What is MobileIron EMM?

MobileIron software is used by companies in securing and managing business documents, apps and content on mobile devices such as phones and tablets.

It includes an admin console for IT teams and an app that employees can download to their devices from Google Play store or an app store. This console can be used by IT admins to set management and security rules.

The app offers IT departments the information on devices and their security states including data such as country, carrier, model and make of devices, phone numbers, operating system version and corporate email.

The MobileIron EMM and mobile device management software gives you the fundamental IT controls and visibility you need for security, management and monitoring of company or employee-owned mobile devices and/or desktops that access critical business data.

Mobile EMM is a modern and secure solution for enterprise-wide mobile device management, and allows corporates across the globe to transform business through enabling BYOD so as to become entities that are Mobile First.

It does all these things and more through application of policies to Android, iOS and Windows devices, with a high flexibility level for employees and companies.

Organizations get the assurance of a strong platform which increases productivity in employees while securing the company data.

However, there’s more that IT admins can do than just managing a fleet of devices. Companies can use this MDM software to supervise POS systems, mobile kiosks and shared devices, making it a complete solution for enterprise mobility management (EMM).

The company was founded by Suresh Batchu and Ajay Mishra in 2007, and has its headquarters in Mountain View, California.

Benefits

Simple device enrollment

With MobileIron EMM, employees can enroll their devices and desktops quickly in MDM via a seamless set up process once powered on. It eases concerns over privacy with easy to read and clear policy guidelines for Windows, Android, macOS, and iOS operating systems. The self service portal lets users manage tasks done commonly without assistance from IT. Visual policy guidelines for privacy also help staff understand how their privacy is protected by MDM.

Mobile Fleet Monitoring

IT admins can adopt mobile-based workflows while managing POS systems, kiosks and much more, thus they can monitor use of these systems from an admin console ensuring compliance to security. Enterprises thus need software to manage mobile devices and their mobile fleets.

Automated device setup

MobileIron EMM lets you simplify configuration while reducing helpdesk calls. Devices that are registered are configured automatically with corporate connectivity settings, device specific restrictions and email profiles. You can connect instantly over VPN and WiFi profiles, secure access to emails for business via support for POP, Exchange and IMAP, and deploy enterprise apps through the app store.

Easy tracking of devices

With MobileIron EMM, companies can manage and secure their company devices centrally while enforcing screen locks and requiring passwords and usernames on each device. If a device is lost, misplaced, or stolen, you can easily track its location and wipe its data or lock the device itself.

Mobile access control and secure connectivity

MobileIron EMM gives authorized users access (secure) to business data without re-entering passwords, manually establishing VPN or other tasks that are disruptive. They can leverage existing stores for identification like Active Directory, while the certificate based authentication prevents exploits like man-in-the-middle.

Device compliance and policy enforcement

IT admins can manage policies by groups of employees so there’s more granular control over when and which firmware to update. Device policy enforcement and compliance, as well as restrictions are included for admins to get more granular controls for download of software in the Apple Mac App store.

Modern perimeter security

Data isn’t just limited to data centers or devices owned by the company; it lives on clouds and devices you own and those you don’t own. It also criss-crosses networks you don’t or do own, and this modern perimeter is what needs a security approach which MobileIron EMM provides for endpoint and cloud security.

Mobile-aware IT infrastructure

MobileIron EMM integrates with corporate directories, network access control systems and IT service management software among other IT systems. It also integrates MDM with NAC to avoid devices that aren’t registered from accessing resources through WiFi, with ServiceNow to streamline asset management for IT, and consolidation of IT systems reporting through Splunk Forwarder.

Umbrella Management

Companies can remotely manage a fleet of mobile devices without compromising security. Through this, IT admins can manage device lifecycle from deploying, monitoring and retiring of policies. It also helps IT departments be less stressed as users connect through a self-service portal and IT enforces security settings on the devices enrolled to prevent non-security compliant activities like jail breaking. This ensures companies keep data from illegal use while allowing flexibility and freedom to employees over their choice of devices.

BYOD Support

MobileIron EMM enables seamless device enrollment, better time management and reduced helpdesk calls, thus worker productivity also increases as employees can work with their mobile devices immediately. The data is also protected, whether private or belonging to the company, while apps are isolated as they co-exist. Decisions are thus no longer centralized and are made swiftly, triggering impactful action where and when it should happen.

Secure Enterprise Applications

A secure platform is available for employee productivity to be better as companies selectively configure email and other app settings across different operating systems and mobile platforms. They can be assured that their data isn’t accessed by unauthorized apps and users, or potential threats. Identity, device and apps trust makes all of this work, as trust determines who can access what info and where.

Private and Secure System

MobileIron EMM helps staff and their companies be sure of protection from malware. Data is encrypted and separated using app containerization that keeps it away from employees’ personal files.

They can also enroll specific users for pre-releasing of apps without user interaction.

Granular Policy Settings

IT admins can manage policies by groups of employees so there’s more granular control over when and which firmware to update. Device policy enforcement and compliance, as well as restrictions are included for admins to get more granular controls for download of software in the Apple Mac App store. Granular compliance configurations and policy settings let you adapt the security so as to match particular requirements in your bueinss. You can also enforce device settings for passcodes, protect data using encryption and DLP settings, selectively wipe and quarantine business data from devices that are non-compliant, and meet regulatory guidelines defined by HIPAA, PCI and CJIS.

Automatic Data Push

Through the Samsung E-FOTA, IT admins can manage and push selected device firmware versions to users who have Samsung devices supported by the platform.

IT Service Management

MobileIron expands on its EMM capabilities for desktops using Mac OS. Before this release, admins of MobileIron Core could only install the apps through the Mac App Store. With Core 9.6, they can install custom and in-house apps too. Additional features are available for DLP improvement for Macs. They can also implement restrictions on disc burning to enable/disable it, and this prevents loss of data through enablement of granular media disc operation control, plus controlling new restrictions in macOS 10.13.

MobileIron EMM lets you simplify configuration while reducing helpdesk calls. Devices that are registered are configured automatically with corporate connectivity settings, device specific restrictions and email profiles.
