Mobile Device Management

Employees increasingly choose to do their work on mobile devices running modern operating systems like Android, iOS, and Windows 10 instead of using traditional PCs and Windows based tools. The security challenge with modern operating systems is very different from those of the legacy PC era and they need a new approach and new technology. Modern operating systems address many of the old security issues but they also create new and complex security requirements. Enterprise data now lives in both corporate and consumer apps and cloud storage repositories.

Android, iOS, and the new generation of Windows have shifted from the open file system of traditional Windows to a new, sandboxed architecture. The OS kernel is also protected, resulting in system stability and ease of update. The protected file system and protected kernel eliminate the threat of traditional malware and the need for virtualization, VPN and other legacy technologies.

Enterprise mobility and Bring Your Own Device BYOD is a young but exceptionally fast-growing industry. As a result, many vendors claim to provide security and management solutions, and it becomes very difficult for IT to separate fact from fiction.

Security Meter solution is based on MobileIron technology - the recognized leader in MDM.

Architecture

  • Policy and configuration engine to ensure mobile apps, docs, and devices can be managed end-to-end at global scale. The engine is called the MobileIron VSP for on premise deployments and the MobileIron Connected Cloud for cloud deployments.
