“We save time installing, configuring, and servicing employees’ mobile devices. MobileIron’s  Help@Work remote support feature makes it easy for us to provide anywhere support to smartphone users,” said Erwin Kocher, head of IT at Hilfswerk NO.

Kapsch BusinessCom, MobileIron’s partner in Austria, has implemented the MobileIron platform at Hilfswerk NO.

MobileIron earlier announced partnership with Lenovo to help enterprise customers secure and manage Windows 10, Android, and iOS devices simply and efficiently.

Using MobileIron’s EMM platform with select Lenovo PCs, customers may be able to decrease the total cost of PC ownership by up to 80 percent.

Lenovo is currently the biggest PC supplier in the world, according to the latest numbers by IDC.

Lenovo customers can purchase MobileIron’s security and management platform at the same time as Lenovo PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

This one-stop shopping also simplifies bring-your-own-device (BYOD) because applications can be securely provisioned. Lenovo, MobileIron, and its reseller partners will provide expert services to deploy across the global enterprise.

MobileIron has formed an Internet of Things (IoT) division to build an end-to-end chain of trust from sensor to app to gateway to cloud to network. Santhosh Nair, who  joined MobileIron as VP IoT to lead the division, will work with MobileIron co-founder and CTO Suresh Batchu.

MobileIron is targeting to release an IoT product for sale later this year. Bain & Company estimates that by 2020 IoT vendor revenue could exceed $470 billion.

Nearly 80 percent of companies are using more than 10 apps for business, according to the third edition of the Mobile Security and Risk Review.
