MDM 101: The basics of Enterprise Mobility (EMM) explained

  • 1. What is enterprise mobility management (EMM)?

    Enterprise mobility management (EMM) is the complete set of tools, technologies, and practices that allows IT admins to manage and secure the entire life cycle of every mobile device used in their organizations. Mobile Device Manager Plus is a comprehensive EMM tool that facilitates the management of smartphones, tablets, laptops, rugged devices, and IoT devices across Apple OSs, Android, Windows, and Chrome OS from a unified console.

  • 2. What are the components of enterprise mobility management (EMM)?

    While enterprise mobile management can be tailored to suit the device management needs of each organization, it generally consists of the following major components:

    • Mobile device management (MDM): This key element of EMM focuses on ensuring mobile devices are ready to handle corporate data by allowing IT admins to bring them under management and enforce the required security policies on them.
    • Mobile application management (MAM): MAM involves distributing, configuring, and updating the mobile applications required by a workforce while restricting apps that pose a security threat to corporate data.
    • Mobile security management (MSM): MSM handles the finer aspects of mobile device security, such as enforcing the use of secure communication protocols, facilitating device lockdown, and preventing noncompliant devices from accessing data.
    • Mobile content management (MCM): MCM deals with distributing the required corporate documents and media files to mobile devices, keeping them updated, and deleting them when they are no longer needed.
    • Mobile identity management (MIM): MIM ensures that the right people are granted the right levels of access to enterprise resources through the right devices by configuring enterprise SSO, multi-factor authentication, and more.
  • 3. How has enterprise mobility management (EMM) evolved from MDM?

    Though IT admins have complete control over on-premises devices, when mobile devices started entering the workflow, it resulted in corporate data being accessed over the internet by devices that organizations did not control. Mobile device management tools initially offered basic remote management capabilities. However, when mobile devices evolved, with several new features added in each update, IT admins realized that basic management alone would not suffice. This led to MDM evolving into enterprise mobility management, allowing admins to remotely enroll, secure, and manage mobile devices as well as the apps and content on them across platforms, all from a single console.

  • 4. What is the difference between MDM and EMM?

    MDM and EMM are two stages in the evolution of enterprise device management and they both allow IT admins to manage and ensure corporate data security on devices in enterprises. However, mobile device management deals with enforcing basic device management policies, while enterprise mobility management allows for the management of mobile content, applications, and more in addition to everything that MDM offers.

  • 5. Why is enterprise mobility management (EMM) important?

    The recent trend of remote work has resulted in workforces being more dependent on mobile devices than ever. When distributed workforces access enterprise data over the internet and through unmanaged devices, that data is exposed to several security threats. Moreover, if the required apps and content are not provisioned to these devices on time, employees might resort to shadow IT and obtain them from unapproved sources, placing corporate data at risk of leaking. The use of personal devices only adds to the complexity. EMM helps admins counter these challenges by:

    • Remotely bringing devices under management and enforcing security policies and restrictions on them.
    • Distributing, configuring, and updating the required resources on time, thereby preventing shadow IT.
    • Managing only the corporate workspace on personal devices in BYOD environments, ensuring user privacy.
  • 6. How does enterprise mobility management (EMM) software work?

    Enterprise mobility management solutions provide comprehensive management of the entire life cycle of every device used in organizations by enabling admins to:

    • Enroll: Using EMM software, IT admins can enroll both enterprise- and employee-owned devices (across platforms and device types) in bulk and over the air, all from a central console.
    • Provision: EMM tools allow admins to configure devices with the necessary permissions and security restrictions and to distribute the required resources, ensuring users have secure access to everything they need.
    • Manage: Once devices are handed over to employees, admins monitor and manage them from the EMM server, taking proactive and reactive measures to keep corporate data secure.
    • Retire: EMM tools remotely raise alarms, track locations, and wipe data on lost or stolen enterprise devices. Devices can also be reassigned to different users or have a complete wipe or a corporate wipe performed on them.
  • 7. What are the benefits of enterprise mobility management (EMM) tools and solutions?

    Enterprise mobility management tools offer a wide range of benefits for IT admins and employees alike by supporting mobile workforces without compromising on corporate data security. Admins can maintain employee productivity by provisioning the required resources, scheduling updates to take place outside of work hours, and troubleshooting issues in real time. On personal devices, admins exercise control over just the corporate workspace, without intruding on the user's personal space. Additionally, ordinary mobile devices can be turned into single-purpose devices in a few clicks.

  • 8. How are enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions used across industries?

    Enterprise mobility management tools are versatile and can be tailored to suit the needs of any organization, which is why EMM has gained popularity in these sectors:

    • Healthcare: Enterprise mobility management allows healthcare professionals to go mobile while staying compliant with standards like HIPAA by applying security restrictions on devices containing patient data.
    • Education: With tablets becoming commonplace in learning environments, EMM prevents device misuse by students, facilitates the distribution of learning materials, and allows devices to run only the required app for the duration of a test.
    • Government: EMM tools allow government organizations to secure data on mobile devices and stay compliant with privacy standards in a budget-friendly way.
    • Transport: EMM facilitates keeping track of the current and past geographic locations of devices on the road to make sure deliveries are on the way and on time.
    • Retail: Devices can be converted into dedicated kiosks or digital signage to enhance the customer experience. They can also become POS systems to make the staff's work easier.
    • Manufacturing: With EMM, organizations can go paperless and have devices locked down to run only the required set of apps.
  • 9. How can EMM help manage devices in a BYOD environment?

    While employees using personal devices for work has numerous benefits, it can also be a burden for admins everywhere. They have to monitor and prevent misuse of corporate data on these devices while ensuring employees' personal files remain private. EMM tools prove quite useful in BYOD environments by facilitating:

    • Simplified enrollment: Devices can be brought under corporate management through scanning a QR code, invites, or employee self-enrollment.
    • Containerization: Create a virtual container on devices to store corporate data and manage this container exclusively, thereby securing corporate data while maintaining user privacy.
    • Retirement: If an employee exits the organization or misplaces their device, perform a selective wipe to delete only the corporate content on it, right from the EMM server.
  • 10. What should you consider before implementing enterprise mobility management (EMM) in your organization?

    Enterprise mobility management can benefit organizations to a great extent, but it is crucial to first study your organizational needs to understand if EMM can solve those requirements. Once this is completed, you will need to determine if your preferred EMM tool has the features you require, is budget-friendly, and supports the device types and platforms in your organization. It is also essential to educate your workforce about your EMM policies and make device signup easy if you plan on allowing employees to use their personal devices for work. Once you are done with these steps, you can implement the EMM tool and reap its many benefits.
