Verizon adds mobile management features
New York — Verizon Enterprise Solutions has added new features to its cloud-based Mobile Workforce Manager solution and signed a resale agreement with enterprise mobility management provider MobileIron. Verizon’s Mobile Workforce Manager, previously known as Enterprise-Mobility-as-a-Service, has been enhanced with new features that securely separate users’ business and personal lives across devices and improve functionality for managing mobile applications, offering an overall simplified user experience.
Specific features include separate corporate and personal personas for data and applications that reside on a device, the ability to wrap security policies around a given application, and a single portal for an end user or administrator to make any changes to the service or to add devices.
In addition, for enterprises and organizations seeking a premise-based platform for managing mobile devices and applications, MobileIron’s portfolio can now be sold to organizations by Verizon Enterprise Solutions account representatives that are based in the U.S. Later this year, the resale agreement will be extended to Verizon clients in Europe and Asia-Pacific.
"As organizations continue to grapple with mobile device management, our cloud-based Mobile Workforce Manager solution and MobileIron’s platform are a powerful combination that will give our clients greater choice on a global platform," said John Harrobin, chief marketing officer at Verizon Enterprise Solutions.
