WSO2 Enterprise Mobility Manager (EMM) comprises of two key aspects: Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Mobile Application Management (MAM). WSO2 EMM is 100% open source and is developed on top of WSO2 Carbon for greater scalability and interoperability. EMM enables organizations to secure, manage and monitor Android, iOS and Windows devices (i.e., smartphones, iPod touch devices and  tablet PCs), on both corporate and personal (employee-owned) devices, irrespective of the mobile operator, service provider or the organization. The WSO2 EMM architecture diagram is as follows:

The following table lists out the modules pertaining to the architecture of WSO2 EMM, which is depicted in the above figure:

Mobile Device Management (MDM)The Mobile Device Management (MDM) module enables the administrator to manage the devices that are registered with EMM. WSO2 EMM is designed to have a plugin architecture giving it the ability to implement new device platforms and plug them easily. As a result, WSO2 EMM has the Android, iOS, and Windows platforms plugged into the MDM core.
Policy management

The Policy management module that is in the Mobile Device Management core is used to manage the EMM policies. Policies created by the EMM administrator will be applied on the devices that register with WSO2 EMM based on the policy enforcement criteria.

For more information on policy management, see Managing Policies.

Operation management

The Operation management module manages the operations that take place in the EMM, such as device lock, enterprise wipe, clear password and much more.

For more information on the operations supported by WSO2 EMM for each mobile platform, see Allowed Device Operations.

Mobile Application Management (MAM)

The app management module enables organizations to control the corporate applications on mobile devices that are registered with EMM.

The following consoles are used to manage mobile applications:

  • Publisher
    Users who belong to the publisher role can use the Publisher to publish, unpublish, deprecate or retire their mobile apps. While users who belong to the reviewer role can approve or reject mobile apps, which are submitted for approval.
  • Store
    Users can use the Store to discover mobile apps easily and install apps to their own mobile devices.
User managementThe user management module enables administrators to manage the WSO2 EMM users. If required, administrators can connect their own user store to WSO2 EMM.
Configuration managementThe configuration management module enables the tenant administrators to customize their general, Android and iOS settings.
Compliance monitoringCompliance monitoring is done so that the EMM can check if the devices violate any of the policies applied and take necessary actions.
EMM Console

Administrators can use the EMM Console to manage users, policies, apply operations and more.
