As with past releases of both MobileIron Core and MobileIron Cloud (our subscription-based UEM offering), I’d like to share with you some of the top highlights of this new release. We continue to improve upon MobileIron’s comprehensive security platform and strive to introduce new use cases that enable our customers to: 1) streamline and automate the process of bringing user profiles to life, 2) ensure that employees’ business mobile experience mimics their personal mobile experience, and 3) protect the data.That said, let’s take a look at what’s new in Core 10.1.</p> <h2 class="oxygen">Android advanced passcode</h2> <p>The number one challenge for any organization that enables mobile devices to access corporate data is that of keeping those devices secure. One of the most fundamental steps to take is to enforce device screen lock, most commonly via passcode. However, as mobile devices and operating systems evolve, time-saving alternatives to traditional passcodes are becoming more popular among users. Google’s Android platform now offers Smart Lock, which provides multiple options to users such as Bluetooth, location, iris, and face unlock, as well as voice match. Prior to MobileIron Core 10.1, we provided an “all or nothing” approach to Smart Lock. If an admin wanted to allow users time-saving alternatives to traditional passcodes by enabling Smart Lock, they were unable to apply more granular rules based on their level of comfort with more modern technologies. With Core 10.1, admins can be more selective in terms of the screen lock technologies to be made available to their users.</p> <h2 class="oxygen">SAFETYNET Attestation</h2> <p>SAFETYNET Attestation is another Android feature that’s now supported in Core 10.1.  SAFETYNET Attestation provides greater visibility into Android devices as part of a “defense in-depth” strategy. MobileIron customers can more easily assess the security and compatibility of the Android environments in which their apps run. Why is this important? Because now they can easily identify devices running unapproved Android OS builds, such as devices running custom read-only memory (ROM) or rooted devices.  The result is improved data security, thanks to better Android device visibility. SAFETYNET Attestation works with any Android deployment: work profile, managed device, managed device with work profile, and device admin modes. It’s also important to note that SAFETYNET Attestation works together with <a href="https://www.mobileiron.com/en/endpoint-security/threat-defense">MobileIron Threat Defense</a>, which delivers unparalleled mobile threat detection and remediation, on-device, with no user action required.</p> <h2 class="oxygen">Display custom terms of service</h2> <p>Next up, Core 10.1 can now display terms of service (TOS) when a user logs into an AppConnect enabled app. AppConnect is the critical part of our comprehensive security platform that enables protection of data at rest (on-device), without touching the user’s personal data. The user will not be granted access to AppConnect and its data until the TOS have been accepted. In addition, user permission will be logged for audit purposes. The key benefit here is that Core 10.1 now does even more to enable our customers in highly-regulated industries to maintain compliance.  </p> <h2 class="oxygen">Admin-defined app dependencies</h2> <p>Now let’s talk about app dependencies. In Core 10.1, administrators have the ability to define app relationships. The admin defines if prerequisite apps are required for another app to function correctly, and bundles the apps together for app download or install. The Apps@work catalog informs the end user if an app has prerequisites and installs it in one click.This helps to drive down support costs by reducing the number of help desk tickets driven by challenges associated with app installs. Another direct benefit of admin-defined app dependencies is improved user experience, which helps to drive strategic app adoption and user productivity.</p> <h2 class="oxygen">App Insights</h2> <p>Apps are at the heart of user productivity. For this reason, organizations continue to make significant investments in new ones—whether off-the-shelf or custom in-house apps—as a part of their comprehensive growth strategy. We’re pleased to introduce our new App Insights dashboard, which helps our customers measure the effectiveness of their app strategy. App Insights provides clear visibility into app metrics including apps by distribution, top-installed apps, and top-rated apps. MobileIron Core now provides a level of actionable insights that can help you justify the costs associated with app procurement and development, as well as ensure that app-driven compliance metrics are being met. Use App Insights to verify that the correct app versions have been installed (super-important in terms of minimizing risks of vulnerabilities introduced by apps), validate which apps that are not installed (but should be or are eligible to be installed), and compare app installations across platforms and versions. Good stuff!</p> <p>I hope that you found this information useful.  Stay tuned for additional updates down the road!