-- Leading Insurance Company Enters New Phase of Mobile IT with BYOD and Apps
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, has been selected by insurance specialists Hamilton Fraser as the mobile IT platform for the business. With the initial deployment complete, Hamilton Fraser is entering the next phase of its mobile IT strategy and delivering mobile apps and content to employees using Docs@Work, AppConnect, and AppTunnel.
Hamilton Fraser provides dedicated insurance services to customers throughout the UK and abroad. The company wanted to enable its employees to use mobile apps in the workplace at the same time as it deployed a mix of corporate iOS and BYOD devices.
After evaluating products from Meraki, AirWatch, and Good Technology, Hamilton Fraser selected MobileIron because the platform was the easiest to deploy and manage, and it was also the most scalable solution. In addition, Hamilton Fraser needed to ensure that they were in compliance with the heavily regulated insurance industry and MobileIron delivered the ease of management and control required whilst maintaining the highest levels of security and preserving the end user experience.
Eddie Hooker, CEO at Hamilton Fraser, explains, "Our IT department was experiencing a growing demand from senior management to access sensitive data on their company phones and tablets, and other employees wanted to bring in their own devices, to use in the work environment." Hooker continues, "Having evaluated a number of MDM solutions, we found MobileIron best suited our needs. For our IT team, it's incredibly easy to manage and maintain, and as for our employees, the end user experience remains intact - they don't even know MobileIron is there."
Working with trusted IT partner AIT, MobileIron's multi-OS platform is supporting a mix of corporate iPhones and iPads, as well as a new BYOD strategy, consisting of multiple operating systems. The ability to monitor and manage any device on any operating system is now available from a single console.
Now the initial deployment is completed, Hamilton Fraser is working with AIT to further develop its mobility strategy, with the goal of maximising the potential of its new mobile platform. "AIT is providing support, helping us get the very best from the solution - running workshops on MobileIron features like Docs@Work, AppConnect, and AppTunnel – as we work towards the widespread use of mobile apps and content in the workplace.
"With the simplicity of its device management and enablement, MobileIron gives us the peace of mind and the stability to easily manage the BYOD trend as it sweeps the organisation," Hooker concluded.
The leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, MobileIron's mission is to enable global companies to become Mobile First organizations, embracing mobility as their primary IT platform in order to transform their businesses and increase their competitiveness. Recognized by IDC as the fastest growing mobile enterprise management vendor in the world, MobileIron provides the scalable architecture, rapid innovation, and best practices for global companies to transform into Mobile First organizations.
