Mobile devices, particularly smartphones, are exceptionally vulnerable to security breaches. They are easily lost, are filled with unknown applications, communicate over untrusted networks, and are often purchased by users without regard to IT standards and security features.
Ninety-nine percent of the enterprise workforce currently uses mobile devices – smart phones and tablets – to perform their jobs today. Nearly 60 percent of security leaders describe their organizations as either partially or fully mobile, deriving enhanced productivity and other business benefits.
Reflecting on the survey results provides the opportunity to take a broad view of enterprise mobility and realize how business transformation has begun. Nearly all enterprises now incorporate mobility in their work, and a majority now sees tangible business results from mobility. Organizations are seeing greater efficiencies and productivity from mobile workers.
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.

Enterprise mobility started with the Blackberry, a revolutionary
messaging device that solved security concerns by giving IT
managers the ability to set many restrictions on its functionality. In the following years, employees started using fully-functional, internet-capable smartphones in their personal lives and demanded the same capabilities at work.
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.