</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Read More Link</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/blog/Whats-New-MobileIron-Core-10-1">Read the full article</a></div> </div> Mon, 15 Oct 2018 22:09:07 +0000 sraikow 1871 at https://www.mobileiron.com In pursuit of the wily and elusive Single Pane of Glass https://www.mobileiron.com/en/blog/In-pursuit-of-the-wily-and-elusive-Single-Pane-of-Glass <span>In pursuit of the wily and elusive Single Pane of Glass</span> <span><span lang="" about="/en/user/43" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">sraikow</span></span> <span>Thu, 10/11/2018 - 13:54</span> <div class="rrssb"> <ul class="rrssb-buttons demo"> <li class="rrssb-facebook social-icon-1"> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mobileiron.com%2Fen%2Fblog%2FIn-pursuit-of-the-wily-and-elusive-Single-Pane-of-Glass" class="popup"> </a> </li> <li class="rrssb-linkedin social-icon-2"> <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mobileiron.com%2Fen%2Fblog%2FIn-pursuit-of-the-wily-and-elusive-Single-Pane-of-Glass&amp;title=In%20pursuit%20of%20the%20wily%20and%20elusive%20Single%20Pane%20of%20Glass" class="popup"> </a> </li> <li class="rrssb-twitter social-icon-3"> <a href="https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=In%20pursuit%20of%20the%20wily%20and%20elusive%20Single%20Pane%20of%20Glass&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mobileiron.com%2Fen%2Fblog%2FIn-pursuit-of-the-wily-and-elusive-Single-Pane-of-Glass" class="popup"> </a> </li> </ul> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-article-main-content field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div class="eck-entity"> <div class="field field--name-field-header-blog-image field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--item"><figure><article class="media media-image view-mode-default"> <div class="field field--name-field-m field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/Blog/2018/October/single-plane-glass/blog-inline-image.jpg" width="656" height="290" alt="In pursuit of the wily and elusive Single Pane of Glass" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> </article> </figure></div> </div> </div> <div class="field--item"><div class="eck-entity"> <div class="field field--name-field-regular-paragraph field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>The “single pane of glass” for endpoint management is something IT professionals have sought since time immemorial. Unfortunately, such a tool is akin to Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, the Great Pumpkin, or the Yeti: sightings are sometimes reported but difficult to confirm and — in those rare cases where proof does seem to exist—something about the source is questionable or unreliable. Meanwhile, new and different operating systems like Android, iOS, Linux, and macOS are breaking the Windows endpoint monoculture in many organizations, resulting in an increasingly fragmented management tool ecosystem and pushing the “single pane of glass” farther out of reach. Simultaneously, the tighter budgets and leaner staffing typical of most IT departments makes simplified tooling even more desirable.</p> <p>There are plenty of mature tools available for endpoint security and management, but using them in a cohesive and consistent way has been a challenge, which is why we’re so excited about the integration of MobileIron Core and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). This first-of-its-kind integration enables endpoint admins and security operations teams to get a holistic view of their entire estate—from servers to smartphones—and strengthen their prevention, detection, and response capabilities.</p> <h2 class="oxygen"><strong>A view through the single pane:<br /> MobileIron and McAfee ePO</strong></h2> <p>Despite the fractious nature of the modern heterogenous endpoint landscape, security depends on uniformity. Policies must be consistently applied and monitored regardless of the underlying differences in the operating systems those devices run. The integration between MobileIron Core and McAfee ePO moves critical information about Android and iOS devices, which is usually available only to EMM/ UEM platforms, out of its silo and into an industry-leading management and orchestration console.</p> <p>This data transfer creates a new level of consistency in the endpoint monitoring process by abstracting away the differences between endpoint OSes, breaking down the barriers between management systems, and centralizing both policy definition and monitoring. This enables endpoint admins and security operations teams to perform more efficiently by reducing the number of consoles they have to interact with to perform their duties. The benefits go beyond ePO as well. Because the integration also supports Data eXchange Layer (DXL), security events for mobile devices can published on the DXL fabric and consumed by a wide array of security partners, enabling an even broader set of automation and orchestration use cases. This breadth helps resolve the tension between integrated and best-of-breed security solutions by offering familiar and standardized interfaces that simplify day-to-day tasks, while enabling better information sharing and automation.</p> <h2 class="oxygen"><strong>Conclusion</strong></h2> <p>While a true “single pane of glass” may prove to be a mythical creature that we will never be able to capture, reducing the number of consoles by integrating best-of-breed solutions in a manner that improves visibility and reduces complexity for operations teams is definitely the next best thing.