Enterprise Mobility Management provider MobileIron (MOBL) is helping IT professionals to keep up with rapidly changing enterprise mobile strategies with the debut of its new Insight tablet app, which is part of the company’s new summer release package for IT professionals. With the addition of Insight and the new features included in the summer release, MobileIron is looking to give IT professionals a serious agility boost for their EMM solutions in the office or on the go.
Among the new features provided in MobileIron’s summer release, the new Insight app is the most likely candidate to change the way IT interacts with their mobile device networks. With the Insight app, MobileIron is giving admins the ability to access and manage their EMM devices from anywhere, anytime using its new free tablet app for iOS and Android.
With Insight, admins can keep an eye on the health of their mobile networks whether they are in the field or if they simply don’t have access to their desktop EMM setup. The app also allows admins to search for specific users and devices while viewing their devices by platform, ownership, carrier and compliance. Additionally, users can assign policies and troubleshoot device-specific issues directly from their tablets, including access to device status and configuration information on an individual basis.
“That’s really the core of Insight, which is taking the most common use cases that IT has in a MobileIron system and [packaging] them up so that the user can have a really nice tablet application wherever they go,” said Ojas Rege, vice president of Security for MobileIron, in an interview with The VAR Guy. “We believe this is the first time there has ever been an enterprise mobility application like this that takes mobile IT truly mobile.”
The release of Insight is part of MobileIron’s overarching summer release, which includes the new MobileIron Spaces structure and several other improvements to the existing MobileIron Core solution. MobileIron Spaces allows administrators to set boundaries and limit access to certain BYO devices depending on geography or access level, thus ensuring that only the correct employees have access to certain information or privileges. The solution also allows IT to set priorities for different devices, so policies will automatically adjust to the specific device in use.
MobileIron has also expanded its operating system platform to include support for Samsung’s recent KNOX 2.0 update solution, giving AppConnect users increased protection from data leakage. Expanded policy support for Windows Phone 8.1 is included as well, as more enterprise users begin to migrate away from BlackBerry’s (BBRY) signature OS.
Finally, MobileIron is giving users AppConnect containerization support for PhoneGap, the open source web software used for developing mobile apps. Advanced traffic control specifications will give administrators the ability to designate the route of their users’ mobile apps to ensure that content is thoroughly inspected before reaching its final destination.
The MobileIron Insight app is available now, with the rest of the summer release offerings scheduled to become available within the next several weeks.
“These are all tools that help IT become more agile,” said Rege. “They’re more productive, they can do their work better, they can respond to change, and in our mobile world that responsiveness to change winds up being what separates a high-performing IT organization from the [less productive] IT organizations.”
