EE has signed a deal with MobileIron that sees the UK operator offer the vendor’s Cloud platform to boost security to its enterprise customers.

MobileIron Cloud from EE is a multi-operating system enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform for small to medium businesses that provides simplified security and control of mobile devices.

EE is the first operator worldwide to offer the platform as a MobileIron-hosted service.

The service offers businesses the opportunity to configure and selectively manage mobile apps, content and devices, automatically enforce usage policies, and retire mobile devices when they are lost or when an employee leaves the company.

It includes a content catalogue, which allows employees to choose the files they want, then updates those files automatically when new versions become available.

Users can also choose mobile apps from MobileIron Cloud’s app catalogue for tasks such as expense reporting, travel booking, collaborative working and customer relationship management.

EE’s decision to partner with MobileIron follows research that shows 10 million devices holding sensitive business data were lost in the last 12 months.

Gerry McQuade, Chief Marketing Officer for Business at EE, commented: “Security is essential if businesses want to become genuinely mobile without putting sensitive company data at risk.”

In February, the operator announced that over 4,000 enterprises had signed up to its 4G LTE network.

Nigel Hawthorne, EMEA Marketing Director at MobileIron, added: “Small and medium businesses face many of the same challenges as larger enterprises. They need to securely deliver files and apps, and manage employee devices.”
