Absolute

I do think it is well worth the cost and consideration, especially if you are using it on devices containing electronic medical records, personal health information or personal privacy information or devices that contain proprietary information, critical business information or other information that needs to be securely protected. It can also be used to track a device (individual) as well if that is your goal. We use it as an extra precaution to track our mental health clinicians that do home visits. It allows us to keep track of their whereabouts, in case an issue arises at a client's home. We are able to send someone out to check or assist, alert emergency services or send law enforcement if a situation should arise.

MobileIron

We have very few complaints when it comes to MI. So far it has offered a great user experience and has been dependable. It handles our mail flow and synchronization well within iOS. If a company is looking for a solution that works with regular updates to their product and regular updates, then MobileIron is a great place to start

Pros

  • Absolute can track devices in real time. If a device is stolen, you can track it. You can lock the device, wipe it or send a message to it. By tracking the device, you can also locate the user that has the device if it is in their possession. You can use it to track your people if you choose, but we use it only to locate an employee if they have not been heard from and have not replied to a cell phone call or text.
  • Once Absolute is set up it requires no intervention. Setup is easy and the management interface is easy to use.
  • It has the ability to track on Google Map with recent and historical locations. Geofences can be setup and triggered to send email alerts.
  • Absolute reporting on the device provides OS information, software inventory, malware software reporting, etc.
  • It protects itself from being removed with its’ persistence technology, which keeps it from being removed from the device, even if the device is reformatted and reloaded.
  • The reporting capability on the devices provides a lot of information on each device that can be very useful in monitoring devices that are typically detached from the network.

  • With 6.0.1 it allows us to make very specific filters to apply to labels. This makes it easier to manage our different AD groups and make sure that our process is automated.
  • MobileIron detailed very well what we need to do to ensure High Availability on our Sentry Servers and Disaster Recovery on our VSP. This sped up our process and we are now implementing HA.
  • We also like how easy it is to add apk files for Android application distribution. We use this in our test environment and it works very well for Android.

Cons

  • I do not know where I would consider this product to be deficient in functionality, difficult to use or any major changes that needed to be addressed.
  • I wish the pricing of this product was a little lower, but I do think it is well worth the cost and consideration, especially if you are using it on devices containing electronic medical records, personal health information or personal privacy information.

  • One of the things we would like to see with MobileIron is greater support or better PIM solutions that work with Lotus Notes. We know that it is a tall order but it is something that gives us the most trouble when trying to roll out Android devices with our BYOD program. As of now, we have yet to find a solution that works for our situation.
  • Another great functionality that could be of some great use would be the ability to remotely control devices or at least view their screens. I know that controlling screens is possible with other MDMs and it would be great to see it on MI as well.

At 162 devices there would need to be a huge issue or feature that MobileIron is missing to take on the task of moving to a new MDM. Currently that is not the case. Support has been very good in answering questions or addressing issues if they arise. In all honesty MobileIron just works and we don't have many calls on the delivery of email and other exchange data to devices.

It is online based, after learning content you can take a test and if you don't pass you get two other chances to pass. Once you pass the test you can print out your certification or save it

Alternatives Considered

I have only used Absolute Data and Device Security (DDS). It was recommended by my Dell sales rep. After reviewing the product info, and loading a demo, it became clear that this is what was needed to add to our existing security to protect us from information loss due to a data breach on our portable devices. I presented this solution to the appropriate departments, and they agreed that this was something well worth the investment.

We investigated MDM about 3 years ago and at the time MobileIron was the most prominent solution int he market. The only other competitor that would work for us was Airwatch and we found MobileIron's customer service, scalability and VM solutions far superior at the time. since then alot of other major Security companies like Mcafee and Symatec have solutions of their own but in research they do not compete with the feature set or flexibility of MobileIron.

Return on Investment

  • I think that Absolute Data and Device Security (DDS) is well worth the investment to protect important data securely. Without it, a data breach could cost an astronomical amount of money and you many never be able to complete recover from it.
  • It also aids in recovery efforts for stolen devices and therefor reduces the financial cost of replacing the lost devices.
  • There is a free trial available that is well worth the time investment to see if Absolute Data and Device Security (DDS) might be a valuable tool to add to your existing security plans.

  • MobileIron has made work while traveling extremely easy.
  • MobileIron has allowed our sales force to easily work in the field and access the information they need.
  • MobileIron has allowed for a very flexible work environment and now we can work from our phone when we don't have our PC available.
