Smartphone monitoring application introduced for Apple iPad by MobileIron

Share this article:

MobileIron has announced the launch of a smartphone access monitoring application for the Apple iPad.

The company said that the app takes advantage of the rich interface, portability and visual space of the iPad to give IT teams a mobile command centre from which they can monitor and take action on smartphones accessing enterprise email. Its features include a dashboard view of smartphone connection activity, identification of unauthorised or risky access and blocking of rogue devices.

Bob Tinker, CEO of MobileIron, said: "We are at the intersection of two trends: widespread adoption of smartphones in the enterprise and the need for IT to take their own operations mobile. The iPhone is a key driver of the first and the iPad allows us to offer an innovative solution for the second.

"With our new MobileIron Sentry App for iPad customers can mobilise enterprise email without letting in unauthorised devices. MobileIron Sentry is the guard at the gate, protecting enterprise data."