</p> <p>For more information on the integration of MobileIron Core and McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), check out the <a href="http://marketplace.mobileiron.com/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=00P34000019NcbjEAC">configuration guide</a> or contact your MobileIron representative, and don’t forget to visit us during <a href="https://mcafeempower.com/">McAfee MPOWER</a> (Booth #406), Oct 15th - 18th, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-link field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Read More Link</div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/en/blog/In-pursuit-of-the-wily-and-elusive-Single-Pane-of-Glass">Read the full article</a></div> </div> Thu, 11 Oct 2018 20:54:10 +0000 sraikow 1863 at https://www.mobileiron.com What’s New with MobileIron EMM: Top Highlights of Core 9.6 https://www.mobileiron.com/en/blog/whats-new-mobileiron-emm-top-highlights-core-96 <span>What’s New with MobileIron EMM: Top Highlights of Core 9.6</span> <span><span lang="" about="/en/user/17" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">kdonahoe</span></span> <span>Tue, 11/21/2017 - 12:41</span> <div class="rrssb"> <ul class="rrssb-buttons demo"> <li class="rrssb-facebook social-icon-1"> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/sharer/sharer.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mobileiron.com%2Fen%2Fblog%2Fwhats-new-mobileiron-emm-top-highlights-core-96" class="popup"> </a> </li> <li class="rrssb-linkedin social-icon-2"> <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mobileiron.com%2Fen%2Fblog%2Fwhats-new-mobileiron-emm-top-highlights-core-96&amp;title=What%E2%80%99s%20New%20with%20MobileIron%20EMM%3A%20Top%20Highlights%20of%20Core%209.6" class="popup"> </a> </li> <li class="rrssb-twitter social-icon-3"> <a href="https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=What%E2%80%99s%20New%20with%20MobileIron%20EMM%3A%20Top%20Highlights%20of%20Core%209.6&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mobileiron.com%2Fen%2Fblog%2Fwhats-new-mobileiron-emm-top-highlights-core-96" class="popup"> </a> </li> </ul> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-article-main-content field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div class="eck-entity"> <div class="field field--name-field-header-blog-image field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--item"><figure><article class="media media-image view-mode-default"> <div class="field field--name-field-m field--type-image field--label-hidden field--item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2017-11/core-9.6.jpg" width="656" height="290" alt="What’s New with MobileIron EMM: Top Highlights of Core 9.6" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /> </div> </article> </figure></div> </div> </div> <div class="field--item"><div class="eck-entity"> <div class="field field--name-field-regular-paragraph field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>We are excited to bring you another new release of <a href="https://www.mobileiron.com/en/solutions/enterprise-mobile-management-emm">MobileIron enterprise mobility management (EMM)</a>, MobileIron Core 9.6, which includes more than 30 new features focused on enhancing security, improving usability, and further strengthening our multi-OS support. Let’s take a look at several highlights of this release!</p> <h2>Office 365 App Protection</h2> <p>Thanks to MobileIron Core 9.6 compatibility with Microsoft Graph APIs, admins now have the ability to segregate Office 365 apps and data from personal apps and data on users’ mobile devices. This level of data loss prevention (DLP) is especially critical in financial services, healthcare, government, and other highly-regulated industries. MobileIron Core 9.6 provides access to the following Office 365 App Protection settings for Android and iOS devices:</p> <ul><li>Restrict Cloud backup — Enable/Disable backup of information from the app to the Cloud</li> <li>Cut/Copy/Paste restriction — Enable/Disable copy/paste operations between policy-managed apps and other apps</li> <li>Disable “Save As” — Enable/Disable the use of “Save As” in any app that uses policy. Select services data can be saved to: OneDrive, SharePoint, and Local</li> <li>Restrict Data Transfer To/From Managed Apps —Allow/Disallow app to send/receive data to/from other apps</li> <li>Encrypt app data — Enable encryption of app data</li> <li>Restrict web content to Managed Browser —Any links in the app will be opened in Managed Browser if enabled</li> <li>Disable Printing — If enabled, app cannot print protected data</li> <li>Disable Contacts Sync —Enable/Disable saving of contacts from app to native address book</li> <li>Disable Screen Capture — Block screen capture (Android only) and Android Assistant app scanning</li> <li>Block Access on Jailbroken/Rooted Devices — Block apps from running on jailbroken or rooted devices</li> <li>Wipe after Extended Offline — Wipe corporate data when a device is offline for a specified duration</li> <li>PIN/Fingerprint for Login — Enable/Disable PIN for login to Office 365 apps</li> </ul><h2>Additional macOS capabilities</h2> <p>MobileIron continues to expand upon our EMM capabilities for Mac desktops. Prior to this release, MobileIron Core admins were able to install only those apps made available via the Apple Mac App Store. However, with new Core 9.6, admins now have the added convenience of installing custom, in-house apps as well. In addition, several new restrictions have been added to provide admins with more granular controls for software downloads that occur via the Apple Mac App Store. Also important to mention is that additional features are now available to improve data loss prevention (DLP) for Macs. Admins can now implement disc burning restrictions to enable or disable disc burning. Plus, allowed media control helps to prevent data loss by enabling granular control of media disc operation, as well as controlling new restrictions introduced in macOS 10.13. And finally, Core 9.6 enables admins to create policies in Spaces for delegated admins in those spaces, these include macOS policies.