MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the company that introduced the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform for the enterprise, today announced that it has joined forces with Teamwire to help organizations quickly and easily establish a foundation for secure communications. MobileIron and Teamwire have integrated their best-of-breed technologies to securely encrypt business communications with an intuitive messaging app, so employees can collaborate on any mobile device, desktop, or network without sacrificing productivity — whether their digital workplace is at home or on the frontlines of healthcare.
Many remote workers and first responders rely on unsecured personal devices and third-party chat applications to communicate with team members. Although mobile messaging apps are easily accessible and highly efficient, they often lack adequate security, especially for those working in highly regulated industries like healthcare and financial services. This means that sensitive data, such as IP and personal medical information, can be intercepted by cyberattackers looking to profit from valuable data.
“We’re excited to partner with Teamwire to help organizations deliver fast, easy and secure enterprise messaging across their entire mobile infrastructure,” said Ahmed Shah, vice president of business development at MobileIron. “Whether your employees are working from home amid the coronavirus crisis or on the frontlines of healthcare, secure and reliable communication is critical. Our joint solution helps ensure that internal messaging apps are securely deployed and managed, so your employees can improve productivity and team communication.”
With the integrated solution from MobileIron and Teamwire, organizations can deploy a powerful yet intuitive messaging app that meets internal messaging and content sharing needs and delivers enterprise-grade security. The solution will help organizations meet compliance requirements, ensure that only compliant devices can access corporate messaging, and remotely wipe apps and data if a device is ever lost or retired.
“We share MobileIron’s commitment to helping customers work more productively and securely, particularly during times of pandemics such as COVID-19,” said Tobias Stepan, CEO at Teamwire. “Our secure messaging solution can help enterprises, government and healthcare organizations simplify team collaboration, automate workflows and improve communication, all while delivering strong data protection and enterprise-grade security.”
MobileIron is redefining enterprise security with the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform built on the foundation of unified endpoint management (UEM) to secure access and protect data across the perimeter-less enterprise. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by a “never trust, always verify” approach. MobileIron goes beyond identity management and gateway approaches by utilizing a more comprehensive set of attributes before granting access. A mobile-centric, zero trust approach validates the device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user.
The MobileIron security platform is built on the foundation of award-winning and industry-leading unified endpoint management (UEM) capabilities with additional zero trust-enabling technologies, including zero sign-on (ZSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD). Over 19,000 customers, including the world’s largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies and other highly regulated companies, have chosen MobileIron to enable a seamless and secure user experience by ensuring only authorized users, devices, apps, and services can access business resources.
