Orange launches Secure Mobility solution for businesses


Service aimed at providing security on business and employee-owned mobile devices 

Orange has launched Secure Mobility, a security solution for the remote management of data on business and employee-owned mobiles.

Secure Mobility works on multiple devices and operating systems including iOS and Android. It enables users to remotely set-up and manage business applications on devices, enforce security policies and lock and wipe a handset if it goes missing.

The solution fully integrates into Microsoft Exchange and enables businesses to control user authentication and content encryption, meaning only authorised and trusted parties can access their network.

The solution is available directly from Orange for business customers (medium, corporate, large and multinational accounts). It is sold in a ‘pay-as-you-grow’ model with license bundles, according to the need of the customer.

Everything Everywhere business director Max Taylor said: “Smartphones and tablets might be empowering businesses and their employees, but they are also generating new management and security challenges for IT teams who are under mounting pressure to ensure the security of a growing mobile fleet and the data it is being used to access.

“The fact that Secure Mobility is highly scalable and has a flexible pricing structure means that data protection and device management practices can adapt with the mobile fleet, rather than lagging behind it – even if a business has a ‘bring your own device’ policy. This reduces administrative overheads and allows IT teams to spend less time managing employees’ devices and protecting their networks and more time focusing on helping the business grow.”
