Enterprise Mobile Expands Offerings With Services That Enable Secure Use of iPhone in the Enterprise

New Services Help Enterprises Deploy, Manage and Support iPhone™ in Increasingly Diverse Mobility Environments

WATERTOWN, MA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2009) - Enterprise Mobile, a provider of services that help enterprises develop, deploy, support and manage mobility strategies, today announced professional and outsource services for managing the deployment of iPhone in the enterprise. As part of its commitment to help organizations understand and manage complex and varied mobility technologies, Enterprise Mobile is delivering services that ease adoption of the iPhone platform and enable enterprises to adopt the popular Apple smart phone in a way that provides users consistent service levels.

Enterprise Mobile Professional Services for iPhone help companies understand the technical issues involved in deploying the iPhone, including infrastructure requirements and device management alternatives. For example, Enterprise Mobile works with customers to enable email integration with the iPhone by leveraging Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync®. With Enterprise Mobile's Outsource Services for iPhone, companies can confidently offload any phase of their IT mobility initiatives -- device procurement, deployment, replacement and repair, help desk support and recycling -- to provide their mobile workers with the type of service they demand for devices based on other platforms.

The company's new offerings for iPhone provide the same types of services that have allowed enterprises to entrust their mobility initiatives to Enterprise Mobile to manage and support Windows Mobile®, BlackBerry®, and other devices that companies are using to enhance the productivity and responsiveness of the mobile workforce. Drawing on deep knowledge of the intricacies of the mobility ecosystem, as well as optimal approaches for addressing device management, security, and application deployment, Enterprise Mobile has created new services that give companies greater flexibility in mapping the selection of mobile devices to the applications they will support. Without sacrificing service levels or introducing management complexity, enterprises can take advantage of the new services to add the iPhone to the mix of devices they allow to access their network and other corporate assets.

"Increasingly enterprises are giving employees some say in selecting the mobile devices they use to do their jobs, and a good number are choosing iPhones," said Mort Rosenthal, Enterprise Mobile Chairman and CEO. "Other organizations are considering the iPhone as the platform they'll use to deploy line of business applications. We apply best practices that address the specific challenges of designing and executing secure, manageable applications on the iPhone platform. Those services allow enterprises to bring the iPhone into their IT environment, confident that the user experience will be consistent -- whether two, three, or more mobility platforms are supported."

A leading multinational multimedia and broadcasting organization tapped Enterprise Mobile to streamline the processes needed for an enterprise-scale mobility deployment and to hold down costs associated with managing and supporting more than 2,500 multi-platform mobile devices. By outsourcing all phases of mobility to Enterprise Mobile, the broadcaster is cost effectively providing its employees with iPhone, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry devices, efficiently replacing lost or damaged devices and giving users dependable support that significantly minimizes their downtime.
