MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the company that introduced the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform for the enterprise, today announced that organizations across agriculture, healthcare, law enforcement, manufacturing, retail, transportation and utilities industries rely on MobileIron’s comprehensive unified endpoint management (UEM) platform to secure devices used by frontline workers and first responders, resulting in improved workforce efficiency.
“We are committed to helping organizations empower frontline workers with the tools they need to succeed, while also increasing security and protecting against emerging threats,” said Brian Foster, SVP of product management at MobileIron. “Right now, amid the coronavirus crisis, frontline responders across healthcare, government, fire, police, emergency medicine and retail are more essential than ever before. At the same time, these workers are being pushed to the limits of their capacity. MobileIron enables these critical workers to securely access the business apps and data they need to provide their essential services.”
With MobileIron’s UEM platform, organizations can achieve comprehensive control over their business data and frontline responders can increase productivity. MobileIron’s UEM platform validates every device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user. It allows for continuous enforcement and protection of data, both on the device and on the network, resulting in a secure mobile work experience.
“According to IDC data, more than one third of corporate liable mobile devices are deployed in a dedicated single purpose model, which we’d classify as frontline worker devices,” said Phil Hochmuth, Program Vice President, Enterprise Mobility and Client Endpoint Management, IDC. “Organizations need a unified endpoint management solution to manage these devices at scale. With platforms such as MobileIron’s, IT organizations can help ensure that devices are in a secure state, while frontline workers can access corporate data anytime, anywhere.”
Below are a few examples of organizations that have achieved frontline worker success with MobileIron:
- Signature HealthCARE: Healthcare workers leverage mobile devices secured by MobileIron to securely access patient files, decreasing manual paperwork and enhancing healthcare outcomes. These workers provide life-saving services to infirmed patients who cannot travel to a hospital and need care at home.
- Australian police department with over 10,000 officers: Police officers use iPads secured by MobileIron to access critical apps and information in the field, reducing administration work and enabling the police officers to focus on their mission of making one of the largest Australian states as safe as possible.
- U.S. government agency focused on disaster relief: Disaster recovery personnel use derived credentials on their mobile devices to seamlessly login into mission critical apps, eliminating usernames and passwords.
- European transportation company serving over 11 million passengers annually: Train drivers and managers use mobile devices and apps secured by MobileIron to improve the customer experience through reduced maintenance times and improved operational efficiencies both on the trains and in the depot.
MobileIron UEM allows IT to assign role-based access to individual groups and users through a single management console, which is critical as frontline workers frequently share devices. Organizations can also build upon MobileIron UEM with enabling technologies such as zero sign-on (ZSO) user and device authentication, multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD).

MobileIron is redefining enterprise security with the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform built on the foundation of unified endpoint management (UEM) to secure access and protect data across the perimeter-less enterprise. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by a “never trust, always verify” approach. MobileIron goes beyond identity management and gateway approaches by utilizing a more comprehensive set of attributes before granting access. A mobile-centric, zero trust approach validates the device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user.
The MobileIron security platform is built on the foundation of award-winning and industry-leading unified endpoint management (UEM) capabilities with additional zero trust-enabling technologies, including zero sign-on (ZSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD). Over 19,000 customers, including the world’s largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies and other highly regulated companies, have chosen MobileIron to enable a seamless and secure user experience by ensuring only authorized users, devices, apps, and services can access business resources.
