Software giant IBM on Wednesday said it will soon offer MaaS360, a mobile security as a service via the IBM Cloud in India to help enterprises address local data protection standards for mobile business.

IBM MaaS360 helps enterprises simplify mobile device management by providing the tools needed to monitor and manage these devices.

“With more than five million devices under management for over 10,000 clients, MaaS360 has proven its ability to scale for clients of all sizes,” said Jim Brennan, Director of Strategy and Offering Management, Endpoint Management and Security, IBM Security, in a statement.

IBM will also offer data privacy consulting services as well as mobile strategy, design and deployment consultants as enterprises look to scale their mobile strategies globally.

Through a new integration with IBM Cloud Security Enforcer, enterprises can monitor the use of non-approved corporate apps across mobile devices, the company said.

With IBM MaaS360 currently operating in North America, Germany and Singapore, IBM will also add the service in France and eight other countries intended over the next two years, the statement added.
