When Windows Phone 8 was first launched, the majority of its platform innovations were focused on delivering a robust end-user experience. Strong support for Microsoft productivity tools made Windows Phone an attractive option for business users, but not all enterprises were ready to fully embrace the new platform. While it included baseline security and management capabilities, Windows Phone 8 did not meet the stringent policies some enterprises required for protecting corporate data and resources. The release of Windows Phone 8.1 changes the game with a rich new feature-set for business users, and the compliance and security capabilities enterprise IT departments require.
As a committed Microsoft partner for mobile device management (MDM), MobileIron provides a purpose-built mobile IT platform that helps enterprises take advantage of Windows Phone 8.1 to achieve their Mobile First ambitions.
This whitepaper is designed to help IT organizations better understand how MobileIron enables a more manageable and secure experience for Windows Phone users.
