Mobile information management (MIM) is a device-agnostic security strategy that involves keeping sensitive data encrypted and allowing only approved applications to access or transmit it.

Despite its promise, mobile information management faces significant obstacles in the enterprise mobility management (EMM) market. The major roadblock has to do with integration; MIM vendors will have to develop standards or partnerships with manufacturers and developers so their devices and apps can read and process the protections placed on data.
