MobileIron aids German Red Cross and Cordaan for device management

MobileIron for mobile devices MobileIron announced its latest client wins: German Red Cross of Rhineland-Palatinate and Cordaan, a healthcare provider in Amsterdam.

German Red Cross of Rhineland-Palatinate will use MobileIron’s platform to manage Windows laptops and smartphones.

The Rhineland-Palatinate chapter will use MobileIron Bridge, a solution that allows mobile devices, laptops and desktops running Windows 10 to be managed via a single central console and communication channel.

“The administrators at ITC can now remotely add apps and make changes to devices at real time. With MobileIron Core, they can also remove corporate data from devices of employees leaving the organization, or block their access,” Christian Elsner, head of the Information and Technology Center (ITC) at the Rhineland-Palatinate chapter, said.

MobileIron Bridge management console, which has already been applied to smartphones, will handle some 200 laptops.

Cordaan

Cordaan, a healthcare provider serving more than 20,000 people from 120 locations and 60 home care teams across Amsterdam, has tapped MobileIron to mobilize its workforce.

Cordaan will use MobileIron Web@Work to ensure immediate access to patient data and resources to its healthcare workers. Cordaan has also started managing its internal documents using MobileIron Docs@Work to enable smarter, faster healthcare decisions.

“We have deployed secure mobile devices and apps with MobileIron and clinicians have the most up-to-date patient information at their fingertips. This allows them to access the information and healthcare resources they need to make timely decisions that improve patient care,” said Niels van der Voort, web director at Cordaan.

Cordaan, in consultation with its technology partner Vodafone, has selected MobileIron as the enterprise mobility management (EMM) vendor to manage the organization’s devices, apps, and data. Mobile employees can access patient information, open productivity apps such as Office 365 and Sharepoint, connect to partner sites, and manage other tasks using single sign-on (SSO).

“MobileIron also enabled us to configure the portal using Active Directory, so we can assign role-based profiles to ensure employees can only access the applications they are authorized to use,” said Niels van der Voort, web director at Cordaan.

Today, Cordaan manages about 2.300 company-owned devices across its mobile workforce. The company’s entire mobile fleet now uses iOS devices provisioned through MobileIron. Cordaan is leveraging the deployment and device supervision capabilities of Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to meet security and regulatory compliance requirements for devices, apps, and data.
