18 Nov 15

Distribution Central has added MobileIron’s mobile enterprise security to its portfolio.

The new deal will see Distribution Central distributing MobileIron’s mobile security and enterprise mobility management platform in Australia and New Zealand.

Nick Verykios, Distribution Central managing director and chief executive, says BYOD and the consumerisation of IT are driving the need for businesses to address enterprise mobility management and security.

“MobileIron enhances our technology portfolio with its enterprise level mobile management solutions,” Verykios says.

“Coupled with our complete portfolio of channel support services, technical expertise and coverage, our ANZ partners will be well-equipped to address their customers’ contemporary business challenges,” he adds.

MobileIron’s platform is designed to secure data at rest on mobile devices, in apps and in cloud storage, and secure data in motion as it moves between the corporate network, devices and storage repositories.

Matt Bennett, MobileIron general manager and vice president of sales, Asia Pacific and Japan, says Distribution Central’s high quality of support services, ability to scale and its strong technical expertise fits well with the vendor’s commitment to provide mobile security solutions that can ‘secure and transform’ even the most complex enterprise environment.

“Mobility is a major challenge for businesses as they need to balance the need to increase productivity with the need to secure enterprise data,” Bennett says.

“With MobileIron’s EMM platform, we’re able to offer our partners the opportunity to deploy highly-customised mobility solutions that will transform their customers’ business processes and workflows.”
