IBM MaaS360 gives us the ability to remote wipe, control, and block code from models and features we do not want on devices we have. We only want proprietary applications operating on our devices.

We are using IBM MaaS360 to manage applications and to control some functions in mobile phones. We do mobile device tests and control the applications on mobile devices.

In this scenario, we only used MaaS for telephones, not computers. We used the MaaS360 IBM mobile management tool to protect email accounts on phones, ensuring they were compliant.

A general use case would be providing a secure environment for accessing an organization's email. The compartmentalization that MaaS360 provides allows the organization to make sure that the information remains secure.

We have lots of applications deployed on our employees' smartphones. To ensure secure access of these applications from these smartphones, we have deployed an MDM solution from IBM, and we have done containerization on these smartphones. A container has been created, and all applications that are being used for the official purpose are put into that container. All security policies, as per our company guidelines, are forced on that container. All personal applications that our employees have on their smartphones are outside this container, and they remain untouched. We have basically created a kind of partition between professional life applications and personal life applications on the smartphones of our employees.

We have a few use cases. Firstly, we are using the solution for incorporating the licenses. We also use it for smaller devices or to allow an inventory of devices to have access. We also use the solution for our stores in our business. We need to protect our information while being able to deploy apps and business applications, specifically for our departments.

We primarily use the solution for our organization's phones and iPads. We use the solution for locking down the phone. If it gets lost or stolen, we deploy apps. We have an internal app that will be deployed. It's connected to Apple DEP VPP, and we do document deployments through it as well.

We have provided IBM MaaS360 to all of our mobile users, approximately one year ago. I have also been working to reseller IBM services, such as this one, for almost the past two years. This product is primarily used for data loss prevention (DLP).

We use IBM MaaS360 for the iPads of our field sales reps. We use it to ensure that they are only using authorized apps, and these apps are maintained and have the latest version.

The primary use case for us is to bring down enrollment and to make it more flexible for the company. The solution is good for small to large enterprise organizations. We have 100,000 devices that have the solution installed. I'm an engineer.

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.
