MDM in Minutes: Deploy, Secure and Support Smartphones & Tablets. Every organization needs to see and control the mobile devices entering their enterprise, whether they are provided by the company or part of a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program. MaaS360 mobile device management (MDM) is the fastest, most comprehensive way to make that happen.
MobileIron Platform combines traditional mobile device management (MDM) capabilities with comprehensive security, mobile application management, and mobile content management capabilities.

2015. MobileIron introduced new Content Security Service for BYOD world
MobileIron has introduced new Content Security Service (CSS) that provides IT with a cloud security umbrella to set document protections across a variety of services, even when employees save documents to a personal account. It brings a level of control at the document level where IT administrators can set whatever document security they wish, regardless of the service, thereby separating security controls from the storage service. IT sets security levels in a control panel and decides which services to include. Out of the box (so to speak), it will support Dropbox and Box. The security works on a number of levels. First of all, it offers encryption and key management. Next, it provides basic data loss prevention (DLP) with remote wiping, document expiration, controls for saving and sharing and so forth. It also offers an audit trail for compliance purposes. Finally, it lets you share encrypted files in-house with teams and other employees.
2014. IBM and Apple partner for joint Enterprise push
30 years ago IBM and Apple dreamt to become the kings of the new personal computer market, but were overplayed by Microsoft, which monopolized the PC market for many years. Time passed, but the offense remained. And recently, IBM and Apple have decided to join forces on the Enterprise mobile market. The proof is on the photo: Ginny Rometta (IBM) and Tim Cook (Apple) are walking and discussing the details of the deal, according to which the companies will jointly optimize IBM MobileFirst, MaaS360 and other IBM business products for iPhones and iPads, and will sell them (along with Apple mobile devices) to IBM customer base. Perhaps, Microsoft is the target victim of this deal. In any case positions of Windows Phone and Surface/Windows8 in the Enterprise will be significantly weakened. But maybe, on the contrary, Microsoft overplay the competitors again. With the new boss Satya Nadella, Microsoft is less focused on their platforms and devices, and more focused - on cross-platform services. In particular MS Office 365 already works fine on iOS. At least, much better than on Android. So if the share of iOS-devices on the enterprise market grow - Microsoft will anyway earn more.
