Orange Business Services today said it’s securing the enterprise mobility of Belgium Federal Public Service of Foreign Affairs to support Belgian citizens through 132 embassies worldwide.
The IT deal with Orange Business Services will enable 3,000 employees of the Belgium Federal Public Service of Foreign Affairs to drive the increasing use of mobile devices and access government resources, while securing information.
Orange Business Services will secure mobile devices with its Mobile Device Management solution, based on the MobileIron platform.
Orange Mobile Device Management — managed and hosted in Orange Cloud – will support around 500 devices worldwide extending existing desktop and laptop security policies to smartphones and tablets, including corporate- owned or personal devices (BYOD).
Orange Mobile Device Management will support the IT department to define mobile policies, such as access control and security roles for staff members – irrespective of whether they use iOS, Android or Windows mobile devices.
The Orange solution also ensures that only devices that comply with corporate policies are able to access email, critical applications and data. Moreover, the Belgian MoFA is able to consolidate and simplify its mobile footprint with a single end-to-end solution that covers all of its many worldwide locations, said Orange Business.
“We chose Orange Business Services to help us protect sensitive information with a solution that provides excellent flexibility, scalability and global reach. The ongoing training they provide is also vital to deal with the complexity of mobility, allowing us to adjust our security policies to meet future requirements,” said Jorg Leenaards, CIO, Belgium Federal Public Service of Foreign Affairs.
