Manage and Secure content on devices

Mobile devices boost productivity in organizations by allowing employees to access corporate content from anywhere and at any time. In such mobile-first organizations, making the required corporate content securely available on the devices becomes the top most priority. This is because once corporate content is available on the devices it increases the chances of unauthorized access and data breaches as users tend to access corporate content using third-party apps and backup the data on third-party cloud services.

What is Mobile Content Management?

Mobile Content Management (MCM) allows admins to securely share corporate content such as documents and media files to devices using a mobile device management (MDM) solution. In addition to sharing documents, mobile content management encompasses various configurations and restrictions that can be applied to the devices to ensure the corporate data is not accessed by unauthorised users.

The most common sources of data breaches are:

  • Sharing corporate data between corporate and personal apps
  • Accessing corporate data from unauthorised devices
  • Data backup on third-party cloud services

  • Automatic content update: Admins can automatically update the content on the devices by uploading the new version on the MDM server.
