We call this Mobile IT.

MobileIron lets enterprises, educational institutions, and government:

Protect data

Really should clarify to avoid confusion

Your rating: None (1 vote)

We were looking at using MobileIron as our MDM solution, but ended up moving to a different vendor simply because we were informed by the reseller that MobileIron could support multiple platforms.

What they failed to tell us or clarify was that it did not natively support multiple platforms, rather you were required to purchase 3rd party software to include Android and Windows phones. We made it very clear that we expected the MDM to natively support other devices, not for us to purchase more software and therefore increase our admin overhead when it came to managing licenses.

Management, security and the native device experience.

Your rating: None (1 vote)

Hi, my name is Sean, I work in Business Development for MobileIron. MobileIron is fanatical in supporting the native device experience on iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8. We can manage the native mail client on iOS and Windows Phone 8. For Android, there is no one mail client, so we manage the native mail clients on Samsung, Motorola and HTC. In addition to provisioning, we can selectively wipe these native device email experiences and provide access control to ActiveSync as a part of our product as well.

In addition, some customers desire a more "containerized" email experience where email is in a separate application. For this, we have support for third party email clients on both iOS and Android.

Finally, our security and management features are being extended to applications as well, allowing customers who write their own apps, beyond e-mail, to tie them to our management and security platform.

Please visit for details. Thanks!

This looks good business

This looks good business partner, with the right marketing plan, this will provide you better and comprehensive business management through mobile platform. Is this ideal for business startups? I have attended several expo, workshops, and even GenCon, but never seen such proposals like this.

Caveat Emptor!

We have been running Mobile Iron for the past year. If you work in an enterprise, where your users are all adults, and - for the most part - capable of helping themselves, and figuring out how to get around MI's quirks and burps, then it might be a good fit. I know one of my neighbors works at Abbvie and says it's great. My co-worker's brother works for the US Post Office, and he says it's great.

But, our experience with Mobile Iron has been a nightmare. We are a public K-8 with 1,400 iPads in a 1:1 environment from 1st grade to 5th grade, plus some 7th grade. We require a lot of automation because the primary kids can not be expected to handle the complexities of an Apple ID. Many don't even yet know how to spell their own name, never mind read a prompt. We put in a lot of manual labor to make MI do work on all the iPads. That may be a shortcoming with Apple's APIs. However, once everything was set up perfectly, we expected it to STAY set up. It did not. Apps disappear. When we push apps to devices, they almost never actually show up there. We are required to return to the device and re-enroll it (reinstall the MDM Profile) in order to get the apps to load.

I believe their support infrastructure is also grossly overloaded. I would call in with urgent matters, and get ignored for days or even weeks. At one point I had to email their CEO to get a response.

Needless to say, after less than a year, we are evaluating competitors. Even though keeping Mobile Iron would be thousands of dollars cheaper, I am fairly certain we'll be tossing it into the bin.

After still having issues a full year after implementation, we have moved to JAMF Casper.

Initial rollout of 76 devices has been less than smooth, thanks to Apple's limitations, but infinitely better than it was with Mobile Iron. A LOT of that can attributed to the fact that Casper's techs seem to know and understand how Apple's iOS licensing system (iTunes and App Store) work a LOT better than Mobile Iron does.

At least every problem we ran into with Casper was resolved in 48 hours or less, and no one has blamed my network, like MI did.

If you are rolling out iOS devices, and want to use Mobile Iron (because, hey - it's really inexpensive), you had better have a VERY firm grasp on how iOS works, and what AppleID's limitations are, BEFORE you deploy. I think, if MI had known what the Casper techs taught me, our MI deployment would have been much more successful.

Casper rocks

Your rating: None (2 votes)

After nearly a year with Casper, I have learned a great deal about Casper, as well iOS, over the last year. In fact, I am now a Casper Certified Technician.

I am now quite certain the main reason for our failure with Mobile Iron was due to a bug in MI that was resolved while we were using it, as well as gross incompetence by AT&T's professional installation service.

The only way MI could have saved us as customers would have been to nuke and repave.

That being said, now that we are comfortable with what Casper can do with iOS, we have started looking at what it can do with OS X devices. Mobile Iron can't TOUCH Casper Suite in that category.

Not to mention JAMF Nation is Casper's online user community, which is loaded with thousands of people who have been running Casper for years, and are very eager to assist new users like me. Top it all off with Casper training and their annual user conference, and you see very quickly that the resources JAMF throws into the solution can't be beaten.

All in all, Casper is pretty amazing.
