McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee EMM)

McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee EMM)

Secure, easy, and scalable enterprise mobility


Security and Management for Mobile Devices, Data, and Applications
McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee EMM) manages and secures the mobile workforce. McAfee EMM delivers a simplified, streamlined way to enable productivity with confidence in a world where users, and their devices, go everywhere and anywhere.

Comprehensive Mobile Security
Mobile productivity presents risks to mobile devices and data, including malware, loss, theft, and unauthorized access. Businesses work hard to develop their intellectual property, partner and customer lists, and trade secrets so it’s a top priority to protect that mobile data. This is achieved through policy-based security, including malware and app protection, that’s easy to use and manage.

Support for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Employee device choice can reduce costs, however it adds complication for IT. When an employee-owned, consumer-oriented device is used for business, additional privacy, control, usage, policy, security, and data protection issues need to be addressed to ensure that business data is protected.

Single Pane of Glass for Managing and Securing All Endpoints
McAfee EMM is fully managed by McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) management software. McAfee EMM and McAfee ePO software enable enterprises to manage and secure mobile users and devices right alongside traditional endpoints like laptops, workstations, and servers, using the same familiar console and infrastructure.

McAfee went for the gold and got it. Best mobile data security.

Features & Benefits

Security and Management for Mobile Devices, Data, and Applications

The McAfee EMM solution delivers mobile data protection and mobile device management (MDM) through a combination of McAfee EMM, McAfee Secure Container for Android, McAfee VirusScan Mobile for Android, and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) management.


McAfee EMM delivers confidence that users, data, apps, and devices are secure:

  • Enforce the use of VirusScan Mobile Security for Android and block devices with malware to protect the network from malicious software.
  • Ensure apps are secure with mobile app reputation.
  • Block devices that have malware, are jailbroken or rooted, or have blacklisted apps.
  • Enforce authentication and encryption.
  • Network connectivity management, including certificate-based two-factor authentication for VPN and Wi-Fi on iOS devices.
  • Mobile threat events alert administrators to devices that are jailbroken or rooted, or have malware, potentially malicious apps, or blacklisted apps for enhanced situational awareness.
  • Pre-authorization of users.
  • Remote locking, wiping corporate data, or full wiping of devices that are lost or stolen.
  • Secure Container for Android provides encrypted storage and restricts cut and paste of data, keeping it out of unsecured areas.

McAfee EMM helps you to embrace BYOD by providing security, while enabling the native experience that users demand.

  • Users can enjoy the native email on iOS but IT can govern which apps can be used to open corporate email attachments and block the copying, forwarding, or replying to corporate email using other apps.
  • Risky Android devices can be secured centrally via managed anti-malware, app reputation, and a Secure Container for encrypted email, contacts, and calendar, secure document viewing, and cut and paste restrictions.
  • Remote wipe of only corporate data can be executed for iOS and Android devices leaving personal data untouched.
  • Easy, over-the-air provisioning and policy distribution.
  • Support for the most-used consumer devices, including Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
Single Pane of Glass for Mobile and Endpoint Management and Security

McAfee EMM requires just one console to manage and secure PCs, laptops, servers, and mobile devices.

  • Now, McAfee ePO software can be used to manage iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices right alongside traditional endpoints, giving IT security, administration, and helpdesk staff a familiar console to secure and manage users regardless of the type of device.
  • McAfee EMM is included in the McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection suites, easing budget concerns as IT departments seek to enable mobility in the workforce.
  • Granular mobile policy options, including by user, group, device, and operating system.
  • Mobile dashboards and actionable reports and alerts can be rolled up with events from the broader endpoint inventory for enhanced situational awareness and remediation.
  • McAfee EMM provides for the distribution of commercial and enterprise apps for iOS and Android devices.
  • End-user notifications tell users how to remediate compliance events, reducing IT helpdesk calls.
  • Secure Container for Android provides a single email client across a range of devices to make the helpdesk job easier.
