GO!Enterprise EMM now offers enhanced functionality for ensuring mobile device compliance with corporate security policies
Palo Alto, Calif. – January 15, 2015 – Globo Plc (LSE-AIM: GBO), the global provider of complete enterprise mobility solutions and Software-as-a-Service, today announced its integration with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE). Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) is the market-leading security policy management platform that unifies and automates highly secure access control to enforce role-based access to networks and network resources; which in turn enables a simplified enterprise mobility experience.
Together, Cisco ISE and the GO!Enterprise EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) provide necessary insights into the posture of mobile devices such that IT can enforce appropriate network access policies. Overall, this enables Globo to offer an added layer of security, control and compliance to enterprise IT.
“Now, IT can embrace BYOD with grace. With this integration we are able to offer IT a zero-touch, auto-enrollment for mobile devices thereby creating a win-win situation for both employees as well as IT. Moreover, we are providing this additional security to our customers at no extra charge as part of our end-to-end solution offering,” said Mittal Parekh, senior director of product marketing & strategy at Globo.
A handful of device attributes collected by ISE from GO!Enterprise EMM for improved network access security are:
- Is the device jailbroken/rooted?
- Is the mobile device registered with GO!Enterprise EMM?
- Does the mobile device have disk encryption enabled?
- Does the device have its PIN enabled?
While Cisco ISE enforces role-based access to networks and network resources, GO!Enterprise EMM provides a number of features including policy creation, compliance management, device statistics, audit tracking, app management, file distribution and report generation, all from a single administrative console. Together, Cisco ISE and Globo’s GO!Enterprise simplify enterprise mobility.
Globo is a registered Solution Developer in the Cisco Developer Network Program. The Cisco Developer Network unites Cisco with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers.
Cisco ISE integration will be available to all Globo customers during the first quarter of 2015.
