BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, announces that on Feb. 26, 2013 MobileIron Version 5 Complete Enterprise Persona won Best Enterprise Mobile Service at the 18th Annual Global Mobile awards, held at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. MobileIron V5 delivers the first complete enterprise persona for managing and securing mobile apps and content.
The Business Problem
Companies worry about losing mobile data via multiple avenues. Email attachments can be uploaded to Dropbox. Devices are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks if an employee connects to an unsecure Wi-Fi hotspot. Malevolent apps can extract sensitive data from corporate apps. Historically, Mobile IT has favoured security over user experience. As a result, employees were forced to flip between enterprise and personal screens on their device, or use a third-party email app instead of the native experience they loved. Not only did these approaches compromise productivity, but they also created security risks as employees figured out workarounds.
MobileIron V5 has eliminated the need to compromise between security and user experience by introducing three features unique to the market: Docs@Work, AppConnect, and AppTunnel. These features containerize apps, documents, email attachments, and SharePoint to provide data loss prevention (DLP) controls while preserving the native experience.
"In 2013, enterprises are going Mobile First and, if their initiatives are going to be successful, they must be able to separate business data into an enterprise persona that can be managed separately from personal data," said Bob Tinker, CEO of MobileIron. "This award recognizes our product leadership in creating a clear separation between business and personal data while preserving the user experience. Now, even the most highly regulated customers can go Mobile First and focus on delivering mobile apps, content, and tools."
