MobileIron Client - MDM Application for Enterprise Environments
A key component to the MobileIron platform is the MobileIron Client, called Mobile@Work. End users download the app and it automatically configures the device to function in an enterprise environment by enforcing the configuration and security policies set by the IT department. The secure MobileIron container protects enterprise data and applications.
The MobileIron Client works with MobileIron Core to configure corporate email, Wi-Fi, VPN, and security certificates and to create a clear separation between personal and business information. This allows IT to selectively wipe only the corporate data on the device if the user leaves the company or if the device falls out of compliance or is lost.
The MobileIron Client works with MobileIron Core to install the enterprise app storefront so that users can browse and install the mobile applications made available to them by their enterprise. Also, depending on the users role in the organization, the Client automatically installs the mobile applications that have been assigned to that user. Enterprise data can only be exchanged between applications that are part of the secure MobileIron container.
The MobileIron Client allows users access to web resources and content repositories that sit behind the firewall such as SharePoint. It also provides them with a secure reader that has the key to decrypt encrypted email attachments so that corporate data cannot leave the device or be leaked into personal email and attachments.
