McAfee and 2e2 Launch Cloud-Based Mobile Device Management Solution Designed for Service Providers
SANTA CLARA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
McAfee (News - Alert) and 2e2 have today announced a partnership to globally deliver
McAfee® Enterprise Mobility Manager (McAfee EMM™) software to service
providers and large enterprises as a cloud-based managed service.
Partnering with 2e2, McAfee will be delivering cloud-based access to
highly-scalable, customizable mobile device management and security
solutions to large and small commercial customers through Telcos and
"Threats to smartphones are becoming more common and the need to secure
mobile devices has never been more important," said Chris Kenworthy,
senior vice president at McAfee. "IT security operations want to adopt
new technologies and support new mobile platforms, operating systems and
architectures, while maintaining corporate security and compliance. We
now have a comprehensive cloud-based managed service offering for
Service Providers and corporate customers who can't or don't want to
build out their own mobile management and security infrastructure."
McAfee EMM software combines secure mobile application management,
anti-malware, strong authentication, high-availability, a scalable
architecture and compliance reporting in a seamless system. It enables
companies to leverage the value of mobile, by implementing extended
endpoint policies and compliance management, while protecting the
corporate network from growing threats from personal mobile devices.
With the 2e2 partnership, McAfee can now offer its McAfee EMM software
solution via a clud-based solution so end-user customers can be up and
running quickly with a minimum of up-front architectural work and cost.
"There has been explosive growth in mobile devices across the enterprise
over the last few years. This has resulted in an ever increasing need to
secure a wide range of mobile devices including iPhones, tablets,
Android (News - Alert) and Windows devices," commented Nathan Marke, CTO at 2e2.
"Concerns around cyber-security continue to rise, and, for many
organisations, finding the time and budget to deploy an on-premise
solution has been difficult. By taking McAfee's solution and
transforming it into a managed cloud-based service we can now quickly
and cost-effectively provision and secure mobile devices with no
disruption to an organization's existing IT infrastructure."
