StarLink Highlights Expert Dynamic Enterprise Mobile Policy Enforcement

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 – Dubai, UAE

StarLink, the region's trusted security-specialized "True" Value-Added-Distributor (VAD), puts the spot light on cutting-edge and out-of-the-box integration between MobileIron and Air Patrol. As the distributor for both vendors in the region, StarLink focuses this enterprise proficiency towards Enterprise and Government customers, as well as, Channel Partners, how these two market leading vendors work together to provide dynamic enterprise mobile policy enforcement.

With the introduction of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), enterprise IT and security teams are waking up to the fact that security threats are not just coming through the firewall, but they are also coming in on smartphones and tablets. Mobile devices are dynamic, multi-function tools whose operational environments and uses are always changing, whereas, most mobile device management (MDM) tools are not built in the same way. Rather than applying the right device policies at the right time and the right place, they apply blanket everywhere, at all times rules that cannot change. These restrictions can negatively impact productivity, and can cause security risks to be overlooked as they change at the same time as the device's location.

"We are excited to have this integrated Secure Mobility story in our portfolio. With MobileIron's EMM Platform and AirPatrol's ZoneDefense technology, we now have a solution that detects any mobile device in an enterprise, tracks location, checks compliance, and provides immediate MDM policy enforcement in accordance with enterprise security standards." said Avinash Advani, VP, Business Strategy at StarLink.
