ADK Arts Chooses MobileIron Access for Secure Access to Cloud Services

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--()--MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the secure foundation for modern work, today announced that ADK Arts, a subsidiary of a major Japanese advertisement agency, ASATSU-DK INC has chosen MobileIron Access to provide secure access to cloud services. ADK Arts had been using MobileIron to secure and manage its company-owned iPhones and corporate email since 2012. However, with increasing workload and the need to access new applications, it was imperative for the company to use a best-in-class solution like MobileIron Access to share data and files easily and securely with its clients and partners via the cloud.

Secure access to cloud services

Founded in 2003, ADK Arts offers comprehensive advertisement production services, including creating TV commercials, videos, graphics, and marketing promotions. As ADK Arts has grown through the years, it has become increasingly critical for its employees and its partners to collaborate and share assets securely and seamlessly via the cloud.

“We started considering MobileIron Access when we were upgrading our devices to iPhone 8 as well as introducing Workplace by Facebook,” said Akihiko Ooumi, general manager of IT and System Solution Department at ADK Arts. “After evaluating several solutions, MobileIron Access rose to the top of our list as the best solution for customized access to cloud services, including Salesforce, Adobe Creative Cloud, G Suite, and Box. MobileIron unified endpoint management (UEM) has helped automate our device enrollment, while MobileIron Access provides our employees secure and simple passwordless single sign-on (SSO) to our cloud services.”

Operational efficiencies made possible

Deploying MobileIron Access has resulted in increased productivity for ADK Arts’ IT team. Back in 2010, a large portion of IT workload was system management and operations. Today, following a full deployment of MobileIron UEM and Access, much of this IT work has been streamlined or eliminated, freeing up the IT team to focus on other critical functions such as new app development and new service implementations. Inquiries to ADK Arts’ support team have decreased substantially in the last five years. Today, the company’s IT team spends nearly 50% of its time working on new projects.

“We’re thrilled to help ADK Arts’ IT team become more productive and securely use cloud services,” said Vijay Pawar, VP of product management at MobileIron. “Our goal is to provide a seamless security experience for our customers, designed for today’s modern work environment. We take care of their security needs, so they can focus on their business needs.”
