Historically in the enterprise, Macs have been managed separately from iOS devices in separate consoles, sometimes by different groups within IT. Traditional domain-joined management posed several problems for today’s modern enterprise. Nowadays, managing Macs like mobile devices means they can be configured over the air, without ever having to be domain-joined. That’s a major plus for global organizations, remote workers and companies who use contractors or freelancers. Unifying parallel device environments enables streamlined oversight, management and distribution of content across Macs and iOS devices.
With AirWatch® Enterprise Mobility Management, IT can implement a BYOD program and policy for all device types, ensuring personal information remains private. IT has a consistent management experience for all device types and operating systems, enabling a single-pane-of-glass view of all endpoints in an enterprise.
In this paper, we discuss why a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) approach to workforce mobility can be a compromise-free approach, and then how the combined capabilities of Samsung KNOX and Enterprise Mobility Management from AirWatch by VMware turn this compromise-free approach into reality.
Mobility packs the power to lift an enterprise to a competitive advantage. Not only can it make your employees more productive, enterprise mobility can help you take innovative measures to engage your customers. The emerging challenge for IT administrators is to manage mobility in the enterprise, to make sure corporate data is secure, to ensure that the existing infrastructure is compatible for today’s mobile environment, and to provide a management solution that is adaptable to changing business needs.
Nemmeno un anno fa, le previsioni degli analisti inducevano gli entusiasti della mobility a ritenere che il destino del settore del Mobile Device Management (MDM) fosse ormai segnato. In occasione di una convention di analisti svoltasi nel 2013, un gruppo di esperti aveva espresso la convinzione che il fenomeno del BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) avrebbe portato a una forte riduzione dei prezzi, a un crollo delle vendite e alla fine di un intero settore. Così si rivolgeva l'analista di Gartner John Girard alla platea dei partecipanti (fonte: CRN.com): "Il mercato del Mobile Device Management è in pieno marasma e a mio parere ha i giorni contati". Girard prevedeva che il trend del BYOD e la refrattarietà dei dipendenti alla gestione dei dispositivi personali avrebbero reso necessaria la transizione verso un modello di gestione a livello di applicazione.
IT-Abteilungen müssen ihre BYOD-Anwender dazu anhalten, durch die Einbindung in enterprise mobility management (EMM) den unbefugten Zugriff auf Unternehmensnetzwerke zu minimieren und Sicherheitsverletzungen zu vermeiden. Um die Mitarbeiter von der Lösung zu überzeugen, müssen die Unternehmensleitung und das IT-Personal ihnen die Vorteile des Programms erläutern. Positionieren Sie BYOD als echten Vorteil. Mit BYOD können die Mitarbeiter selbst entscheiden, wie und mit welchem Gerät (etwa ihrem eigenen) sie arbeiten möchten. Auf den Geräten der Mitarbeiter sind in der Regel bereits Apps und Tools installiert, die die Benutzer als hilfreich betrachten. Dies erweist sich für Mitarbeiter wie Arbeitgeber als Vorteil. Die Betonung der Flexibilität und der Wahlmöglichkeiten von BYOD trägt dazu bei, dass das Programm als eine Lösung angenommen wird, die den Mitarbeitern eine höhere Produktivität und Effizienz ermöglicht.
As enterprises embrace adoption of Microsoft Office 365 to drive productivity by using the latest mobile applications and alleviate the complexity and costs associated with on-premise Exchange environments, achieving a balance between security and user experience is often difficult.

Microsoft made a massive push to the cloud in 2014, and as a result Office 365 is taking off. However, Office 365 is unlike any other cloud app in it's complexity.
Read this eGuide to learn how IT can eliminate the identity and mobility management that accompany an office 365 migration.
Enterprise mobility management and identity and access management offerings are moving toward meaningful integration. IAM and mobility leaders must take advantage to gain convenience, security and efficiency benefits.
Enterprise mobility management suites enable organizations to integrate and manage mobile devices in their IT infrastructures. End-user computing leaders must act amid rapid market changes to reach both short-term and long-term enterprise mobility objectives.
UEM is not limited to PCs, tablets and smartphones. Smart devices, broadly grouped as part of the IoT, will increasingly become included in UEM. Devices such as Apple TVs, printers and smartwatches are identifiable examples of IoT devices managed by EMM tools. However, not all IoT objects will fall under the realm of EMM tools. Some devices may be managed directly by manufacturers. Other types of devices will have proprietary management tools. And many devices will not need to be managed at all. However, it is clear that the diversity and number of devices will continue to grow, and IT organizations must be ready.

The modern organization has recognized the need to
embrace mobile devices in the workplace. Some have fully
implemented a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) program,
while some have adopted a hybrid model of corporateowned
and personally-enabled (COPE) devices. Many
companies then choose to deploy an Enterprise Mobility
Management (EMM) or Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solution to enable some control of the mobile devices
that access corporate data.
Mobile device management (MDM) tools allow companies to connect their employees securely to basic corporate network resources. Enterprise mobility management (EMM) goes a step further by enabling secure mobile versions of business-critical applications and data loss prevention to protect corporate information. But in today's workplace, employees and businesses deal with a vast variety of devices with different operating systems and form factors, from PCs and laptops, to tablets and smartphones, and now, increasingly wearables and Internet of Things (IoT) endpoints. The solution is unified endpoint management (UEM), which enables organizations to take a consistent approach to manage and secure every endpoint, any app and content, and across deployment use cases from a single holistic platform. Read this whitepaper to uncover VMware AirWatch®'s leading UEM approach that is benefiting organizations tremendously.
Like other IT leaders, you know you have to modernize your IT infrastructure to become more productive, efficient, agile and competitive. So what's holding you back? Many organizations are still devoting anywhere from 60% to 80% of their time, energy, human resources and budget to supporting legacy systems rather than develop transformative solutions.
Our new eBook, Your 3-step roadmap to IT modernization, will help you align your approach to IT with the way your business works today — and the way you will work in the digital age:
• Increased mobility, multiple device formats and distributed workgroups
• Greater collaboration with outside organizations, including customers, suppliers and partners
• Essential enterprise risk management features such as compliance, legal, security and data governance
Here you'll learn the three stages of IT modernization — from realigning your infrastructure to updating business processes — so you take the right steps.
• As the needs of organizations grow more complex, delivering enterprise content that addresses the shift to mobility, usability and flexibility are key.
