MobileIron: best MDM solution
Score 8 out of 10
Overall Satisfaction with MobileIron
MobileIron is being used within our entire organization to deliver, administer and control all corporate mobile devices. Including but not limited to Apple iPads, Apple iPhones and Android devices. It serves to address compliance, control, deployment, security and administration of all mobile devices for business use. Coupled with Apple's Deployment Enrollment Program MobileIron has been proven to be a steadfast MDM solution which has grown with technology changes over the years. It has proved detrimental in providing solutions to common mobile business issues. We've implemented a corporate acceptance policy where no device is connected to our corporate network without MobileIron installed and configured.
- Removes only corporate information and apps when retiring devices
- Device registration is intuitive and robust
- App deployment is simple and unique
- Ability to limit user control over corporate installed apps
- Location services for lost or stolen devices is limited
- More separation between corporate and personal information
- Positive impact with increased productivity of mobile sales force
- Security compliance is built into the MDM solution
- Automatic configuration with remote management has been the biggest hurdle overcome with the use of MobileIron and Apple DEP
The client services and support for deployment have been outstanding whether we were installing the product for the first time to modifying the current configuration to adapt a new feature. The services provided by MobileIron have definitely made our company more successful and professional in the eyes of our clients by providing real-time information display with inventory and reconciliation as well as the ability to show clients current and future entitlements. The ability to quickly deploy needed in-house and custom third-party apps keep our sales force on the cutting edge of technology.
We've evaluated a number of other MDM solutions before finally deciding on MobileIron as our choice. These included AirWatch, Good, Citrix and IBM. None came close to the cost price point offered by MobileIron providing the same solutions. The initial setup/configuration was provided for free and training classes were exceptional. Other vendors did not offer the same level of support provided by MobileIron.
Mobile sales force - Well suited and appropriate given the audience. IT resources - Well suited for daily and follow the sun support. Email, calendar and contacts delivery for all mobile devices whether personal or corporately owned. Less suited for finance personnel where mobile devices aren't used for most of their daily work. Since we are a global company the adoption of Mobileiron has been installed and accepted throughout all our country offices. If I had to recommend one MDM solution it would be Mobileiron for its control and administration features.
