MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, April 11, 2018 – MobileIron (NASDAQ:MOBL), the secure foundation for modern work, and Lenovo (HKSE:992) today announced that the companies are expanding their partnership to build and bring to market a new offering that helps companies deliver modern work experiences to their employees. The offering will combine Lenovo’s devices with MobileIron’s industry-leading unified endpoint management (UEM) platform making it easy for companies to procure both the devices and software they need to operate securely and efficiently. Customers will benefit from working with dedicated experts to help build and deploy an end-to-end solution.
“Lenovo and MobileIron are uniquely positioned to help companies make modern work a reality,” said Igor Bergman, vice-president and Head of Software, Lenovo. “In 2017, we established a reseller relationship with MobileIron as our preferred solution. Our next step is developing technology integrations, such as BIOS-level integration, that will streamline and improve the out of box experience for our customers.”
“We see an opportunity to help our customers move from legacy technologies to modern management,” said Simon Biddiscombe, CEO, MobileIron. “The promise of modern work is exciting. When companies have the technologies to get information to people when and where they need it, they accelerate decision making, improve efficiency, and increase their competitiveness. We’re excited to work with Lenovo as our strategic partner to transform the way enterprises secure endpoints and data.”
Modern work requires modern security
Modern work is an environment where people can make better, faster decisions using whatever devices and clouds they want, and they can work easily and safely from a company office or a coffee shop. However, in a modern work environment, corporate data moves outside the data center and corporate networks. MobileIron establishes a zone of trust around clouds and Lenovo devices that hold corporate data to separate and protect business information, and to keep personal information private. The Lenovo/MobileIron offering will give companies a simple, efficient way to procure, secure, and manage all Lenovo devices, and to deploy and secure enterprise cloud services and applications.
MobileIron provides the secure foundation for companies around the world to transform into Mobile First organizations. For more information, please visit www.mobileiron.com.
