MobileIron Announces Support for Oculus for Business to Secure the Modern Enterprise
MobileIron to offer robust security and management of leading all-in-one virtual reality (VR) headsets, Oculus Quest and Oculus Go
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., September 26, 2019 -- MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the company that introduced the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform for the enterprise, today announced compatibility with the upcoming release of Oculus for Business. Organizations will be able to onboard, configure and manage Oculus’ leading all-in-one virtual reality (VR) headsets, Oculus Quest and Oculus Go, as part of their established unified endpoint management (UEM) infrastructure, simplifying the entire device lifecycle – from enrollment to retirement.
Built for easy adoption and scalability across a variety of industries, the new Oculus for Business platform will transform the workplace by making large-scale deployments possible while expanding market opportunities for a growing community of VR developers. A new Device Setup app will let users set up and provision large numbers of headsets at once, and a Device Manager control center will let administrators manage headsets by updating settings and deploying apps remotely across multiple offices and locations. Oculus for Business will also support leading mobile device management (MDM) solutions, including MobileIron.
“We’re excited to work closely with Oculus ahead of their program launch and to help our customers embark on a successful and secure VR journey,” said Ahmed Shah, vice president of business development at MobileIron. “Oculus VR headsets have the potential to revolutionize business and change the way organizations communicate, learn, and collaborate across all industries. With this integration, organizations can take control of their devices with a mobile-centric, zero trust security platform that supports productivity.”
MobileIron’s unified endpoint management (UEM) platform allows for continuous enforcement and protection of data, both on the device and on the network, resulting in a secure mobile work experience and increased productivity.

MobileIron is redefining enterprise security with the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform built on the foundation of unified endpoint management (UEM) to secure access and protect data across the perimeter-less enterprise. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by a “never trust, always verify” approach. MobileIron goes beyond identity management and gateway approaches by utilizing a more comprehensive set of attributes before granting access. A mobile-centric, zero trust approach validates the device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user.
The MobileIron security platform is built on the foundation of award-winning and industry-leading unified endpoint management (UEM) capabilities with additional zero trust-enabling technologies, including zero sign-on (ZSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD). Over 19,000 customers, including the world’s largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies and other highly regulated companies, have chosen MobileIron to enable a seamless and secure user experience by ensuring only authorized users, devices, apps, and services can access business resources.
