Enterprise mobility management is the set of people, processes, and technology focused on managing mobile devices, wireless networks, and other mobile computing services in a business context.
Enterprise mobility management is a set of systems intended to prevent unauthorized access to enterprise applications and/or corporate data on mobile devices. These can include password protection, encryption, and/or remote wipe technology, which allows an administrator to delete all data from a misplaced device.

Enterprise mobility improves productivity by providing key information while on the go. While the focus is on customer experience, responsiveness, and employee productivity, taking your business to the next generation of technology usage is key for success.
The enterprise mobility management industry is witnessing the rapid adoption of cloud computing technologies including Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud storage. These allow employees to securely access sensitive enterprise data without the need to install additional software/applications on their devices.
