Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition
Transparent data protection for smartphones and tablets.
Please Call for Pricing!
Today employees, partners and vendors alike work any time, anywhere, using any device to download and share files. Personally owned smartphones and tablets, like desktops and laptops, have become a standard work tool. Accordingly, most organizations are embracing the bring your own device movement, recognizing it helps to both reduce equipment costs and increase productivity.
But without proper encryption and password enforcement, data accessed on mobile devices, whether from a corporate server or a public cloud, is unprotected. If the device is lost or stolen, or if data is accessed through an open wireless hotspot, it could be hijacked, putting companies in jeopardy of a security breach and compliance violations. IT teams are struggling to strike a balance between protecting data and impeding worker productivity by restricting data access.
Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition helps to put IT back in control of data security by enabling you to protect data accessed on smartphones and tablets running iOS or Android operating systems. Agentless and easy to deploy, the solution is fully integrated with the Dell Data Protection | Enterprise Edition platform. Through Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition, IT can easily inspect, install, or remove profiles, remove passcodes and conduct remote wipes, all from a single platform.
Comprehensive protection for enhanced end user productivity
By using the native security features available on iOS and Android platforms, Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition reduces the need for additional security software on the device, simplifying support and enabling easy on-boarding with less impact to the end user experience. Automatic association of devices with users further minimizes disruption to workflow.
Secure iOS Devices
Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition enables administrators to enforce policies at the user level and commands at the device level. Device management commands are sent to managed iPhone and iPad devices via the Apple Push Notification Service (APNS). Policies, restrictions and commands are implemented in iOS as a configuration profile, which are deployed over-the-air.
Secure Android Devices
Managed through the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) protocol, Android mobile device protection lets you set and enforce policies at the user level and commands at the device level. Device management commands are sent and enforced on Android devices via Exchange ActiveSync. Allow, block and remote wipe commands are deployed over-the-air.

Simplified management and compliance
Because Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition is centrally managed via the DDP | Enterprise Edition Console, it helps to increase IT visibility and control, greatly reducing the compliance workload and the risk of a data breach. You can easily set policies and restrictions across the enterprise, and immediately execute commands like Remote Wipe, so you can quickly respond to and limit the scope of a data leak. Furthermore, automatic discovery of unenrolled devices and centralized management and reporting helps keep corporate data secure while enabling users to work uninterrupted.
Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition allows you to:
- Set Policies and Restrictions - Centrally manage policy across the enterprise, such as requiring a PIN or disabling backups
- Execute Commands - Quickly issue commands, such as Remote Wipe and Reset Passcode
- Discover Devices - Automatically detect unenrolled devices
- Block Devices - Remove a device’s access to Exchange server if it is lost or stolen, or must be deprovisioned
- Compile Compliance Reports - Use existing templates or create custom compliance reports to meet auditor requirements
Protect cloud storage data
The pervasiveness of file sharing on public clouds makes it imperative to protect mobile devices as well, since end users commonly access cloud files via smartphones and tablets. Dell Data Protection | Mobile Edition was designed to work in tandem with Dell Data Protection | Cloud Edition, which transparently encrypts data as it moves into and out of public cloud storage. When used together, the solutions work seamlessly to allow end users to use public clouds as they always have, without interruption, while enabling companies to ensure their sensitive data stays secure and compliant.
