- Secures
smartphones and tablets for international legal workforce

International legal practice, href="">Norton Rose Group, has
deployed MobileIron to
enable the secure adoption of employee and corporate-owned
smartphone and tablet devices into its enterprise environment. The
solution from MobileIron ensures that every member of the practice
has the same, secure and compliant access to corporate email and
information whilst on the road, and supports a broader strategy to
create an innovative, collaborative working environment.

Working with IT partner href="">Esselar, experts in next
generation remote working and web security, Norton Rose identified
that MobileIron could deliver the access, security and management
features they needed, without changing the native user

Vlad Botic, Technology Innovation Manager at Norton Rose Group,
comments: “MobileIron had several clear advantages. We have the
security and management features we needed in a platform that also
preserved the user experience. All new devices were going to be
employee-owned so it was also important to have a way to draw a
line between personal and corporate data.”

MobileIron supports a multi-OS environment, enabling Norton Rose
to manage both its employee-owned devices as well as its
corporate-owned BlackBerrys from one console. MobileIron’s
Enterprise App Storefront also enables IT to push mobile apps to
employees, facilitating the discovery and delivery of important
business tools.

Norton Rose and Esselar began the project for iPad users, easily
recruiting employees who were desperate to get corporate network
access on their devices.  Norton Rose will move to a phased
migration across five regional hubs in Dubai, Hong Kong, Frankfurt,
Paris and Singapore.

“As we roll out MobileIron internationally, the ability to
finely tune policy settings will be essential,” said Botic.
“Compliance regulations vary widely from country to country. With
MobileIron, we can provide each region with the basic platform and
then let them localise it, deploying the policies they need to
comply with local regulations. User reaction to the initial
deployment has been extremely positive. Employees feel more
connected and it is easier to accomplish what needs to be done when
working remotely.”

The mobile device management solution was part of Norton Rose’s
bigger effort to create an innovative, collaborative working
environment. The IT efforts have been accompanied by a cultural
benefit, allowing lawyers to more easily look beyond their
immediate offices to find the people with the expertise to help
them, regardless of their location in the world.

“MobileIron is helping us become a technology innovator. Where
other practices have barely tested devices other than BlackBerry,
we have quickly put the infrastructure in place to welcome other
operating systems and employee-owned devices,” said Botic. “And our
lawyers are delighted - and more productive.”
