Newmarket, 7th May 2013: COMPUTERLINKS UK, the next generation global distributor of IT security and Internet technology solutions, today announced an agreement in the UK and Germany with MobileIron, the leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents and devices. The addition of MobileIron complements COMPUTERLINKS’ existing portfolio of enterprise mobility solutions, which is designed to enable resellers to help their customers deliver useful business applications to users over enhanced mobile networks to a secure endpoint, whatever the device.
As organisations wrestle with how best to monitor, manage, optimise, secure and reduce the total cost of ownership of their mobile users, this agreement provides the channel with an opportunity to steer their customers down the path of proven capability and best practice. Channel partners will be able to enhance their own skills with COMPUTERLINKS’ established and accredited training as well as take advantage of its highly qualified pre and post sales consultants to support their own teams.
David Ellis, director of new technology and servicesatCOMPUTERLINKS, said, “Although the BYOD trend has created a great deal of buzz in the channel, it is only one part of the process. Alongside provisioning devices, IT departments still have to provide a secure infrastructure and relevant, useable applications. MobileIron adds a key capability to our offering by delivering against that exact requirement.”
Alistair Mutch, UK & Ireland Director of MobileIron said, "COMPUTERLINKS’ reputation for providing resellers with excellent pre and post sales support is well-known in the channel. When combined with its extensive UK and pan-European partner network it gives us a great starting point for responding to the exceptional demand for our products.”
The agreement forms part of COMPUTERLINKS’ wider mobile management partner strategy as MobileIron sits alongside other innovative technology vendors including GLOBO, Aerohive, Ericom, and M@D. COMPUTERLINKS’ investment in mobile technologies is designed to empower its resellers to embrace the wealth of enterprise mobile opportunities, either by offering solutions themselves or by delivering the capabilities direct to their customers.
The leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, MobileIron's mission is to enable global companies to become Mobile First organizations, embracing mobility as their primary IT platform in order to transform their businesses and increase their competitiveness.
