Security and Management for Mobile Devices, Data, and Applications
McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee EMM) enables businesses to empower their work force with mobile productivity in a secure, simplified, streamlined way.
Mobile productivity presents risks to mobile devices and data, including 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 through policy-based security that’s easy to use and manage.
The increasingly popular bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend gives employee device choice yet 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.
Busy IT departments will appreciate being able to orchestrate policy, configuration, security, and management of mobile devices through a web-based console. The integrated McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) management infrastructure provides a robust platform.
Unified, Enterprise-Wide Management
It makes sense to manage mobile devices along with your traditional endpoints such as laptop PCs using a single unified infrastructure and console. After all, it’s the same data, same people, same permissions, and similar IT processes. It is easy to manage all endpoints with the integrated McAfee ePO management infrastructure.
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 (unmanaged), and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) management.

Although business benefits from on-the-go productivity, mobile workers are often unaware of the additional business risks and complications that BYOD brings. So, businesses need to make it easy to keep data secure on employee-owned devices through features such as:
