BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) vs. Company-owned devices: How does EMM differ?

While EMM can be used to manage both BYOD and company-owned devices, the implementation of security and management functionalities can differ. For instance, IT enforces stricter security policies on employee-owned devices for accessing company data, but may not have control over the applications that are installed on these devices.
