The era of business mobility has changed the way companies work and the role of their employees. Today's workers expect to be able to accomplish everything they need from wherever they are, which makes it essential for them to have access to the right tools and applications on their mobile devices.
Employees are also increasingly likely to want to use their own devices - such as smartphones - for business purposes rather than being restricted to corporate-owned devices. This is known as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and has spawned a plethora of EMM tools that allow companies to manage BYOD policies without compromising security.
A good EMM solution will not only protect sensitive information and data but will also help IT administrators keep a close eye on employees' activities. It can control employee access to their devices based on their applications, roles, and location, and also give IT admins the ability to wipe out data on lost or stolen devices.
Mobile Device Manager Plus is an EMM solution that takes the guesswork out of deploying and managing enterprise-grade mobile devices. It automates device enrollment and provides a streamlined set of security policies, apps and resources based on the user's role in the organization.
MDM Plus also helps administrators monitor mobile device activity and proactively take action to minimize downtime. It can send alerts when a mobile device has low battery level or is experiencing an app malfunction, and it can automatically reconfigure Wi-Fi, VPN, email settings and passcodes to ensure optimum performance.
In addition, the enterprise mobility solutions will keep track of mobile devices and their configuration to ensure compliance with company policies. It can then push the latest security controls and trigger alerts in case of any prohibited device activity.
Another key component of an EMM strategy is unified endpoint management, or UEM, which can be used to manage all mobile and desktop devices on a network. It can help reduce costs by managing mobile devices and all other endpoints, including servers, PCs, printers and wearables.
MIM Secures Identity and Data
Mobile identity management is an essential part of any enterprise mobility strategy, and it helps to secure critical data and prevent unauthorized users from accessing sensitive information. It can be based on a variety of methods, such as multifactor authentication (MFA), biometrics and device-specific information.
The most important benefit of MIM is that it allows employees to access and use applications they need for their jobs from the same login credentials they use when logging in to other parts of the network. This can be a game-changer for businesses that have a large amount of remote employees.
MIM can also be integrated with single sign-on (SSO) strategies that let employees access their corporate networks from their favorite web browsers, reducing the number of logins needed to perform work. This can make using popular enterprise-grade applications such as Salesforce, Concur or Workday a breeze.
