Vodafone Idea and IBM collaborate on secure device management

Vodafone Idea Business Services (VIBS), the enterprise arm of Indian operator Vodafone Idea, has announced the launch of Vodafone Secure Device Manager (VSDM), powered by IBM Security MaaS360, a unified end-point management (UEM) system.

VSDM UEM enables trusted apps and content on any device, on-the-go, delivering mobile security for the way people work, says Vodafone Idea.

To help enable anytime and anywhere connectivity delivered through a secure environment, VSDM offers companies a wide array of functionalities like containerisation and secure access to company apps while on the go. It also provides the ability to push policies, to control access to apps while at work, and to provide content that employees need to be productive, while maintaining data security and personal privacy. 

The platform, leveraging IBM Security MaaS360, is designed to secure emails, protect devices containing company information used for automating the field sales force, and secure company data and apps in a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) scenario, all while respecting the personal privacy of the employees.

The platform can be customized to each company’s security policies with the option of different policies for different employee profiles. Among other features it also provides AI insights and contextual analytics and capabilities to proactively defend against malware and other threats. It can be used on BYOD or company owned / company paid (COCP) devices, irrespective of company policy on mobility.

VSDM is available for large enterprises, government and SMBs, with features catering to their specific business needs and policies, according to Vodafone Idea.
