Solutions Review recently attended MobileIron LIVE! 2019, the annual enterprise mobile, desktop, and security conference. While we recorded live on the ground in Brooklyn, we spoke with the experts and featured speakers attending the conference. Additionally, MobileIron announced a significant release of a mobile-centric zero trust platform.
Throughout our interviews at MobileIron LIVE! 2019, we discussed major enterprise concerns including mobile security, identity, mobile strategy, and success. We asked them about enterprise mobility strategies and how enterprises can achieve success and security with their mobile management. We hope these interviews help you to learn as much as we did about the present and future of the space.
Check out the full interviews below:
Simon Biddiscombe of MobileIron
President and CEO of MobileIron, Simon Biddiscombe discusses the risks enterprises face on a day-to-day basis, the shift to the cloud, and perimeter security. He describes how the traditional infrastructures no longer apply in a world of mobile devices connecting to cloud frameworks. Additionally, he discusses modern enterprise mobility management necessities, such as the visibility of stored data, zero trust, and the streamlined end-user experience without usernames and passwords.
Dilip Patel of MobileIron
Dilip Patel is the Senior Vice President of Customer Success for MobileIron. He mentions that successful customer interaction is not just a matter of helping a customer learn the product. Instead, Patel believes that the true test of customer success comes when a client is having serious issues with the product. Working with the customer to help solve their problem, Patel says, is the best way to maintain a user’s satisfaction with a service.
Dr. Chase Cunningham of Forrester Research
Dr. Chase Cunningham, Principal Analyst of Security & Risk at Forrester Research, gave one of the featured speeches at MobileIron LIVE! 2019. Afterward, we spoke with him about the concept of zero trust, moving away from the digital perimeter, and how cybersecurity should operate without interfering with the end user experience. Moreover, Cunningham argues for the importance of strategizing against cyber threats by understanding your IT infrastructure and mobile environment.
Theresa Payton of Fortalice Solutions
Founder, President, and CEO of Fortalice Solutions and former White House CIO Theresa Payton sat down with Doug Atkinson to discuss passwords.

Additionally, she describes the power of step-up authentication and the contextualization of access across the remote enterprise. Payton argues for a change of thinking from blaming the user for breaches to creating safety nets around their business processes.
