AMSTERDAM and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bol.com is the leading online retailer in the Netherlands and Belgium with 7 million customers, owned by Ahold Delhaize. Many of bol.com's employees also work outside of the office, so the ability to secure business apps and data on mobile devices is a top priority. Bol.com evaluated the top enterprise mobility management (EMM) platforms and ultimately selected MobileIron (NASDAQ: MOBL), the security backbone for the digital enterprise. As its implementation partner, bol.com chose BLAUD for its expertise in the setup, configuration, support, and ongoing management of the MobileIron platform.

"With MobileIron, we were able to meet our most important mobility goals right away," said Gerard Abma, Manager Office Automation at bol.com. "We have enabled employees to use secure corporate or employee-owned mobile devices for work. We can wipe sensitive information from lost or stolen devices. We are looking forward to implementing the next phase of our mobility plan with MobileIron."
Secure Mobile Productivity
Bol.com's critical EMM requirements included the ability to provide secure access to email and applications on both iOS and Android devices, whether corporate-owned or BYOD. To secure corporate email, bol.com uses native email for iOS devices, and provides the choice between Email+ from MobileIron and native email for Android devices.
"Secure apps and data are critical for us," Abma continued. "With MobileIron, we have the confidence of knowing that our apps and data are secure on every mobile device we manage. If an employee leaves the company, or if a device is ever lost or stolen, we can wipe all the apps and data from that device to ensure that data doesn't fall into the wrong hands."
Making IT Mobile
Bol.com also relies on MobileIron Web@Work to manage wiki information via Web@Work. Both IT staff and business employees can securely access relevant information via mobile devices. As a result, staff no longer have to rely on a desktop workstation or laptop to securely access information.
