Orange UK has announced the launch of Secure Mobility from Orange, an end-to-end security solution that lets businesses manage company data on tablets and smartphones. The service, which can be used on company phones and on employees’ own handsets, combines Orange’s Mobile Device Management and its Data VPN.
Secure Mobility is available on Apple iOS and Android devices. It offers remote set-up and management of business applications, remote locking/wiping and Microsoft Exchange compatibility.
Max Taylor, Business Director at Orange UK parent company Everything Everywhere, said “Smartphones and tablets might be empowering businesses and their employees, but they are also generating new management and security challenges for IT teams who are under mounting pressure to ensure the security of a growing mobile fleet and the data it is being used to access. The fact that Secure Mobility is highly scalable and has a flexible pricing structure means that data protection and device management practices can adapt with the mobile fleet, rather than lagging behind it – even if a business has a ‘bring your own device’ policy. 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.”
