As more businesses embark on a digital transformation journey and shift towards a mobile cloud computing model, they are turning towards MobileIron to implement a mobile-centric zero trust approach to security.

It provides the visibility and IT controls needed to secure, manage and monitor every device, user, app, and network being used to access business data.
“We believe being named a Strong Performer in Zero Trust from Forrester Research is a testament to our platform’s ability to deliver the best user experience and significantly reduce the risk of data breaches,” said Brian Foster, SVP of Product Management, MobileIron. “We are laser focused on helping our customers address their top security challenges. That’s why earlier this year, we ushered in a new era of authentication with zero password access to business services. Passwords have remained one of the biggest security risks, and our zero sign-on technology enables organizations to replace passwords with a secure and frictionless alternative.”

MobileIron is redefining enterprise security with the industry’s first mobile-centric, zero trust platform built on the foundation of unified endpoint management (UEM) to secure access and protect data across the perimeter-less enterprise. Zero trust assumes that bad actors are already in the network and secure access is determined by a “never trust, always verify” approach. MobileIron goes beyond identity management and gateway approaches by utilizing a more comprehensive set of attributes before granting access. A mobile-centric, zero trust approach validates the device, establishes user context, checks app authorization, verifies the network, and detects and remediates threats before granting secure access to a device or user.
The MobileIron security platform is built on the foundation of award-winning and industry-leading unified endpoint management (UEM) capabilities with additional zero trust-enabling technologies, including zero sign-on (ZSO), multi-factor authentication (MFA), and mobile threat defense (MTD). Over 19,000 customers, including the world’s largest financial institutions, intelligence agencies and other highly regulated companies, have chosen MobileIron to enable a seamless and secure user experience by ensuring only authorized users, devices, apps, and services can access business resources.
