MobileIron, a provider of enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, has integrated Microsoft System Center Console Manager (SCCM) to consolidate desktop and mobile management.
The MobileIron SCCM integration will be available free of charge for MobileIron customers, the company said.
With this, MobileIron has become the first vendor to integrate Microsoft SCCM. The integration will deliver real-time connectivity between SCCM and MobileIron to streamline IT operations and give SCCM administrators a role in mobility management.
With MobileIron integration SCCM administrator can gain a complete view of devices associated with a particular user from the SCCM console. They can display and export more than 100 fields of device information from MobileIron, including device data, policies, app inventory, app settings and labels.
Further, they can take baseline security actions on devices such as lock, unlock, wipe, retire, and check-in.
IT administrators will be able to view MobileIron system data and take baseline mobile management actions directly from their SCCM console thus providing a bridge between the management of traditional PCs and next-generation mobile technologies, the company said.
“MobileIron is becoming the modern standard for security and management. Microsoft SCCM has been the legacy standard for client-based systems management,” said Ojas Rege, vice president Strategy, MobileIron.
“This integration will bridge the two systems and allow SCCM administrators to save time and streamline operations. And because of their new ability to integrate with MobileIron, they will now have a seat at the table for the mobile transformation of their organizations,” Rege added.
