The demand for mobile device management, including containerization and scalability, is rising as fast as consumer mobility, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is also picking up in popularity for companies of all sizes. In light of this, Tangoe (News - Alert) Expense Management, the global leader in telecom expense management solutions and services, recently revealed an enhancement in its Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution that now includes integrated mobile device containerization functionality.
Tangoe’s mobile device containerization offers a comprehensive smartphone and tablet solution addressing device usage, device and network access and data and application security.
The new integrated functionality adds increased levels of support to enterprise mobility strategies by securing and managing devices and applications entering enterprise networks as a result of BYOD adoption.
Tangoe’s mobile device containerization solution offers enterprise security and control of personal and corporate data on iOS and Android (News - Alert) mobile devices without compromising personal freedom and privacy.
Additionally, the company’s containerization solution decreases security issues in API fragmentation across mobile platforms. Furthermore, it protects corporate workspaces by placing corporate data and software in secure, FIPS-validated “containers” on network mobile devices, allowing enterprises to manage their data and software without endangering employees’ personal contacts, photos, data and applications.
“IT management is challenged to balance employee demands – which encompass BYOD access to enterprise resources via customized business applications, and real-time collaboration – while protecting corporate data, mitigating corporate mobility risks, and preventing unnecessary mobile costs,” said in a statement Al Subbloie (News - Alert), president, CEO and founder of Tangoe.
“Integrating containerization into the MDM solutions set, as well as offering it as a standalone solution, is another way we are helping enterprises create and carry out their mobility lifecycle strategies. We see this solution as having appeal not only in U.S. and Asian markets, but also in European markets where violations of data privacy rights of employees can result in significant fines. Containerization enables enterprises to effectively address employee data privacy concerns while still protecting corporate data and network security.”
