Accellion, a provider of enterprise-class, secure collaboration and file sharing offerings, and MobileIron, a provider of enterprise management and security for mobile devices and apps, have partnered to help enterprises secure, manage and monitor mobile devices and the data shared via these devices.
The combination of Accellion Secure Collaboration with Accellion Mobile Apps will help enterprises to have control or insight into information being accessed and shared via mobile devices.
Together, MobileIron and Accellion are enabling IT to regain control over mobile devices and how employees collaborate and share information from them.
MobileIron’s technology wipes the device clean, including data stored on the Accellion Mobile App, in the event of a device is lost or stolen.
MobileIron CEO Bob Tinker said enterprise mobility is now about the app and business users expect to be able to do a lot more than just get their corporate email on their mobile device.
"We are delighted to be working with innovative companies like Accellion to provide enterprise IT with the tools and the apps they need to deliver mobility as a strategic business service," Tinker said.
Accellion CEO Yorgen Edholm said business users are quickly embracing the anytime, anywhere data access that mobile devices offer, and as a result it is becoming increasingly difficult for IT to protect confidential information and demonstrate compliance.
"With Accellion and MobileIron, businesses can be certain information is secure and compliance mandates are being met," Edholm said.
