Support for COPE and BYOD
Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) is a business model in which an organization provides its employees with mobile devices and allows the employees to use them as if they were personally owned tablets or smartphones.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) empowers employees to work from anywhere by allowing them to securely access business-critical data from their personal devices, instead of corporate-owned devices.
MobileRMM provides a way to deal with both groups of users. Unfortunately, iOS and Android approaches to dealing with BYOD and COPE devices are different but result in similar functionality. ensures that only managed documents and apps are wiped from the personal device.
In a BYOD environment, IT can prevent sharing of sensitive information outside of the work profile by enforcing copy/paste restrictions on devices. Only corporate data and apps are managed and not personal apps and data.
Google Android supports both COPE and BYOD devices with their Android for Enterprise functionality.
Apple iOS supports both COPE and BYOD devices with their management framework to create profiles seamlessly manage corporate apps and data separately from personal apps and data. A selective device wipe ensures that only managed documents and apps are wiped from the personal device.
