supporting secure BYOD adoption in enterprise networks
ORANGE, Conn. -- January 9, 2013
Tangoe, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNGO), a leading global provider of Communications
Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, today announced the
expansion of its Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution to include integrated
mobile device containerization functionality. Tangoe’s mobile device
containerization delivers a comprehensive smartphone and tablet solution
addressing device usage, device and network access, and data and application
security. This new, integrated functionality adds increased levels of support
to enterprise mobility strategies by securing and managing devices and
applications entering enterprise networks as a result of Bring Your Own Device
“IT management is challenged to balance employee demands—which encompass BYOD
access to enterprise resources via customized business applications, and
real-time collaboration—while protecting corporate data, mitigating corporate
mobility risks, and preventing unnecessary mobile costs,” said Al Subbloie,
president, CEO, and founder of Tangoe. “Integrating containerization into the
MDM solutions set, as well as offering it as a standalone solution, is another
way we are helping enterprises create and carry out their mobility lifecycle
strategies. We see this solution as having appeal not only in U.S. and Asian
markets, but also in European markets where violations of data privacy rights
of employees can result in significant fines. Containerization enables
enterprises to effectively address employee data privacy concerns while still
protecting corporate data and network security.”
