White Paper: Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM)
In many companies, the use of mobile devices has become standard, and employees want to access company data from their own mobile devices. This can bring some benefits for companies, but IT Managers should be aware of the risks. Effective protection and keeping an inventory are basic requirements in order to safely integrate smartphones and more into the professional world.
If companies are looking at a mobility strategy for the first time – and in this context at the introduction of EMM software, either as an addition to endpoint management or as a standalone EMM suite – it is first necessary to define which features an appropriate solution should offer.
- Consistent configuration of all mobile devices
- Distribution of apps and settings
- Compile a hardware and software inventory
- Force password protection
- Remotely block and wipe lost devices
- Implement compliance with company policies
With good EMM software, all relevant data is not only provided to the managed mobile devices, but is also available in real time. Because it is only when the administrator receives all key information and feedback promptly that they are sufficiently informed and able to correctly assess the security of the mobile devices. Administrators can also intervene promptly if rules are violated and take appropriate countermeasures. Job-oriented mechanisms are better in this regard compared to rules-based paradigms. If an up-to-date database is available at all times, current reports can be exported and prepared as required.
