MobileIron and Fixmo Partnership Pairs Leading Mobile IT Platform with Federal-Grade System Integrity Controls Combined Solution Allows Mobile First Government Initiatives to Move Beyond BlackBerry
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. and TORONTO, Canada and STERLING, Va., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, and Fixmo, a leading provider of mobile security and data protection solutions, today announced a partnership to provide federal government agencies with the most fully featured and secure solution for their Mobile First initiatives. By combining MobileIron's security and management platform with Fixmo's federally compliant system integrity controls, government agencies can confidently move beyond BlackBerry and give users the ability to choose the devices that will make them most productive.
"Until now, federal agencies had very limited choices for mobility," said Bob Tinker, CEO, MobileIron. "They could use BlackBerry or third-party email containers, but neither option made users happy. Our partnership with Fixmo gives them an alternative that is far superior: the most comprehensive Mobile IT platform combined with the deepest system integrity controls to meet all federal requirements for Mobile First initiatives."
The partnership will allow government customers to use Fixmo Sentinel Integrity Services with the MobileIron platform to enforce system integrity by preventing OS tampering, policy violations, and unverified third-party apps.
"Like every other employer, government agencies want to enable their users to use devices that make them most productive, and that means delivering support for iOS and Android," said Rick Segal, CEO, Fixmo. "By working with MobileIron, we give our joint public-sector customers the tools they need to improve user satisfaction and the controls they need to ensure security and federal compliance. This partnership removes all the barriers to expanding their mobile deployments."
