MobileIron, HTC Deliver Business-Ready Android Devices

By Jessica Binns, Contributing Editor — May 11, 2012

Mobile security provider MobileIron is collaborating with HTC Corporation to provide an integrated, standardized enterprise mobility solution for global customers. This collaboration will take place through HTCPro, a program that provides mobile solutions for companies and their employees and ensures that HTC's entire portfolio is business-ready.

"Many organizations already allow employees to access corporate systems and information through personally-owned, corporate-approved mobile devices. To mitigate security risks and minimize IT administration, however, they need a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program that balances corporate security with user choice," said David Jaeger, executive director of global enterprise and services for HTC and head of HTCpro. "MobileIron software, used in conjunction with HTC devices, gives customers an out of the box solution that delivers enterprise-grade security enhancements and is easy to manage, enabling them to implement a 'BYOD by HTC' policy."

The variation of features across OS versions and devices themselves makes it challenging for IT to know which devices are enterprise-ready. HTCpro delivers consistent enterprise enablement across all HTC devices. The combination of HTC devices and MobileIron software gives IT departments essential enterprise features to increase security in a mobile working environment:

Remote lock/wipe
Remote email configuration
Remote VPN and Wi-Fi configuration
Certificates store
Secure app provisioning