</p> <h2>Google Play Alpha/Beta</h2> <p>Developers now have the ability to distribute early app releases using Google Play alpha/beta channels. This level of flexibility means that admins can now limit new software releases to a subset of users (i.e., early testing purposes), as opposed to pushing the release to the entire user base. Admins can easily enroll selected users for pre-release apps, and with no user interaction required. Another advantage of Google Play Alpha/Beta is that Developers are no longer forced to publish beta apps separately. In addition, developers can now take advantage of Google Play publishing tools for in-house apps.</p> <h2>Support for Samsung Enterprise Firmware Over-the-Air (E-FOTA)</h2> <p>Using Samsung E-FOTA, admins now have the ability to manage and push selected versions of device firmware to users with supported Samsung devices. There are many benefits to E-FOTA. For example, thanks to more control over device configuration, admins can minimize unplanned changes to device environments. Strict firmware policies for Samsung devices can now be enforced by model and groups. Admins can specify target firmware for bot user-selected and forced updates. In addition, admins can now manage policies by employee groups, which allows for more granular control over which firmware to update, and when.</p> <h2>Work Schedule policy facilitates ”Right to Disconnect” legislation</h2> <p>Earlier this year, <a href="http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/02/technology/france-office-email-workers-law/index.html">“Right to Disconnect” legislation</a> was introduced in France. Now, at the conclusion of the work day, employees have the right to ignore work-related emails until the following day. MobileIron Core 9.6 enables admins to create policies that define work schedule and enable blocking of Exchange ActiveSync, AppConnect-enabled apps, and managed apps that use MobileIron Tunnel during non-work times. The goal here is to ensure that employees maintain a healthy work/life balance. MobileIron is excited to support this effort!</p> <h2>SAML 2.0 and support for ADFS IdP on Admin portal and self-service user portal</h2> <p>MobileIron Core 9.6 enables admins to use the Core GUI to persistently configure and enable user authentication using SAML 2.0 and Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) Server 3.0. Users who access the MobileIron Core admin portal and self-service user portal can be authenticated via an external identity provider (IdP) with Single Sign-On (SSO). Enabling ADFS on the self-service user portal reduces the potential for denial-of-service (DoS) attacks on corporate LDAP servers.</p> <h2>Machine learning-based MobileIron threat defense and remediation</h2> <p>MobileIron Core 9.6 provides a new user interface drop-down option that enables admins to distribute a MobileIron threat defense activation code via Android XML Configuration to Android devices that have the appropriate Mobile@Work client installed on them. Activation code for MobileIron threat defense on iOS devices that have the appropriate Mobile@Work client installed on them is distributed via existing plist mechanism.</p> <p>There you have it, some of the top highlights of new MobileIron Core 9.6.

Let’s take a look at some of the top highlights!</p> <h2>Easier Windows 10 Desktop Security and Management with a New Intuitive UI</h2> <p>MobileIron Core 9.4 now features a more intuitive UI to enable easier management of Windows 10 desktops when leveraging MobileIron Bridge. For example, adding Bitlocker with MobileIron Bridge for Windows 10 desktop enables admins to encrypt and recover data from devices using the recovery options provided in MobileIron Core. Also, using MobileIron Bridge, admins can now remove bloatware that comes on Windows 10 desktops, directly from the OS. So, rather than having to re-image a tablet with a more scaled down list of applications, MobileIron Core 9.4 and MobileIron Bridge can help remove those applications at device enrollment. Other notable benefits offered by the new intuitive UI are the ability to add network or shared printers, enable admins to manage Group Policy Objects (GPOs) settings with MobileIron Bridge so that they can easily search through and select needed settings from more than 4,000 GPOs that exist in a desktop’s registry. Application dependencies (extra programs or libraries required for an application to run) for Windows 10 devices can now be managed by MobileIron Core 9.4, and identified during upload. Plus, MobileIron Core improves the user experience by allowing customization of the Customer Terms of Use (TOU) page to be presented to users of new Azure Active Directory (AAD) registrations.