Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is an industry term for the administration of mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablet computers, and laptops. EMM is usually implemented with the use of a third-party product like Intune that has management features for vendors of mobile devices, such as Apple and Android.
Intune is a cloud-based enterprise mobility management (EMM) service that helps enable the State workforce to be productive while keeping State data protected.
Why do we need an EMM system?
The State’s most critical asset, besides its employees, is State data. The use of mobile devices as a tool for business operations is common, and often encouraged. The flexibility to access State data at any time and at any place can increase productivity.
However, with the convenience and speed benefits of mobile access comes with it the security implications of securing these mobile devices from data theft and data leaks.
An EMM system is designed to help secure mobile devices by providing State IT Administrators a remediation mechanism for unforeseen events and thus creating a layer of accountability of all mobile devices with State access.
With Intune, we can:
Manage the mobile devices the State workforce uses to access State data.
Manage the mobile apps the State workforce uses.
Protect State information by helping to control the way the State workforce accesses and shares it.
Ensure devices and apps are compliant with State security requirements.
Regardless of device type, “State Owned” or “Personal Device”, personal privacy is guaranteed at every level. An EMM system of this type is not to track employee device usage or location. Instead, systems like Intune are used for protecting the critical State data it may hold and it gives the State IT Administrators the ability to remotely wipe only the State data in the event the mobile device is lost or stolen.
