There are two types of software for managing mobile devices: MDM and EMM. The difference between them lies in the organization of this very administration.
MDM (Mobile Device Management) – classics in the style of the era of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). MDM-system works at the level of the mobile device and provides full access to it.
EMM (Enterprise Mobile Management) – more advanced type of programs for working at the application and information level. The matter is in flexibility of division of the personal and corporate data. Depending the functionality EMM-systems are divided into three categories:
- Mobile Application Management (MAM)
Device management at the application level. For example, setting up their access to information (both from the business network and from other applications on the device).
- Mobile Identification Management (MIM)
Functionality limiting the use of a mobile device. For example, assigning user roles or geolocation.
- Mobile Content Management (MCM)
Full control at the level of corporate content. It can include restrictions on copying and pasting, access to business content repositories.
