UK telecom operator EE on Tuesday announced its plans to launch MobileIron Cloud, a multi-operating system enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform for small to medium businesses.
With this, EE becomes the first UK telecom operator to provide business-grade security across all mobile operating systems in its corporate plans as standard. In addition, EE is also the first operator worldwide to offer MobileIron Cloud as a MobileIron-hosted service.
The new platform enables businesses to configure and selectively manage mobile apps, content and devices, automatically enforce usage policies, and retire mobile devices when they are lost or when an employee leaves the company.
Gerry McQuade, chief marketing officer for Business at EE, said: “MobileIron Cloud is an important step in removing the complexity associated with securing business data across multiple device types and operating systems.”
MobileIron Cloud’ content catalogue allows employees to choose the files they want, then updates those files automatically when new versions become available. Administrators can distribute content to different user groups and devices, and assign content to different categories.
Users can select mobile apps from MobileIron Cloud’s app catalogue for tasks such as expense reporting, travel booking, collaborative working and customer relationship management. These can be either commercially available apps or custom-made apps developed by the business.
