MobileIron Cloud Update
Matthew Law | April 22, 2017
The latest releases of MobileIron Cloud enhance security, strengthen multi-OS support, and improve user experience. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.
More Robust Management and Security for Macs
MobileIron Cloud now offers comprehensive support for macOS. Many notable enhancements can be found in the areas of deployment and enrollment, configurations and actions, policies and compliance, and software distribution and management.
Support for Key Apple iOS 10.3 Enterprise Features
MobileIron Cloud supports many of the new enterprise features introduced in new Apple iOS 10.3. Wi-Fi restrictions, S/MIME enhancements and restart and shutdown of supervised iOS or tvOS devices — just to name a few.
Extend EMM Capabilities to PCs
MobileIron Cloud now supports MobileIron Bridge. IT admins can leverage a single console and communications channel to manage both mobile and PC operations for Windows 10. Benefits include increased organizational productivity, efficiency and agility — at lower cost, and without compromising mobile security.
Deeper Integration with Windows 10 Security Features
Support for Windows Information Protection (WIP) enables IT admins to define and enforce policies to protect enterprise data and control access to corporate resources via Windows 10 devices. MobileIron Cloud enables admins to easily distinguish between personal and business information, define which apps and users have access to the information, and control what users can do with the information — for example, this might include copy/paste or print.
Enhancements to AppConnect for Android
Containerization, security, and admin access to information are all improved thanks to new MobileIron Cloud enhancements to AppConnect for Android. IT admins can now reset the AppConnect Passcode, unlock the AppConnect for Android container, display a list of installed AppConnect enabled apps, and easily view encryption status and configuration installation status for apps.
Tiered Compliance Policies and Actions
IT admins now have more granular control over compliance policies and actions. They can create policies with complex triggers and chained compliance actions which allow for tiered enforcement in a variety of scenarios. For example, IT admins can now build chained actions with wait states, user notifications, and compliance actions, including block and quarantine devices.
Custom Query Reporting
MobileIron Cloud now enables IT admins to create reports that best meet their needs. They can modify report templates to include or exclude specific columns, ensuring only the information of interest is displayed, and in the preferred order. This helps to improve communication and speed decision making.
Secure Multi-User Login on iOS Devices
Use of iOS Web clips allows multiple users sign-in and sign-out from the same device. The user’s profile, applications, and configurations get copied onto the device when they log in and will be removed as soon as they logout. MobileIron Cloud support for iOS Web clips enables fast switching between multiple users of a single iOS device, while also ensuring privacy/security of each user’s profile.
There you have it, highlights of MobileIron Cloud’s most recent releases. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more updates down the road!
