MobileIron providing mobile security for Munich Airport

Mobile enterprise security company MobileIron is providing mobile security to Munich Airport employees, says the company. The focus of the mobile initiative is to securely mobilize intranet and SAP processes.

Flughafen München, the organization responsible for managing the airport infrastructure, relies on mobile technology for mobile email and contacts, content storage and sharing, as well as mobile access to the organization’s intranet, web services, and SAP applications, as well as the Flughafen München intranet portal using MobileIron Tunnel, an app-specific VPN tunnel..

FMG wanted to enable employees to use corporate-owned as well as employee-owned mobile devices for work. Two years ago, with support from MobileIron partner Cancom in Munich, Flughafen München deployed the MobileIron platform as its Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) system for managing and securing iPhones and iPads.

A case study on the deployment is available here.
