Enterprise mobility (also known as business mobility) is the growing trend of businesses to offer remote working options, allow the use of personal laptops and mobile devices for business purposes and make use of cloud technology for data access. Enterprise mobility recognizes the need for greater agility brought on by a shift from the traditional central office business model.
The flexibility and efficiency possible through enterprise mobility can offer benefits like increased productivity and decreased expenses. To be successful, however, businesses need a clear acceptable use policy and a management plan in place to ensure high standards of security and governance.
Enterprise mobility management (EMM) refers to the people and plans behind enterprise mobility. It includes ensuring the security of remote and mobile devices, as well as providing employees the devices and support needed to enable mobility. Along with managing device-level access, EMM also helps IT admins control access by application, file, employee role, location and other factors. Enterprises can increase access to digital assets while still maintaining proprietary control.
