IBM MaaS360 Valuable Features

The most valuable features are remote enablement and access to my intranet resources, without depending on the VPN.

Due to integration with Apple DEP and Android Enterprise we don't need to configure each device manually or even share a link, it is ready the moment the user has access to the device.

We also have some internal websites that would normally need VPN to access from the public network, but we have set up a gateway that lets us connect to these internal resources  using the secure browser that's part of the license which is a very significant cost saving in the current times.

All features that we have deployed are useful. We do access office emails on our smartphones, and we have complete sync with Active Directory. Our calendar also gets synced in the MaaS360 application. 

We also ensure that the data from these official applications is not being misused by any of the employees. We have disabled cut, copy, paste, and all such features. It ensures that all the official data that our employees have on their smartphones is secure. Security is the paramount feature that we value in this product.

I really value the ease of implementation. Within a couple of days you can quickly roll out several hundred devices. We didn't need more than that, but I'm convinced that it's possible and that it wouldn't matter if the device is not an iOS or a Windows 10 device. Those operating systems are possible and available within MaaS. The product provides basic security and when you need more, it's fairly easy to bring that in with third parties or a single sign-on MFA. That kind of thing is in place and available for the company.

The interface is very user-friendly. You just click and go. It's quite different from something you would get on Intune. I don't like that interface, the Microsoft interface is more suited to technical people.

Maas360 uses distribution groups to deploy apps, which makes it a bit easier than, for example, Intune.

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. We make sure at the organization level that a device is not misused.

It is stable, scalable, and easy to install.

Mobility Strategist at a retailer with 10,001+ employees

The most important aspect of the solution is the fact that the platform is unified, and that it covers all the mobility services - that includes not only the MDM components or services. The solution includes mobile application management in order to have an application catalog, which is very helpful. In this catalog, we can synchronize and install applications with ease. Within the MDM component, there's mobile set management, in order to incorporate security. 

The deployment itself was quite easy.

The stability has been very reliable.

We've found the scalability to be very good.

The price of the solution is quite good.

We've found the interface to be pretty good overall. The dashboards are quite good.

You can customize the solution easily.

Assistant til konsernregnskapssjef & IT integrasjonsansvarlig at a energy/utilities company with 51-200 employees

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 feature is the fact that we can find a lost device or shut the device down and wipe it, which is good for HIPAA.

The ability to send an iPad out to someone and have them auto-provision it when they are out in the field is fantastic. We don't have to have it all configured before we ship it. This is probably the biggest value add.

For the moment, we utilize the solution solely for iPads, although we also meet the requirements to satisfy our desire to use it for laptops. There are plans for its use with BYOD and for Intunes. The feasibility and cost per user is worthy of examination.
