T-Systems has announced that MobileIron's Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) platform has been integrated into T-Systems Dynamic Workplace Services offering. With Dynamic Workplace, companies get a cloud-based, modern IT infrastructure – securely, flexibly and efficiently, as the company explains. Companies can order and administer MobileIron directly from the Dynamic Workplace user portal. MobileIron is hosted in T-Systems' secure datacenters.

With T-Systems Dynamic Workplace and MobileIron, IT departments can secure a diverse set of mobile devices and apps, and automatically provision enterprise settings such as Wi-Fi and VPN. If a mobile device falls out of compliance, IT can define remediation actions; for example, notifying the user of policy violations or selectively wiping corporate information without touching personal data.

Dynamic Workplace also features MobileIron's secure content management offering Docs@Work. With Docs@Work, companies can give employees an intuitive way to access, annotate, and share documents from Dynamic Workplace services like Exchange E-Mail or Dynamic Workplace repositories such as SharePoint or Fileserver and the IT administrator can establish data loss prevention (DLP) controls to protect these documents from unauthorized distribution.

"The future workplace is mobile, secure and easy to use. Our mutual crossoffering with MobileIron meets exactly these market demands. T-Systems' comprehensive IT and TC expertise allows us as one of the few providers to offer such a cloud solution," said Dr. Ferri Abolhassan, Director of T-Systems' IT Division and Telekom Security.

"We believe that mobile technologies increase a company's velocity by making it faster and easier to get and act on business information," said Barry Mainz, CEO, MobileIron. "Our integration with T-Systems gives customer the ability to use MobileIron's industry-leading mobile security platform combined with the ease of use of Dynamic Workplace's cloud offering.
