Difference between CPPM and MDM

Hi Airheads, Good Day! As of now, MDM is not broadening their scope having even BYOD laptops in their portfolio. May question is, what is now the difference between the NAC (CPPM) and a MDM/EMM? What are the technical differences between the 2 systems? Thanks


Re: Difference between CPPM and MDM

The answer is potentially very long, but in short


MDM/MEM - Manages the Device and the Content on the device.

NAC - Authenticates the device onto the network when it authN's over wireless/wired or VPN network and looks to ensure the device is healthy based upon device/user posture to stay on the network in its current role/state.

Good Day!
But the EMM nowadays can do what NAC can do right? Specially device posturing? What is/are advantages between the NAC and an EMM/MDM?

No. EMM solutions do not do network access control fuctions.
