Simplify deployment, improve productivity, and increase security with MobileIron’s Slack integration

As mobile devices become the defacto standard for employee productivity it is easy to get tunnel vision around securing the mobile devices and miss opportunities to improve efficiency and communication. Sometimes we need to take a step back from our email and employee request system and ask, “what is the next exciting project I am going to work on that drives a positive impact on my company?”

Let me give you an idea to spur your inspiration. MobileIron is excited to offer an integration with Slack, compatible with their new version of the Slack Enterprise Grid mobile app that supports improved deployment and security using AppConfig standards. AppConfig is the industry wide standard to support deployment and security of enterprise mobile applications.

Key facts you need to know:

  1. Supports AppConfig - Slack’s new app supports EMM configuration, improving deployment and security. Since Slack is using AppConfig standards, you can trust that it will work across multiple device versions.
  2. Simple to deploy - Improving deployment and first-use experience are essential to locking in success of the project. The process to import and configure will have you up and testing within minutes. When you report back on adoption numbers, you can be assured that you presented end users with the best experience.

  3. Secure communication throughout your enterprise - Slack is SOC 2 Type I & II, SOC 3, and HIPAA compliant as well as enforcing other security standards for their service. When combined with MobileIron security your deployment sits on a top tier of security infrastructure, protecting your corporate information.

Your employees are spending more time on their mobile devices and your ability to support their need for user-friendly and secure communication is foundational to your company's success. The new version of Slack’s Enterprise Grid mobile application enables you to deploy quickly and securely giving you and your company a quick win for productivity.
