du launches MDM platform

UAE carrier du is expanding its managed services products with the launch of its own mobile device management (MDM) platform.
du states the platform offers businesses on-premise and cloud based management of mobile devices, and uses MobileIron, a mobile app, document and device security platform for protection. The MDM product also offers access to back-end business software and servers, and the ability to remotely wipe data from devices.

Farid Faraidooni, chief commercial office at du, says the product will help businesses to cope with growing use of staff’s personal devices in the workplace. “All the data is encrypted prior to transfer, with MobileIron providing delivery, configuration, data-in-motion and data-at-rest protection.”
