MobileIron Secures Over Five Million Mobile Devices Used by Frontline Workers

MobileIron's unified endpoint management (UEM) platform provides robust security and management, resulting in increased frontline workforce productivity and customer engagement

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 26, 2020 - MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the company that introduced the industry's first mobile-centric, zero trust platform for the enterprise, today announced that it has secured over five million mobile devices used by frontline workers. Organizations across agriculture, healthcare, law enforcement, manufacturing, retail, transportation and utilities industries rely on MobileIron's comprehensive unified endpoint management (UEM) platform to secure devices used by frontline workers, resulting in improved workforce efficiency and customer engagement.

'We are committed to helping organizations empower frontline workers with the tools they need to succeed, while also increasing security and protecting against emerging threats,' said Brian Foster, SVP of product management at MobileIron. 'We help organizations to deploy, manage and secure mobile devices with critical business apps that frontline workers need, increasing workforce efficiency and customer engagement. We also provide an easy way for IT to track the devices, protect them against mobile attacks, wipe apps and data, and ultimately retire them.'

With MobileIron's UEM platform, organizations can achieve complete control over their business data and increase frontline worker productivity. MobileIron's platform validates every device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user. It allows for continuous enforcement and protection of data, both on the device and on the network, resulting in a secure mobile work experience.

'According to IDC data, more than one third of corporate liable mobile devices are deployed in a dedicated single purpose model, which we'd classify as frontline worker devices,' said Phil Hochmuth, Program Vice President, Enterprise Mobility and Client Endpoint Management, IDC. 'Organizations need a unified endpoint management solution to manage these devices at scale. With platforms such as MobileIron's, IT can ensure that devices are always in a secure state, while frontline workers can access corporate data anytime, anywhere.'

Below are a few examples of organizations that have achieved frontline worker success with MobileIron:

  • Signature HealthCARE: Healthcare workers leverage mobile devices secured by MobileIron to securely access patient files, decreasing manual paperwork and enhancing healthcare outcomes.
  • Cepa: Dock workers leverage mobile devices secured by MobileIron to access various HR applications, saving travel time for the dock workers and transforming mobile recruitment.
  • National beauty supply retailer with over 10,000 field reps: Field sales staff use mobile devices secured by MobileIron to access product collateral and take orders on iPads, reducing printing costs and increasing customer satisfaction.
  • European transportation company serving over 11 million passengers annually: Train drivers and managers use mobile devices and apps secured by MobileIron to improve the customer experience through reduced maintenance times and improved operational efficiencies both on the trains and in the depot.

MobileIron UEM allows IT to assign role-based access to individual groups and users through a single management console, which is critical as frontline workers frequently share devices. Organizations can also build upon MobileIron UEM with enabling technologies such as zero sign-on (ZSO) user and device authentication, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD).

About MobileIron
MobileIron is redefining enterprise security with the industry's first mobile-centric, zero trust platform built on the foundation of unified endpoint management (UEM) to secure access and protect data across the perimeter-less enterprise. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by a 'never trust, always verify' approach. MobileIron goes beyond identity management and gateway approaches by utilizing a more comprehensive set of attributes before granting access. A mobile-centric, zero trust approach validates the device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user.

The MobileIron security platform is built on the foundation of award-winning and industry-leading unified endpoint management (UEM) capabilities with additional zero trust-enabling technologies, including zero sign-on (ZSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD). Over 19,000 customers, including the world's largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies and other highly regulated companies, have chosen MobileIron to enable a seamless and secure user experience by ensuring only authorized users, devices, apps, and services can access business resources.
