Orange Secure Mobility Tightens Up Mobile Security
Orange has today announced the launch of Secure Mobility from Orange, an end-to-end security solution for the remote management of data that sits on business and employee-owned mobile devices.
Secure Mobility combines Mobile Device Management from Orange and Data VPN from Orange, which aims to give business customers enhanced secure remote working capabilities, whilst reducing the administrative workload for IT departments.
With Secure Mobility, businesses will be able to remotely set-up and manage business applications on mobile devices, enforce security policies and carry out lock and wipe functions if one goes missing. Crucially, Secure Mobility fully integrates into Microsoft Exchange environments and provides customers with administrator and end-user self-service portals. Businesses can control user authentication and content encryption, ensuring that only authorised and trusted parties can access their corporate network.
This will be welcome news for smartphone developers and netoworks alike, with the increasing capability of mobile technology bringing more security concerns. Emerging technologies such as mobile TV deal with similar issues of personal accounts and personal user information.
Max Taylor, Business Director at Everything Everywhere, the company that runs Orange UK, stated that more security would lead to more profitable business models:
Smartphones and tablets might be empowering businesses and their employees, but they are also generating new management and security challenges for IT teams. This reduces administrative overheads and allows IT teams to spend less time managing employees’ devices and protecting their networks and more time focusing on helping the business grow.”
Secure Mobility is available for use with multiple devices and operating systems, including iOS and Android.
