ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion GmbH, a subsidiary of one of Europe’s biggest media groups, selected an enterprise mobility management (EMM) platform from Mobileiron Inc (NASDAQ:MOBL), the leader in enterprise mobile security, to centrally secure and manage more than 4,500 iOS mobile devices as well as Windows phones and Android devices.

“Our mobile apps are designed to make life easier for employees and to provide them with flexible support,” said Atakan Cakir, a solutions architect with the network and communication division or ProSiebenSat.1. “They’re intended for all areas of the business, and their numbers are growing all the time.”

Key factors in the decision
Cakir says his company chose MobileIron for the following reasons:

  • High-performance certificate management via the SCEP interface, which incorporates MobileIron into the company’s certificate authority.
  • Volume licensing for business apps
  • The Enterprise AppStore
  • Virtual appliance solution within the company’s own data center
  • Secure browser
  • VPN-per-app solution
  • API to Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager

The MobileIron environment was installed on the devices in collaboration with the systems integrator and IT service provider CANCOM, which provides contract maintenance services, while the EMM-platform itself is managed by ProSiebenSat.1 Produktion.

“The whole process was very pleasant and professional, and the project was implemented quickly and seamlessly,” says CANCOM’s key account manager, Kilian Dischinger.

Business apps make life easier for media specialists
Business apps form the central focus of the company’s mobility strategy, providing staff with the flexibility and independence they need to do their jobs and increasing their productivity. Examples include a mobile version of the group intranet, currently used by approximately 3,000 staff; a phonebook app; and the crowdvoting app WHOOP, which allows employees to ask questions and organize polls.

“We acquired MobileIron’s Platinum Bundle, the company’s biggest and most powerful version,” says Cakir. “We’ll gradually be implementing all the modules to make staff even more mobile and efficient.” (Original Source)
