Advanced Security and Management for Android Devices

THE CHALLENGE: Users love the Android experience and want that same experience at work. IT departments must now provision, secure, and manage corporate and employee-owned Android devices as they do other platforms.

THE SOLUTION: MobileIron enables companies to deploy Android devices at scale by bridging the gap between the security IT needs and the experience end users demand. The MobileIron platform includes a server that is up and running in your corporate network in less than a day, plus a MobileIron Android app that is available for download on the Android Market.

MobileIron supports enterprise-ready Samsung. In the United States, this is part of Samsung's SAFE program. As part of this program, the MobileIron Android solution has integrated an additional set of advanced security and application capabilities above and beyond those supported by the base Android operating system.

In addition, MobileIron has partnered with NitroDesk to provide remote configuration and security for NitroDesk’s TouchDown™ app on Android smartphones and tablets.  TouchDown™ is the most secure ActiveSync-based enterprise email, contacts, calendar, and tasks solution, now manageable through the leading mobile management solution.  You can find the TouchDown apps on Google Play here.
