As part of its rapidly expanding managed services offerings, du – the UAE’s integrated telecommunications service provider, today announced the launch of Mobile Device Management (MDM), offering both on-premise and cloud based solutions for businesses to manage corporate data on personal mobile devices of their employees built on MobileIron, the leading platform for securing and managing mobile apps, documents, and devices.
du’s MDM solution provides a secure gateway that connects the end-user to the organisation to retrieve and share corporate data, to back-end enterprise resources like Exchange, app and web servers and SharePoint. MDM permits employees to securely view email attachments, secure access to SharePoint docs and secure on-device storage. In addition, there is no ‘Open in’ access for rogue apps and organisational data can be deleted in the case of a lost device.
du MDM provides a one stop, highly configurable, cross-platform solution that is compatible with any mobile device used by any employee. Offered in collaboration with MobileIron, the MDM solution provided by du is purpose-built for Mobile IT providing end-to-end integrated security for multiple operating systems, data loss prevention (DLP) controls for email attachments, certificate-based identity, app and document containerisation, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) privacy protection, and automated closed-loop compliance.
Farid Faraidooni, Chief Commercial Officer, du, said: “More and more companies realise, that in the fast paced lives of employees today, they prefer the convenience of using their personal mobile devices for work which would entail organisations monitoring their devices, without compromising any employee’s privacy. Additionally, this proves to be a challenge for an organisations IT department to maintain control of sensitive information. Our MDM is the ideal managed services solution to maintaining the privacy of each employee, while also maintaining security and control over which individuals are able to access these files. All the data is encrypted prior to transfer with MobileIron providing delivery, configuration, data-in-motion, and data-at-rest protection for email, applications, documents and web services.”
The solution is available on the cloud as well as an on-premise model scaling to thousands of devices, supported by MobileIron VSP for on-premise deployments and the MobileIron Connected Cloud for cloud deployments.
Bob Tinker, CEO, MobileIron, said: “du’s ability to innovate and provide exceptional communication services to its customers makes it a leader in the UAE’s telecommunication industry. Mobile is radically changing how people do their work and we are pleased to collaborate with du to give organisations most complete Mobile IT platform so they can use mobile to transform their businesses.
