Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
LetMobile (http://www.letmobile.com), a leading provider of Secure Corporate Collaboration Solutions for Personal Mobile Devices, today announced deployment of their Secure Mobile E-mail product by ECI Telecom (http://www.ecitele.com), a global provider of next-generation network solutions. ECI chose LetMobile to power their “Bring Your Own Device” initiative, and enable their employees to securely access corporate mail, calendar and contacts from personal mobile devices.
Given the proliferation of smart phones, ECI wanted to meet employees’ demands to access corporate mail from their personal devices. To make this a reality, ECI needed to address security first and foremost: corporate data must not be placed at risk in the personal mobile environment. In addition, as a global company, ECI needed a solution that would be easy and cost-effective to deploy to a distributed workforce using a large variety of devices and subject to a number of different regulations. Finally, ECI wanted a solution that users would willingly accept, and that would enable them to demonstrate compliance. While ECI uses an MDM (Mobile Device Management) solution for some of their corporate devices, they believed that full-scale MDM was too expensive and intrusive for a BYOD initiative.
ECI evaluated a number of solutions and found that LetMobile Secure Mobile E-mail best met their requirements for security and compliance, low total cost of ownership, and positive user experience. The company rolled out a pilot program in November 2011, and moved into deployment in December. Today, hundreds of ECI employees are using LetMobile to securely access their corporate mail from their personal iPhone, iPad, Android and other mobile devices.
“With LetMobile, we can secure corporate information and comply with regulations in multiple regions, while enabling employees to access their corporate mail from their personal mobile devices,” said Yuval Illuz, Head of Global Infrastructure, IT Innovation and Information Security at ECI. “We have a large number of employees at many sites, using a growing number of devices. LetMobile gave us the flexibility and low cost of ownership that we needed to meet this challenge. Just as important, LetMobile works within the employees’ original, native mail apps and does not interfere with their personal use of the device. As a result, we’ve been able to eliminate all direct access to corporate mail outside of the LetMobile secure gateway.”
“We are very pleased that ECI Telecom has chosen LetMobile to secure their BYOD program,” said Dror Todress, CEO of LetMobile. “The large deployment at ECI on a variety of devices demonstrates that our Secure Mobile Gateway approach is optimal for personal mobile devices. It is virtually transparent to end-users, yet provides the ultimate in security – data that is not stored on the device cannot be lost, stolen or hacked.”
