January 28, 2013
The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy and Consumerization of IT have been the primary focal point for CIOs. To help CIOs address the challenges associated with securing their networks in this scenario, AirWatch, in partnership with Siemens (News - Alert) Enterprise Communications, has unveiled a new mobile security management solution.
The integrated solution combines AirWatch's (News - Alert) comprehensive mobile management solution and Mobile Identity Access Management (Mobile IAM) from Enterasys, a Siemens Enterprise Communications company.
According to John Marshall (News - Alert), president and CEO at AirWatch, the extended partnership with Siemens Enterprise Communications and Enterasys creates an integrated mobile platform, tailored for multiple management options, that fuses mobile unified communications, mobile identity access management and mobile device, application and content management from a single console.
Thanks to Siemens Enterprise (News - Alert) Communications' OpenScape Mobile and OpenScape Web Collaboration solutions, customers now gain increased visibility and control of devices and users attached to their network.
They now find provisioning and management of these solutions increasingly more powerful andefficient.
AirWatch provides mobility management solutions that simplify the deployment, management and ongoing support of Siemens tools across multiple device types and mobile operating systems from one single console, whereas Enterasys (News - Alert) Mobile IAM gives companies additional control over deployment of mobility solutions within the corporate environment.
The combination of the three delivers an unrivalled ability to deploy, support and manage Mobile Enterprise solutions.
"BYOD and the Consumerization of IT is a primary focal point for CIO's,” said Chris Hummel, chief commercial officer at Siemens Enterprise Communications. “Through our partnership with AirWatch, we have enabled a more simplified process to confidently onboard devices, deploy applications and secure network assets.”
Siemens Enterprise Communications' OpenScape Mobile and OpenScape Web Collaboration solutions allow CIOs to deploy a holistic and unified BYOD solution architecture with End-to-End management for all users and devices.
Further, it allows joint customers to perform application, inventory and service management of all devices with in-depth multilevel profiling, assessment and context-based policy enforcement for all devices and users: guests, BYOD, corporate – managed or unmanaged.
"Our Enterasys Mobile IAM is further enhanced through integration with MDM solutions as part of our OneFabric offering to our customers,” said Markus Nispel, chief technologist at Enterasys. “Working with the leaders in the Mobility Management market, such as AirWatch, enables our customers to make an easy choice when deploying BYOD solutions for mobility."AirWatch's mobility management solutions are available through a referral program launched last month by Siemens Enterprise Communications.
