I don't think the mobility manager has any privileges beyond standard android permissions like android.permission.CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE or android.permission.CHANGE_WIFI_STATE.
There is also the McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management; I don't know exactly what it does but it seems like not much. You can shell over what is presumably a lot of $$$ so McAffee's app gives you a button to show the apps that you have to install yourself
Of course Lenovo saved itself the trouble of providing a backup solution, so there is no backup. In the strange Lenovo parallel universe, this is apparently acceptable for a business device.
