Delivering applications to a user in a secure way is sometimes a challenge, especially when the user is trying to access applications from a potentially unsafe device (BYOD). In that case it is important that the data resides centrally and that potential malware on that device cannot access the data.
The secure workspace empowers users with secure, remote access to corporate resources from any device. The benefit of this approach of managing identities, applications, and data (even sensitive customer data) across devices is that it enables flexibility for nearly every combination of user, device, and application imaginable: bring your own device (BYOD), out of the box configuration over the air, shared workspaces, one application, many applications, and more.
Users want a seamless experience across personal devices, as well as corporate owned devices, without IT configuration hassles. They also want to be confident that a secure divide exists between their personal and work data – in other words, Big Brother isn’t watching! Workers don’t care how these applications get delivered, but they do care that every application they need is available when they need it.
A Secure Workspace Solution is making significant positive impact across businesses and industries. With the right planning and implementation, your organization can be more flexible, resulting in a faster response to business changes. This will provide key information which helps organizations make better decisions around technology investments.
Enterprise mobility management (EMM) is a device- and platform-agnostic solution that centralizes the management, configuration and security of all devices in an organization, both BYO and corporate-owned. EMM goes beyond traditional device management to include the management and configuration of enterprise apps and content.
A comprehensive EMM solution will include MDM, Mobile application management (MAM), mobile content management (MCM), identity management for access control, and productivity apps for easy access to corporate email, calendar, contacts, content repositories and intranet sites. When done right, an EMM solution should supply both the technical capabilities to simplify management and security for IT as well as a pleasant user experience for the employee.
Mobile device management (MDM) is a device lifecycle management technology that enables IT to deploy, configure, manage, support and secure mobile devices through MDM profiles installed on the devices. MDM software provides asset inventory, over-the- air configuration of email, apps and Wi-Fi, remote troubleshooting, and remote lock and wipe capabilities to secure the device and the enterprise data on it. MDM is the foundation of a comprehensive enterprise mobility management (EMM) solution.
