MobileIron and Wandera launch tighter mobile integration against the backdrop of Mobile World Congress

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Feb 27, 2017 – MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the security backbone for the digital enterprise, and Wandera, a leader in Enterprise Mobile Security, have announced an important new update to their integrated product offering.

MobileIron customers are now able to seamlessly deploy the Wandera service across their entire fleet of devices directly from the MobileIron platform. Fleets utilizing iOS devices have the benefit of zero-touch app configuration, while fleets utilizing supervised iOS devices have the added benefit of zero-touch app installation, which bypasses the need for the user to accept the prompt to install the Wandera app.

This move offers MobileIron’s customer base streamlined access to Wandera’s Enterprise Mobile Security solution. This technology is built on Wandera’s pioneering web gateway for mobile, providing enterprises with Mobile Threat Defense (MTD) capabilities that span all four areas of protection as identified in the Gartner Market Guide for Mobile Threat Defense Solutions. This protection is extended by powerful Content Filtering features, allowing organizations to manage unapproved device usage and reduce data exposures on a proactive basis.

“We’ve worked closely with Wandera to give our mutual customers a better way to integrate and deliver threat prevention services” said Ojas Rege, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer, MobileIron. “This richer integration builds upon an already strong partnership and delivers on our goal to simplify the mobile security lifecycle for our users.”

This new integration builds upon the deep partnership between MobileIron and Wandera that already facilitated simplified deployment of Wandera’s service via the App Push functionality. With the enablement of over-the-air deployment, this feature has been improved significantly, with no input from the end-user required whatsoever and no interruption to the user’s experience of the device.

“This integration with MobileIron delivers on our promise of a seamless and significantly faster deployment of Wandera to our customers” said Michael Covington, VP Product Strategy at Wandera. “It allows them to gain increased security, visibility and control over their entire fleet in seconds, along with significantly reducing overhead costs.”

The integration will soon be made available to customers of both services. To find out more, get in contact with your Wandera or MobileIron account manager, or request a demonstration at wandera.com/demo.
