MobileIron, a key player in the mobile enterprise security space, has announced a strategic partnership with Distribution Central to distribute its mobile security and enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform in Australia and New Zealand.

“We’re excited to be working with an experienced, full-service distribution partner such as Distribution Central to expand our business in Australia and New Zealand,” says Matt Bennett, General Manager and Vice President, Sales, Asia Pacific and Japan, MobileIron.

“The high quality of its support services, its ability to scale, and its strong technical expertise reflects our commitment to provide superior mobile security solutions that can secure and transform even the most complex enterprise environment.”

MobileIron’s platform is designed to secure data-at-rest on the mobile devices, in apps, and in cloud storage, and secure data-in-motion as it moves between the corporate network, devices, and storage repositories.

Commenting on the deal, Nick Verykios - Managing Director and CEO, Distribution Central - believes that BYOD and the consumerisation of IT are driving the need for businesses to address EMM and security.

“MobileIron enhances our technology portfolio with its enterprise level mobile management solutions,” he adds.

“Coupled with our complete portfolio of channel support services, technical expertise and coverage, our A/NZ partners will be well-equipped to address their customers’ contemporary business challenges.”

With MobileIron, Bennett says IT organisations can secure corporate information wherever it lives while preserving the sanctity of employee privacy and a user experience that employees are looking for.

“Mobility is a major challenge for businesses as they need to balance the need to increase productivity with the need to secure enterprise data,” he adds.

“With MobileIron’s EMM platform, we’re able to offer our partners the opportunity to deploy highly-customised mobility solutions that will transform their customers’ business processes and workflows.”

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
