Today, IT Security Experts Ltd (ITSE) took the rare step of publicly releasing the name of the engine powering their Smartphone Managed Service. The product that drives the Smartphone Managed Service is MobileIron’s Virtual Smartphone Platform and is one of the first comprehensive iPhone and iPad device management. Not only does it secure and control iPhone and iPad, it also provides cross-manufacturer management of Blackberry, Palm, Windows Mobile (including the latest 6.5 release) and Android devices all from one Management Console

“As one of the elite Gold Partners in EMEA for MobileIron, we are now in the position where we can bring this solution to Enterprise, not just as a SaaS solution”,

“We have taken this unprecedented step of publicising the power of our Smartphone Managed Service as so many users have found this service unique and we have been inundated with requests by Enterprise Organisations who actually want to host the solution themselves, instead of using our SaaS model “ said Simon Earl, Technical Director of ITSE.

“As one of the few Gold Partners in EMEA for MobileIron, we are now in the position where we can bring this solution to Enterprise, not just as a SaaS solution”, he added.

MobileIron offers the self-service portal which is an incredibly user-friendly way to register a smartphone. A configuration profile will be sent to the iPhone, in which both the device configurations and security policies of the company - such as Pass code protection, etc. - are included. Only if it contains this profile, it can connect to the e-mail infrastructure of the company. If iPhones have been compromised by a jailbreak they will be automatically detected and blocked. In that way a company can be sure that the equipment meets the corporate guidelines.“ commented Adam Denyer-Hampton, Technical Support Manager for ITSE, “not only does MobileIron supports iPhone & iPad but covering Windows Mobile, Nokia, RIM (Blackberry) and Android (Q4 2010) smartphones provides a holistic scenario where all devices can be managed from one console.”
