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

Using this solution has made things more convenient. Earlier, we had to depend a lot more on IT to find and resolve our issues.

The most valuable feature is the fact that we can find a lost device or shut the device down and wipe it 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.

Our organization researched both Microsoft Intune and IBM MaaS360 when considering the type of endpoint security tool that we wanted. Ultimately we decided to choose IBM MaaS360 to secure and manage our endpoints. IBM MaaS360 is a platform that approaches endpoint management from a user-oriented point of view. Its user interface is designed for use by those who are not necessarily technologically savvy. You can click through the interface screens and manage the program effectively. Microsoft Intune is a software solution that allows companies to practice remote endpoint management and security from a single unified dashboard, which offers great value. However, there are too many hyperlinks needed to navigate the screen. There is simply too much technical knowledge required to manage it, which means that the average employee would not be able to use it without special training. IBM MaaS360 can remotely enable, track, wipe, shutdown, or troubleshoot any device that is connected to it from anywhere in the world. You can send someone out into the field without a fully configured device and once they activate the program, it will handle the configuration in the field. Lost devices are now something that companies no longer have to be concerned with. Devices are now trackable from any location. Additionally, if a device is misplaced or is no longer needed, it can be remotely wiped or shut down. This can remove data that could be exploited or prevent the usage of devices by unauthorized parties. IBM MaaS360’s cognitive unified endpoint management allows users to remotely identify whether issues can be solved remotely or whether it requires an in-person examination of the device in question. Microsoft Intune also allows for a limited degree of remote usage. As long as the device is accessible, users of Microsoft Intune can log in and perform remote troubleshooting to solve issues that may arise. Administrators can also remotely limit the type of websites that employees can access on a connected device. IBM MaaS360’s remote capabilities surpass Microsoft Intune’s,which is a large part of the reason that we chose it. Conclusion: While both Microsoft Intune and IBM MaaS360 offer robust services, the intuitive nature of IBM MaaS360 gives it a big advantage over the competition. Additionally, IBM MaaS360’s remote capabilities are far more versatile than anything that Microsoft Intune can offer.

For Mobile Apps, it isn't the developer that causes the issue, it's the operating environment in which those apps operate in. That's where the security blind spot is. So if a company has a good MDM/EMM solution but also have consumer-facing or public-facing mobile apps, how can they control what happens to their app on the unmanaged devices of their customers? They don't know if that customer has a very old version smartphone, is a few software updates behind, or leaves it alone for periods of time in public places. Those are what hackers look for. We are seeing a lot of breaches happening because of this lack of control. Using a layered security solution approach will help alleviate some of these concerns.
