If your data ends up in the wrong hands, it can be exploited. Mobiles come expensive, companies, these days are letting employees use their mobiles for work, but with this, comes a set of limitations.

What Is MBM (Mobile Browsing Management?)
Mobile browsing management fundamentally implies remote control of an employee’s cell phone. Every mobile must be “enlisted” into MDM with a specific end goal to get to organization information. On account of Google Apps for Work this can incorporate work messages, date-books, records and envelopes (through Google Drive) and different applications accessible from Google Play.
For an Android gadget to be selected into your Google Apps for Work environment, a couple of basic criteria must be met. The first is a ‘Work Profile’.

The third is screen bolt (PIN code, facial acknowledgment and unique mark scanners are all screen bolt/open strategies) and the fourth is for the gadget to be “approved” through the Google Apps for Work organization range.
What Does A ‘Work Profile’ Do?
Once the mobile is selected, the client can introduce pre-endorsed (or ‘whitelisted’) applications on their work profile and get to organization information through them. For instance, on the off chance that you add a work email deliver to Gmail on a ‘Work Profile’ then this should be endorsed by an overseer in Google Apps for Work. Whenever affirmed, Gmail can be utilized inside that profile as ordinary.
