Secure Office 365 MDM with MobileIron

Office 365 apps are a powerful business productivity solution. Employees are increasingly using Office 365 on mobile devices instead of traditional PCs. As a result, Office 365 has become a core part of mobile app strategies and organizations are actively looking for Office 365 mobile device management (MDM) solutions.

What IT teams need is a central platform that provides a consistent security and policy framework across all mobile apps, including Microsoft Office 365. The MobileIron app security model designed to secure app distribution, protect data-at-rest and protect data-in-motion, can be applied to Office 365 mobile apps providing IT with a consistent and scalable approach to mobile app security. This is beyond the Office 365 MDM capabilities available with Office 365 subscriptions.
