MobileIron offers UEM integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator to deliver security capabilities to mobile endpoints

MobileIron announced Wednesday that it has delivered technical integration of MobileIron with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO), enabling common customers to extend existing security policies to mobile endpoints. MobileIron is the initial unified endpoint management (UEM) solution to offer this integration.

Organizations rely on McAfee ePO to define and monitor their endpoint security policies. As a member of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA), MobileIron extends that visibility to increasingly pervasive mobile devices running Android and iOS. As a result of the MobileIron integration, ePO admins are able to select the device attributes they need to monitor to ensure their fleets comply with security policies.

With the purchase of McAfee and MobileIron products, admins also have the ability to initiate mobile device actions such as “force check-in” and “wipe” directly from the ePO console so that Security Operations Center staff can respond to incidents directly.

Finally, the MobileIron extension for ePO can publish mobile endpoint events to the Data Exchange Layer (DXL) fabric so that other McAfee SIA participants can utilize the data, as well.

“MobileIron believes in the importance of ecosystems and integrating seamlessly with best-of-breed enterprise security infrastructure, like McAfee ePO,” said Ojas Rege, chief strategy officer, MobileIron. “As a result of our participation in the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance, our mutual customers can now leverage the rich mobile security data set of MobileIron with the power of McAfee ePO.”

“McAfee continues to innovate organically and by partnering to enhance our customers’ security outcome,” said D.J. Long, vice president of strategic business development, McAfee. “MobileIron interoperates with the recently announced McAfee MVISIONportfolio, providing common customers with the tools needed to manage their multi-vendor security environments. Additionally, the certified integration with MobileIron allows customers to extend the reach of ePO implementations to mobile endpoints.”

Last month, MobileIron announced the addition of MobileIron Authenticator to its comprehensive MobileIron Access cloud security solution. MobileIron Authenticator is a new mobile application that allows organizations to verify a user’s identity using the phone as a second factor of authentication.

MobileIron Authenticator is differentiated from existing MFA solutions because it provides a one-touch set-up process for end users, leverages smartphones instead of hardware tokens, and integrates MFA into a comprehensive security workflow that establishes user trust, as well as device and app trust.
