  • Leading Technology

The days of locking down mobile devices are over. Leading enterprises are providing secure access to enterprise resources from their mobile devices through integration with AD, Office 365, SharePoint, Certificate services and an enterprise app store.

This is the evolution from MDM (mobile device management) to EMM (enterprise mobility management). To do this successfully, we need to secure the device, the apps, the data and the identity of the person. We do this by choosing the leading technology vendors and having the best engineering team to support your mobile environment.

Evolution from MDM to EMM

Secure Devices

We design policies and device profiles that leverage DEP (Apple’s device enrollment program) and Android Enterprise (formerly known as Android for Work).

For most clients, our recommended design integrates Mobile Device Management with Active Directory, Email, Intranet and content repositories, either on-premise or in the cloud. Once the basics are in place, we work on more advanced functionality such as certificate integration, multi-factor authentication and single sign-on.

Secure Data

HIPAA and other industry regulations can be intimidating and stifle innovation unless the appropriate controls are baked into product design from the outset.

We comply with industry regulations by designing a “tiered trust model” that applies the appropriate layers of security to protect data for sensitive use-cases in healthcare and government.

Strike the right balance between security and usability to provide an inspirational user experience. Fortunately, with biometrics and conditional access, security can be applied intelligently and discretely so the user can easily unlock their device and access their apps up to 100 times during a normal working day.

Secure Apps

The average device now has 80 – 90 apps, some enterprise apps but mainly public apps. Few people live their life in isolated containers and the reality is that the line between our work and private lives is increasingly blurred in a mobile context. It is essential that we secure both public and enterprise apps.

Enterprise Apps

We typically use AppConfig or proprietary app wrapping technology (e.g. MDX from Citrix) to apply policies and controls to enterprise apps so they can be deployed securely to approved devices. This permits granular controls like app tunnel to access corporate networks and to facilitate single sign-on.

These capabilities simplify the first-time set-up for new users and enable enterprises to provide their users with advanced apps, integrating multiple data sources and complex workflows.

Public Apps

We use technology from leading Mobile Threat Management vendors to scan public apps to detect malicious code and alert users and IT admins to privacy and security risks.

We monitor, remediate and report on the app activity each day and leverage the software to remove or replace leaky apps with alternatives to prevent security breaches.

Secure People

Extreme weather events, seismic activity and terrorism place massive pressures on businesses with a distributed workforce.

Leading Global Technology

There are over 100 vendors who claim to provide some form of mobile security. Through our partnership with Gartner, Mobile Mentor is constantly monitoring industry developments and over the past 7 years we have consistently worked with the global leaders (AirWatch, MobileIron and Citrix) to secure the mobile environment for our clients.

In mid-2017 we formed an important partnership Microsoft and we have re-tooled our engineering team to design, deploy and support EMS / Intune and Windows 10. We are very excited about working with Microsoft and supporting organisations who are rolling out Office 365 and modern management.