</p> <h2>New Delegated Administration Capabilities</h2> <p>MobileIron Core 9.4 offers many improvements that allow admins to conduct more granular and scalable management. One example can be found in Delegated Administration. New space editing and configuration options allow admins the convenience of modifying both the space name, and space criteria at will; rather than having to create a new space in order to make changes. IT admins gain greater autonomy and control over their space, now having the ability to manage four new configurations within their space -i.e.VPN, Wi-FI, Exchange and Email configs. Global admins now have the ability to limit access to Core in a more granular way. If a global admin chooses to restrict an admin from viewing the Core dashboard, they can now do so while still providing access to device and user information. Additionally, if a global admin wants to give another admin access to config management but doesn’t want them to be able to delete any configs, that is now achievable as well. Also important to note is that users can now be granted the convenience of indicating device ownership (corporate-owned or employee-owned) during registration of the device, rather than automatically having ownership assigned based on the default setting in MobileIron Core.</p> <h2>iOS 9.3 Education and iOS 10.3 Support</h2> <p>MobileIron Core 9.4 supports key Apple Education use cases introduced in iOS 9.3. The iPads used in education can be now configured properly with the correct Education payload, and by integrating with Apple School Manager (ASM), class rosters can be pushed to the devices. As a result, the Classroom app enables both teachers and students to benefit from an enhanced workflow and a better classroom experience. Also available with MobileIron Core 9.4 is support for many of the great new enterprise features that Apple introduced in iOS 10.3. Among these supported features are a new Wi-Fi restriction for supervised devices which allows an administrator to create a restriction to only allow connections to Wi-Fi networks configured that were created by the mobile admin. Support for more granular S/MIME options in iOS 10.3 enables encryption and signing of email messages for purposes of improved usability and enhanced security. Admins are now able to control OS updates for for Supervised devices regardless if they are DEP enrolled or not, such as iReg. All supervised devices are up-to-date with the latest version of iOS. Admins can now simplify and speed DEP enrollment by enabling users to skip several Setup Assistant screens during DEP registration, including: Display Tone, iCloud and Home Button. The ability to specify IPv4 or IPv6 or both transport for voice and/or data traffic ensures that organizations with mandates to provide iPv6 transport are able to extend compliance to mobile OS devices. In addition, MobileIron Core 9.4 supports variables when configuring Lock Screen Message Policy.</p> <h2>Android enterprise Support</h2> <p>MobileIron Core 9.4 includes support for Android enterprise (formerly Android for Work), resulting in improved security for work apps, a better native app store experience, and enhanced single use device support. By taking advantage of Android enterprise Work Challenge, admins can protect enterprise content on a device using a separate passcode. By leveraging this new capability, admins can now secure work apps and data with a higher security password profile that doesn’t impair the user’s access to the device. Admins can also deliver enterprise apps via Google Play, which allows users to view Android enterprise apps in the work profile or in device owner mode. Using Google Play, users can now access apps via the native app store and benefit from a native experience, because they no longer have to use MobileIron Apps@Work to get to their apps. Finally, MobileIron Core 9.4 support for the Kiosk mode for Android enterprise “device owner” mode allows admins to secure “single use” devices in a locked down environment with only permitted apps being made available.</p> <h2>Graduated Compliance Actions</h2> <p>MobileIron Core 9.4 enables admins to create named Compliance Actions with multiple sequential actions that will be performed when devices are determined to be out-of-compliance with Compliance or Security Policy. Sequential actions can be defined for up to four Tiers and includes the ability to insert a configurable Wait interval of hours or days in between each sequential action in Tiers 2 - 4. This feature enables administrators to create graduated compliance actions and establish time limits before taking increasingly restrictive actions.</p> <p>With these and other new capabilities in MobileIron Core 9.4, leading organizations can continue to accelerate on their mobile journey for business transformation and productivity.</p> <h2>Learn more:</h2> <p>Gartner 2017 Report: Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Mobility Management Suites<br /><a href="https://www.mobileiron.com/en/resources">https://www.mobileiron.com/en/resources</a></p> <p>MobileIron Product Overview<br /><a href="https://www.mobileiron.com/en/products">https://www.mobileiron.com/en/products</a></p> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 14 Jun 2017 21:51:41 +0000 kdonahoe 377 at https://www.mobileiron.com
