Windows MDM in the Enterprise
Windows offers management of devices across mobile, desktop, and embedded products through a unified set of MDM APIs in Windows 10. The unified MDM APIs simplify administration while also delivering the scalability and security requirements enterprise demands.
Windows 10 introduces the technical unification of Windows Phone and Windows 8.1 for tablets and laptops. This convergence will enable applications to be developed once and optimized to run on any of these devices — from smartphones to laptops. These devices will also be able to use the same EMM protocol for security and management. By working closely with Microsoft, MobileIron will enable customers to manage any device running Windows 10 and provide secure access to productivity tools such as Microsoft Office 365 through our EMM platform.
With MobileIron and Windows Phone 8.1, enterprises can enable seamless user productivity and implement device controls that help IT minimize risks to corporate information and resources. Our EMM platform enables these devices to be quickly enrolled and provided with secure access to critical productivity tools such as Office 365 using the MobileIron app security model.
MobileIron makes it easy for enterprises to include Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 devices in their multi-OS environment. With MobileIron, users can quickly enroll their devices and connect to corporate Wi-Fi and app-triggered VPN resources without disrupting their workflow. IT can easily distribute apps to individual users and groups as well as define which apps should automatically load when a device is enrolled — all of which can be managed through the MobileIron Enterprise App store. IT can also create and modify password, compliance, and other security policies specifically for Windows 8.1 devices.
Office 365 is a powerful productivity solution that will become a core part of mobile app strategies for many organizations. IT teams need a central platform that provides a consistent security and policy framework across all mobile apps, including Microsoft Office 365. Learn More
