"We've found that the product is quite stable."
"The use and management of our portal is easy."
"Internal applications, data, and folders are published on enrolled mobile devices in a secure way without publishing any of the resources over the internet."
"We have applied MFA so that no one can bypass this security and the users/employees can access their resources very easily, securely, and seamlessly."
"Harmony Mobile presents many innovative features."
"The best thing about the product is that it is transparent and does not impact the users."
"The easy navigation of the admin portal is a welcome change to how some other admin portals are not very user-friendly."
"Network protection, OS protection, application protection, and file protection are valuable. It is also easy to implement and manage."
"One valuable feature is the ability to provide a secure environment. Another is the kiosk mode where MaaS360 can be used over a tablet or mobile device to ensure that a single application is used."
"The solution is quite stable."
"MaaS can force people to lock their phones. Not everyone likes having a PIN and other security features on their phones, but this sets a requirement that you can't get your emails unless you have a PIN on your phone. That was a good feature, and we were able to easily increase the PIN from four digits to six digits. Overall, it was pretty user-friendly."
"The most valuable features are mobile device management and security (which allows you to quarantine infected devices)."
"Maas360 uses distribution groups to deploy apps, which makes it a bit easier than, for example, Intune."
"Remote enablement feature and access to internal resources on the VPN."
"My customers value the ability to control all their devices from a central point in IBM MaaS360."
"The most valuable feature is that it's comprehensive - it covers mobile devices and laptops in one package."
"The deployment in the Android system is very simple but in the case of iOS, it is more complicated so the users require attention from our CAU."
"It could expand the functionalities to, in addition to security functionality, incorporate Mobile Device Management (MDM) functionalities such as remote device management, administration of installed applications, etc."
"Harmony has more support for Android OS as opposed to iOS. You need a third-party MDM solution to integrate with iOS. If you don't have an MDM, your app can't scan on an iOS device. The solution can scan everything on Android. It sees all your apps."
"Some configuration options inside the management console are a little confusing because the interface is not always user-friendly."
"The admin portal is slightly clunky and sometimes shows a different status than what the device is actually doing."
"The only language that is available is English."
"Maybe the support issue could improve over time."
"I would like to see management and remote administration functions in the same portal."
"We had a problem with Microsoft computers. If you downloaded emails on a Microsoft Windows Surface PC, that would also require a license. The Outlook application didn't look great for us on a PC."
"IBM MaaS360 can improve the information provided for DLP control. Some of our customers would benefit from this."
"When we have MaaS360 installed on smartphones, it consumes the battery of the device at a much faster pace. This is one of the areas of improvement that I would like to highlight. We have also observed that in the contact list, a lot of duplication is happening. A single contact is duplicated three or four times, which also consumes more memory resources. If they can work on improving it for these aspects, it will have a more positive impact not only on the way the application is being consumed by the user but also on user satisfaction. A lot of new features are being deployed or rolled out by companies that are competitors of IBM MaaS360. IBM will have to ensure that all those features are on board so that we have a complete suite of features in the platform, rather than deploying multiple diverse solutions to cater to the requirements of our customers."
"The price could be lower."
"The user interface could definitely use some improvement."
"The user experience really isn't so good."
"The interface is clunky and the layout is a bit outdated. Also, I don't think MaaS360 has as many features as Intune. It doesn't integrate with Office as seamlessly as Intune does, which isn't surprising, given that Intune and Office are Microsoft products."
"IBM MaaS360 can improve the location reporter. There is a 15-minute delay and this does not allow for any usefulness."
