AT&T Offers Enterprise Smartphone Management from MobileIron

AT&T has begun offering the MobileIron Virtual Smartphone Platform (VSP) to help businesses better manage and secure smartphones within their organizations.

MobileIron, a start-up based in Mountain View, California, provides a server that enables companies to manage smartphone data, privacy, security, and cost across multiple operating systems using a single technology solution. This includes real-time intelligence and control over smartphone content, activity, and apps. This system can secure data without compromising privacy, even on employee-owned mobile phones.

MobileIron VSP from AT&T is expected to be available for purchase by AT&T business customers by the end of this month.

"More and more companies are using mobile technology as an essential business tool. However, as corporate information moves onto mobile devices, companies are challenged with visibility into what is happening with data, costs, security and applications," said Michael Antieri, President, Advanced Enterprise Mobility Solutions, AT&T Business Solutions. "With the addition of this new mobile device management service from MobileIron, we're providing customers the ability to manage devices across multiple platforms. Our team at AT&T is focused on helping customers find the right technology solutions to embrace the benefits mobility offers to businesses."

  • In August 2010, MobileIron announced $16 million in Series C financing for its multi-OS smartphone management solutions. The new funding came from Foundation Capital, which joined existing investors Norwest Venture Partners, Sequoia Capital, and Storm Ventures.
