Perimeter E-Security Announces Cloud Mobile Device Management

Cloud MDM also features a unique bring-your-own-device kit

MILFORD, Conn., Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Perimeter E-Security, the leading provider of secure cloud services, today announced that it has added Mobile Device Management (MDM) technology to its broad portfolio of secure messaging and network security services. With Perimeter's new Cloud MDM service, CIOs can protect company data on all employee-owned and company-issued smartphones and tablets for best-in-class security and compliance. Cloud MDM also features a unique Bring-Your-Own-Device Kit to help companies of all sizes successfully manage the risks associated with employee-owned devices.

"Formal BYOD programs are a relatively new but fast-growing phenomenon. In 2009, it was typical to see no BYOD program whatsoever in business, even though there has always been a substantial amount of 'stealth' use of personal devices. But now, formal programs supported by IT are rapidly gaining steam. In a 2011 study, we found that, on average, U.S. CIOs expect 38% of their workforce to use personal devices at work by the end of 2012." [Gartner, "Bring Your Own Device:

New Opportunities, New Challenges," David A. Willis, August 16, 2012.]

Perimeter's Cloud MDM service features industry-leading technology powered by AirWatch LLC, best practice security policies and complete integration with Perimeter email and other services. Company IT departments can enforce corporate policy across multiple device types, push configuration profiles and security policies, manage mobile applications, reduce the cost and effort of device deployments, increase IT efficiencies and response times and remotely wipe lost or stolen devices.

"Enterprise CIOs want to take advantage of new mobile opportunities, but unlike desktop computing, with mobile, CIOs must navigate a minefield. Diverse operating systems, hundreds of devices of suspect provenance, privacy concerns and new ownership models make it impossible to know how to keep company data secure," said Andrew Jaquith, CTO, Perimeter E-Security. "Perimeter's new Cloud MDM simplifies the complex security and policy choices enterprises must make.

Instead of giving customers a 'me-too' technology solution that leaves the messy security, policy and privacy details up them, Cloud MDM provides a prescriptive solution that includes zero-configuration best practice security policies, a BYOD Kit, privacy controls and complete email integration right out of the box.

We've brought everything we've learned in more than 15 years of managing hundreds of thousands of mobile devices to Cloud MDM. With our service, companies can secure all of their mobile devices -- and implement a safe, secure and legal BYOD program -- in just a few hours."

The most comprehensive, customizable and feature-rich MDM solution in the industry, Perimeter E-Security's Cloud MDM offers:

-- Industry-leading MDM Platform: A complete device, application and

content management solution for iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone,

Symbian and Windows Mobile devices, powered by AirWatch technology.

Hundreds of controls allow administrators to configure email, wireless,

security and other details.

-- Pre-configured Policies: Tested, best-practice data protection policies

include bi-level, standards-aligned passcode polices; encryption

enforcement; and carefully tuned device policies for Android and iOS.

Customers can use these as-is by default or extend them as needed.

-- Complete Email Integration: Fully integrated with Perimeter's hosted

Exchange service so that mobile devices are configured for email

automatically, eliminating end-user hassles and administrator support

tickets.

-- Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) Kit: Includes a Model Acceptable Use Policy

and accompanying policy guidance, co-developed in partnership with

international law firm Proskauer Rose LLP, designed to help companies

implement and manage the risks of employee-owned BYOD device programs.

-- Privacy Protection: Limits the collection of personally identifiable

information (PII), reducing privacy exposures while aligning with EU and

U.S. local, state and federal privacy laws. Administrators can wipe

devices clean, or wipe only enterprise managed data and settings, while

leaving personal information intact.

-- Compliance: Built-in passcode policies align with U.S. federal standards

for electronic authentication strength (NIST Special Publication

800-63). More than 40 standard reports allow companies to demonstrate

effective controls by reporting on how devices comply with their mobile

security policies.

-- One, Simple Bill: True, usage-based billing keeps costs predictable and

transparent.
