Bringing simplicity to Enterprise Mobility Management

April 25, 2016 | Posted by: Meghan Donovan
Simple to use enterprise applications can sometimes seem like a misnomer. While enterprise software has remained complex, consumer software has gravitated towards simplicity. For Google Apps administrators, we believe in providing an EMM solution that’s as simple to operate as changing your personal Gmail settings, all the while delivering enterprise-grade security. We recently launched three new capabilities that make it easier for Apps admins to set up mobile management and define policies:
  • Mobile Management can now be set up with one click  By simply clicking MANAGE NOW on the Admin console landing page, admins can set up Mobile Management with a predefined set of security policies:
  • Android for Work can now be set up with one click No longer must admins complete fifteen steps spread across different pages in the admin console, cutting and pasting security tokens, to set up Android for Work. With a single click, admins can begin managing and whitelisting mobile apps (MAM) for their Android for Work devices in their domain:
  • Device management settings are now easier to find and use With the continued evolution of our device management and application management capabilities, an ever-growing list of policy settings on a single page has become unwieldy for admins. Hence, we’ve redesigned the device management experience by logically categorizing all device policy settings, making them easier to find and use:
  • Enterprise mobile devices can now be managed from anywhere, anytime With the latest version of Google Admin App, we now offer mobile device management capabilities at admins’ fingertips. Our admins don’t need to reach their desk to handle a device security breach. They can view the list of all managed devices and take remote actions like account wipe or even block user devices right from our Admin app anywhere, anytime:
 

As we continue to improve Google Mobile Management, our goal will always be to make it simple for admins to keep their employees productive while keeping work data secure on their mobile devices.
