Manufacturing and Automotive

The enterprise mobility management (EMM) priorities for automotive and manufacturing companies include BYOD programs, multi-OS support, and app distribution and management. Automotive companies in particular are improving the customer buying experience through mobile apps that allow a customer to browse, customize, and accept delivery of a vehicle with a seamless, high-tech experience.

Making the automotive industry Mobile First



J.B. Hunt uses the MobileIron Platform to stay informed of emerging security threats. If an employee device is lost or stolen, J.B. Hunt’s security department can use MobileIron to track the device, increasing the chances of a successful recovery. When an employee leaves the company, J.B. Hunt can remotely wipe corporate data while leaving the employee’s personal data and photos intact. And if an employee attempts to jailbreak a device, J.B. Hunt can take immediate action.

Key Features for Manufacturing and Automotive:

Mobile Device Management - MDM

  • Our platform enables BYOD Programs as customers can selectively wipe business data on an end-user’s device, including business email, apps, content, settings, and certificates, without wiping personal content contained on the device.
  • Specific policies can be set by broad or granular groups to enable location, store or user specific policies. These groups could be already established in the corporate directory or newly established for the mobile deployment.
  • Multi-OS support for mobile operating systems including iOS, Android and Windows Phone as well as next-generation laptop operating systems such as Windows 8.1 and OS X.
  • Certificate-based authentication preserves device and user identity and improves the user experience by not requiring ongoing username/password logins.
