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.”
