Device management doesn’t have to be complicated. For starters, IT teams no longer need to manage and secure mobile devices from separate platforms. Today’s worker may use a personal smartphone, a shared tablet and a corporate-issued device that uses Chrome OS. They may also interact with non-standard endpoints, completing a transaction using a kiosk. In each case, the devices can be managed by a single UEM solution for secure access, reduced risk and a satisfying end-user experience, helping you build a zero trust strategy.

The basis of any UEM deployment is MDM. While UEM solutions deliver a rich set of security and productivity tools, none of those matter if devices themselves are not enrolled and managed at a basic level. MDM solutions provide the API-based policy, support for all operating systems, compliance rules, and app distribution that make up the backbone of any mobile device management platform.
EMM solutions represent an evolution from MDM, a midway point to full UEM with a focus on the user experience and data security. Within MaaS360, EMM features include the secure container — an encrypted sandbox installed on user devices equipped with workplace applications — as well as identity tools and mobile app management policies for corporate apps.
BYOD is a corporate policy that empowers employees to be more mobile — to make their world their office. Put simply, BYOD encourages use of personal devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearables) to access enterprise data from anywhere. From native containers to developer features such as User Enrollment and Android Enterprise, MaaS360 supports all flavors of BYOD deployment.
