Seeing your company data fall into the wrong hands is a nightmare scenario for many businesses, yet this is becoming increasingly likely these days, precisely because of mobile access to cloud solutions. Traditional methods, focusing on users themselves, may have been perfectly adequate for desktop computers, but they make no allowance for the type of device used, or the application in question. In other words, they are completely inappropriate for mobile devices. This goes some way to explaining why many businesses are still reluctant to rely on cloud-based solutions, but there are answers to this problem if you know where to look. MobileIron offers MobileIron Access, which uses smart guidelines to prevent unauthorized end devices, users, and apps connecting to enterprise cloud services. At the same time, MobileIron Access also ensures that you no longer need to enter user data thanks to a seamless, single sign-on in secure environments.
Cloud solutions: benefits and requirements
No access for unauthorized devices, users, and apps
To reduce the risk of data theft, the aim is to prevent unauthorized devices, users, and apps accessing the enterprise cloud. Which is precisely where MobileIron Access comes in. MobileIron Access ensures that only verified users, using verified and compliant end devices, and approved apps, are able to connect to business data and services.
Say a registered user downloads the Salesforce app from the Enterprise App Store and wants to access it from their company smartphone, they can connect to the platform without a password by using single sign-on (SSO). On the other hand, if they try to access the app from their private tablet, access will be denied or limited, as although their user data will be valid, the end device used will not have been authenticated and secured to the same level.
Seamless single sign-on for unparalleled ease of use
Secure log-in with multifactor authentication
Smart guidelines for context-dependent access control
