A key component to the MobileIron Platform is MobileIron Core, which integrates with backend enterprise IT systems and enables IT to define security and management policies for mobile apps, content and devices. Core can be extended through our APIs to integrate with the offerings of our Technology Alliance Partners.
Core enables the following areas of functionality:
Our MDM capabilities enable IT to securely manage mobile devices across mobile operating systems and provide secure corporate email, automatic device configuration, certificate-based security, and selective wiping of enterprise data from both corporate-owned as well as user-owned devices.
Our MAM functionality helps IT manage the entire application lifecycle, from making the applications available in the enterprise app storefront, securing applications on the device, enforcing user authentication, isolating them from personal apps, and retiring them as necessary.
Our MCM functionality enables IT to provide mobile access to enterprise documents residing in SharePoint, file shares, and other content management systems so users can access them securely from any device. It also secures email attachments so that they are encrypted and can only be viewed with the Docs@Work or other enterprise application managed by MobileIron.
Data Reporting, Analytics, and Insight
Enterprise mobile computing is a mission critical and integral component of the IT infrastructure. Administrators need real time operational intelligence solutions to manage and maintain the posture, usage of mobile devices and applications globally. MobileIron Core collects over 200 fields of data with device, application, user metrics, and status which administrators can use to analyze, visualize, and get actionable insights into their mobile infrastructure.
Splunk Forwarder & Splunk App for MobileIron:
Administrators can correlate mobile & network machine generated data in order to diagnose infrastructure problems.
MobileIron Reporting Database:
Administrators can include mobile device data in third party reporting solutions like Tableau, Crystal Reports, and QlikView.
Gives administrators a fast and simple way to export ad hoc reports into Excel for easy filtering, formatting, and analysis.
New dashboard widgets deliver a better way to pull information from the MobileIron Reporting Database.
Secure Spaces with Flexible Delegation
MobileIron Core allows IT to establish data and task boundaries to protect user privacy and provide flexible delegation of IT responsibilities. Secure spaces with delegated administration and role based access enables the global IT lead to provide local IT or helpdesk admins with access to key systems based on their role within the organization and even distribute apps within certain spaces. Global IT teams can also determine which devices local IT or helpdesk admins can see and what they can do on those devices. This enables global organizations to gain flexibility and create secure spaces for various functions within which they can complete key actions, while ensuring user privacy.
On-the-go Management with Insight
MobileIron Insight is a native mobile app, designed to help IT Admins take a Mobile First approach towards managing their mobile deployments. With Insight, the industry-leading MobileIron EMM admin portal goes mobile, enabling IT administrators to easily view, monitor, and manage mobile devices at any time, no matter where they are. A great administration and help desk tool, Insight allows admins to do key things like view the status of mobile deployments across their company, search for users and devices, drill down on specific device info, and troubleshoot issues and manage devices, all without being tied to a desktop or laptop. This app is available on both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, in 15 languages.
Management and Reporting Console (Atlas)
MobileIron Atlas is an advanced management and reporting console that is delivered alongside MobileIron Core. Atlas provides scalable administration, reporting, monitoring, and troubleshooting. It offers reporting with visibility into app and device inventory and policy compliance and includes systems that monitor MobileIron Core server health.
Secure Mobile Access to Google Apps
Enterprises are increasingly migrating from on premise to cloud-based solutions for mission-critical business productivity apps. In keeping with this trend, many enterprises are interested in migrating from their existing PIM solutions to Google Apps. However for many security conscious enterprises, delivering Active Directory credentials to the Google cloud prevents them from moving forward on their cloud-related migration plans, leaving them unable to take advantage of the many benefits of a cloud-based offering. In the Fall release this issue is resolved by creating and managing Google Apps passwords on MobileIron Core enabling enterprises to go live with Google’s PIM products on mobile using ActiveSync. This frees up enterprises who desire the benefits of cloud-based apps such as ease of deployment and a simpler subscription model without sacrificing security. Currently, password management for Google Apps is supported on iOS and Android.
Integration with Microsoft SCCM Delivers Enhanced Visibility
MobileIron now offers real time connectivity between Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and MobileIron Core, offering enterprise IT a quick and easy way to view status of mobile devices directly from the SCCM console. This provides enhanced visibility into mobile deployments which results in greater IT efficiency. With this integration, there is no need to do a constant refresh of the entire device catalog and SCCM can do a real-time query to the MobileIron Core to get a snapshot of mobile device status. IT admins can now take certain actions on mobile devices directly from the SCCM console such as locking, unlocking, wiping, and retiring a device as well as enabling a forced check-in as needed.
