Mobile Content Management (MCM)
Also known as mobile information management (MIM), mobile content management typically falls within the overarching Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) philosophy along with other mobile security initiatives like mobile device management (MDM) mobile application management (MAM) and mobile security management (MSM).
A well-designed mobile content management strategy enables employees to securely access mission-critical enterprise data and collaborate with other employees across any network or mobile device without being slowed down or restricted from data they need access to for their work function.

Striking a Balance Between Productivity and Security with MCM
As a result, solutions from mobile content management seek to provide the ideal balance between worker productivity and business content-related mobile security. MCM enables employees to efficiently access their work documents, spreadsheets, email, schedules, presentations and other enterprise data while working remotely while also ensuring the security of the enterprise's data residing on the mobile device or transmitted across networks.
MCM differs from other mobile security initiatives in that it focuses specifically on data, and in many cases collaboration on data among co-workers, rather than on the devices or applications that utilize the data. Mobile Content Management involves the encryption of sensitive data and ensuring that only authorized applications can access, transmit or store this data using strong password protection.
