Zenprise, Inc., the leader in secure mobile device management (MDM), says the Rotterdam Public Transport Company (RET), working with SecureLink, a Zenprise partner, has selected Zenprise MobileManager to ensure a secure environment for its expanding mobile operations.
With approximately 3000 employees, Rotterdam Public Transport carries over 600,000 passengers every day, or 185.7 million passengers per year. RET utilizes a range of smartphones and tablet devices including the iPad in its daily operations. These devices have been selected for their availability and capability to accept and interact with OV-Chip cards. It is expected that the new OV-Chip cards will replace all other public transport tickets in The Netherlands.
As RET migrates to the OV-Chip cards, the need for ensuring mobile device security is paramount. In order to select a MDM solution, RET sent a Request For Proposal (RFP) to a number of MDM companies, including several positioned in the Leaders Quadrant of the 2012 Mobile Device Management Software Magic Quadrant1 from Gartner, Inc. After reviewing these offerings, RET ultimately selected the SecureLink/Zenprise solution. RET chose the Zenprise MobileManager based on the high degree of security, functionality and quality of the product.
"We were already doing business with SecureLink; we know their quality of service and flexibility, said Reinder van Raalte, technical development manager for RET. "We worked with SecureLink to do an extensive evaluation of Zenprise MobileManager and determined that because of its high degree of security, functionality and quality, Zenprise was the right choice. We now have a large part of the roll-out successfully completed and we're very pleased."
