MobileIron’s Product Expansion

During the quarter, MobileIron added Authenticator to its Access cloud security solution. Authenticator is a new mobile application that allows organizations to verify a user’s identity while using the phone as a second authentication factor. The Authenticator replaces traditional hardware and software token devices with the user’s mobile device. By adding the Authenticator, MobileIron Access cloud security solution has been able to integrate muti-factor authentication (MFA) policies into its security workflow.
