Case study: IBM CIO Office

The IBM CIO Office drives change, innovation and efficiency within the enterprise by helping ensure that the company's IT operations are responsive, resilient and secure enough to keep pace with ongoing changes in technology and business requirements.

Advancing mobile device securityThe CIO Office manages about one hundred-thousand IBM employees' smartphones and tablets. Not only must it provide these employees with mobile flexibility, it also needs to ensure that these mobile device assets are adequately protected. Achieving these objectives required the office to deliver more than basic mobile device management; it needed to provide advanced mobile application and access security as well as expanded levels of mobile capabilities. Moreover, the CIO Office wanted to deploy these capabilities to 90,000 devices within one month, at a low cost.
