeguard against the threat of corporate content coming into the wrong hands. This robust solution enables us to centralize all mobile devices on the same console as a web-portal which is segmented by countries. The access for local IT teams in each country is restricted to the mobile devices in their respective country, ensuring better security.

Mobile content management (MCM) refers to the process of distributing and managing enterprise files on the mobile devices used in organizations, ensuring that required resources can be accessed securely by authorized users through approved devices. MCM allows IT admins to remotely distribute, update, and delete business-critical documents on the smartphones, tablets, and laptops used by their organizations' workforces. Mobile content management is also known as mobile information management(MIM) and is a part of most mobile device management(MDM) solutions.
Organizations of all sizes have multiple teams with different requirements. Manually updating necessary documents and media files and sharing them with each team member would be a time-consuming task. Furthermore, with the increasing use of mobile devices for work, admins are burdened with providing secure, remote access to corporate data through these mobile devices and ensuring that distributed content is protected from data leaks and other security threats at rest, in transit, and in use. This requires a mobile content management system that is capable of sharing the right files with the right devices while maintaining data security.
Mobile content management tools work by deploying a separate app to users' devices to allow IT admins to distribute content to them. Users can access the shared files through this app, eliminating the need for a third-party app to view corporate data. Any files that IT admins update or delete on the MCM tool console will be automatically updated or deleted on the devices.
With required corporate content being shared with a workforce's mobile devices, both enterprise- and employee-owned, the chances of such data being inadvertently shared between apps, cloud services, or unauthorized personnel vastly increase. Mobile content management tools allow IT admins to enforce restrictions on how device users can handle the data shared with them in order to prevent data leaks. By allowing only a trusted app to view the shared files, you can be sure these files will not be accessed through unapproved third-party apps. You can also prevent devices from automatically backing up content to cloud services or transferring content through USBs or screenshots.
An MCM client is an app or that is installed on devices by IT admins from an MDM solution to allow device users to access the work files and apps that they need. MCM clients provisioned via MDM facilitate employees to view work files on-the-go on their work devices in a secure manner.
If you're wondering what the MCM client app on your phone is, this app is an agent that is generally installed by organizations to manage devices.
An MCM client app or MCM agent simply refers to the app that is installed on devices to allow device users to securely access shared content. Mobile content management solutions deploy an MCM client to devices to protect shared content from security threats and to prevent device users from accessing sensitive corporate data through unauthorized third-party apps.
Mobile Device Manager Plus is a robust MDM solution that provides comprehensive mobile content management capabilities, allowing IT admins to share content with managed devices over the air and in real time. A separate MCM client called the ManageEngine MDM app is installed on devices to grant employees secure access to the shared files and documents. Using this MCM client app, IT admins can ensure shared content is downloaded and saved only in the app and not backed up to third-party cloud servers or shared with unauthorized personnel. In BYOD environments, the MCM client app creates a sandbox, effectively separating corporate content from personal files on devices.
IT admins can create a content repository on the Mobile Device Manager Plus server, add content to it, and distribute the files to devices and device groups. In addition to simplified distribution of content, Mobile Device Manager Plus' MCM capabilities have various other advantages that help strengthen corporate data security.
When an Android or Samsung device is enrolled into Mobile Device Manager Plus, the ME MDM app is automatically installed on the device. This ME MDM app has the capability to serve as the MCM client on Android and Samsung devices. In case of Windows and iOS/iPadOS devices, admins can silently install the ME MDM apps on devices to enable content sharing. ME MDM app as an MCM client ensures that the corporate data shared using Mobile Device Manager Plus can be downloaded and saved only in the ME MDM app. It acts as a sandbox on employee-owned, BYOD devices and prevents the personal apps from accessing the shared data. Due to the numerous benefits of ME MDM app as an MCM client, it is recommended to not uninstall the MCM client from devices. Admins can also restrict users from uninstalling the MCM Client from devices and revoking management.
