MobileIron, the security backbone for multi-cloud enterprises, has announced that the German Red Cross of Rhineland-Palatinate (Deutsche Rotes Kreuz Landesverband Rheinland-Pfalz e. V.) will use MobileIron’s platform to manage Windows laptops and smartphones.
The Rhineland-Palatinate chapter will use MobileIron Bridge, a solution that allows mobile devices, laptops and desktops running Windows 10 to be managed via a single central console and communication channel.
“MobileIron Bridge will reduce the administrative burden on our employees,” enthused Christian Elsner, Head of the Information and Technology Center (ITC) at the Rhineland-Palatinate chapter. The administrators at ITC can now remotely add apps and make changes to devices at real time. With MobileIron Core, they can also remove corporate data from devices of employees leaving the organisation, or block their access.
The Rhineland-Palatinate chapter has been using the MobileIron platform for four years and now, MobileIron Bridge represents a key step towards a mobile-first environment. The management console, which has already been applied to smartphones, will ultimately handle some 200 laptops.
Magnus Piasta, Mobility Project Manager at ITC, is very satisfied with the rollout of MobileIron Bridge. “We received really good advice and support from MobileIron Professional Services before and during the implementation.”
MobileIron CEO Simon Biddiscombe, added: “The chapter’s experience shows that MobileIron Bridge helps organisations modernise their Windows operations using enterprise mobility management and at the same time, retain the sophisticated security guidelines and control mechanisms offered by traditional client management tools.”
