Symplified and MobileIron Partner to Integrate Cloud-Based Identity Technology into Enterprise Mobility Management
Boulder, Colo. – December 10, 2013 – Symplified, a leader in cloud identity and access management (IAM), today announced enterprise mobility management leader MobileIron has named the company a MobileIron Technology Alliance Partner. Symplified is the first to be certified to deliver identity management, single sign-on (SSO) and authentication capabilities to MobileIron customers. Together, the companies will make it easier for businesses to manage application access in today’s BYOD world while meeting security demands and enhancing user experience.
“MobileIron and Symplified are both committed to helping businesses implement successful BYOD strategies to foster productivity while maintaining the highest levels of security, privacy and user experience,” said Ojas Rege, VP Strategy, MobileIron. “Our partnership with Symplified, a leader in cloud IAM, enables our customers to leverage trusted, proven mobile identity management technologies.”
Starting this week, Symplified and MobileIron will pre-integrate SSO and user authentication capabilities into the MobileIron IT Platform, which secures and manages mobile applications, content, and devices. Through a centralized management console, customers can manage mobile security and application usage and get visibility into how mobile, cloud and on-premises applications are being used. IT administrators can also remotely authorize users and manage access and usage policies.
“Identity and mobility are rapidly converging to create a new enterprise perimeter. As more IT departments embrace BYOD, employees, contractors, partners and customers are accessing on-premises and cloud-based applications from multiple devices anywhere in the world. Productivity gains, customer satisfaction, cost savings, and greater efficiency are met by an increased security risk of exposing sensitive personal and corporate information,” said Shayne Higdon, president and CEO of Symplified. “Symplified was founded on the principle that identity is central to enterprise security. MobileIron is at the forefront of enterprise mobility management and we’re extremely pleased to bring our latest mobile identity technology to market with them.”
Symplified enables IT organizations to simplify user access to applications, regain visibility and control over usage and meet security and compliance requirements.
