MobileIron Moves from Traditional MDM into full Scale EMM
With the Mobile Device Management (MDM) space expanding and taking on a more robust Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) approach we wanted to share another piece from MSPmentor that hightlights specifically what one company has done with their mobility solutions.
The article takes a closer look at what MobileIron has done to expand their EMM platform and offerings as their plan to go public in the near future. The company who has long been a leader in the traditional MDM space has been very active in expanding their offerings as enterprises begin to realize the whole capabilities of enterprise mobility and become more sophisticated. They have addressed a few key areas such as mobile business intelligence (BI), support capabilities and app security. Here is a quick rundown of how they expanded their offerings in each of these categories as MSPmentor reports it.
Mobile Business Intelligence
“Through its integration with Splunk Inc. (SPLK), a real-time operational intelligence platform, MobileIron said customers will now be able to receive critical information to support threat detection, problem resolution and strategic decision-making, providing customers with additional mobile business intelligence.”
Advanced Support Capabilities
“The platform update also includes Help@Work, a new way for employees to share Apple(AAPL) iOS device screens with help desk personnel. This feature allows employees to show tech support the problem, instead of just describing the details of the issue.”
“To connect apps to enterprise systems, the company integrated MobileIron Tunnel, a per app virtual private network (VPN), with its platform. This enables organizations to authorize both internally-built apps and App Store apps to access corporate resources behind the firewall.”
