Enterprise Mobility Management

Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) is a centralized solution for managing mobile device access to institutional data. With the increase of mobile devices accessing UT System data, a transformation in the way we work is taking place. EMM allows this transformation to take place while protecting both mobile devices and UT System data.

Personal mobile devices, unlike institution-owned mobile devices, are not configured by technical support staff for basic security controls. EMM enables institutions to accommodate user access to institutional data while conforming to UT System policies and procedures for device configuration and safeguarding data. EMM components strive to make access to UT System data simple, straightforward, and secure.
