When an enterprise has several offices across the country or even world-wide, Mobile Content Management (MCM) becomes an even greater challenge. With hundreds or thousands of employees, content tends to pile up quickly, so the question becomes, who’s responsible for managing all of your company’s mobile content?
It doesn’t have to be the responsibility of just one person.
Role-based administrative control is valuable for enterprises that create mass amounts of content and then must distribute it to a large mobile workforce. AirWatch Secure Content Locker brings flexibility, organization and team-work to content management. With Secure Content Locker, IT has the ability to assign a variety of content-related privileges to IT administrators throughout an enterprise. For smaller organizations a single individual can manage both devices and content. However, a large or global organization, has the capability to spread out the responsibility to as many admins as necessary.
There is no black or white answer to how content admins should be organized in your enterprise – each company is different. Role-based access provides organizations with a variety of options when choosing who should manage content. Because individual admins can be assigned to specific groups within an organization, enterprises can take a more granular approach. This strategy is commonly used in global organizations. Role-based admin control can be assigned based on locale or language which gives enterprises that operate across borders more control of world-wide content distribution.

Assigning user roles and access
Administrators tasked with managing and distributing content have the advantage of assigning user specific access and privileges from within the AirWatch console. When integrating with your corporate network, users are given the same access to documents that they would have if they were working on a PC, laptop or Mac. This simplifies the synchronization of files and folders across multiple devices, and Secure Content Locker doesn’t require rearranging your corporate infrastructure for mobile content distribution.
User specific access can be determined by the admin. Restrictions include features such as allowing offline viewing, restricted sharing, disabling editing and limiting users to Wi-Fi only downloads.
