Mobile First Customer Journey
Mobile First organizations embrace mobility as their primary IT platform in order to transform their businesses and increase their competitiveness. The Mobile First Customer Journey has three steps. The first step is migrating to the new generation of mobile smartphones and tablets and adopting ownership models like BYOD without sacrificing enterprise security or employee privacy. The second step is moving beyond email to mobile apps and content. The third step is driving true business transformation through the creation of new user experiences and business models that are only possible through mobile. MobileIron’s mission is to power this revolutionary Mobile First transformation.

Mobile First Platform Innovation
Mobile user requirements and technologies evolve rapidly. The extensibility of the MobileIron platform led to the development and delivery of several unique solutions over the last year:

  • MobileIron was named Best Enterprise Mobile Service at the 2013 GSMA Mobile World Congress for its ability to separate business apps, content, and policies into an enterprise persona that can be managed separately from personal data.
  • MobileIron AppConnect was the first app containerization solution to provide dynamic policies and tunneling through both an SDK and app wrapper.
  • MobileIron App Delivery Network was the first app provisioning solution to allow the delivery of in-house enterprise apps to thousands of users without increased internal network load or download latency.
  • MobileIron Docs@Work was the first mobile DLP solution to stop the loss of email attachments in the native mobile email user experience.
  • MobileIron VSP V5 was the first on-premise mobile management appliance to be scale-tested for 100,000 fully-configured mobile devices on a single server.
  • MobileIron Connected Cloud was the first mobile management cloud service to both complete a SOC 2 Type I assessment and provide full operational service transparency.
  • MobileIron was granted the patents for mobile application management (U.S. Patent Number 8,359,016) and mobile activity intelligence (U.S. Patent Number 8,340,633).

Mobile First Business Scale
