Bring Your Own HTC Device: MobileIron and HTC Team Up to Enhance Security for Enterprise Apps, Data and Devices
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, data and devices, today announced a collaboration with HTC Corporation, a global leader in mobile innovation and design, to provide an integrated, standardized enterprise mobility solution for global customers. This collaboration will take place through HTCPro(TM), a program that provides mobile solutions for companies and their employees and ensures that HTC’s entire portfolio is business-ready.
“Android has faced barriers to entry in the enterprise because customers need to know that they can manage and secure Android apps and devices without needing additional resources,” said Bob Tinker, CEO, MobileIron. “By working with HTC, we are making it easy for our global customers to welcome a whole category of Android devices into their companies.”
“Many organizations already allow employees to access corporate systems and information through personally-owned, corporate-approved mobile devices. To mitigate security risks and minimize IT administration, however, they need a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program that balances corporate security with user choice,” said David Jaeger, executive director of global enterprise and services for HTC and head of HTCpro. “MobileIron software, used in conjunction with HTC devices, gives customers an out of the box solution that delivers enterprise-grade security enhancements and is easy to manage, enabling them to implement a ‘BYOD by HTC’ policy.”
The variation of features across OS versions and devices themselves makes it challenging for IT to know which devices are enterprise-ready. HTCpro delivers consistent enterprise enablement across all HTC devices. The combination of HTC devices and MobileIron software gives IT departments essential enterprise features to increase security in a mobile working environment:
- Remote lock/wipe
- Remote email configuration
- Remote VPN and Wi-Fi configuration
- Certificates store
- Secure app provisioning
Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s Magic Quadrant for Mobile Device Management Software, MobileIron has been chosen by thousands of organizations that are transforming their businesses through Mobile IT. Available as an on-premise or a cloud solution, MobileIron was purpose-built to secure and manage mobile apps, data, and devices for global companies.
