Citadele banka & MobileIron
When Citadele Banka started to produce the BYOD program, Guntars Andersons, Head of Information Department, revealed the need to provide employees with easy-to-use mobile services without compromising the security of the bank’s data. “At our bank, employees are free to choose their own device for work. Some of us prefer iOS, others – Android based phones. That means we are confronted with a wide range of manufacturers and devices, “said Anderson, Citadele Banka, which began more than a year ago exploring solutions that could safely deliver emails and data to both internal and external networks. For security of data and mobile IT part emphasis on ease of use, Bank Citadele chose MobileIron in cooperation with Data Security Solutions (complex IT security system integrator) and headtechnology Baltics (Baltic IT security competence center). MobileIron also looked at solutions offered by other suppliers. “It was important for us to receive quality local support provided by Data Security Solutions Ltd. The MobileIron Docs @ Work feature, which eliminates data leaks from email attachments, is also a great impression. We have introduced a strict constraint that allows attachments to only open in MobileIron’s secure environment. “For the next step in the Mobile First development plan, Citadele Bank has set up support for third-party applications, thus mobilizing core business processes and increasing employee productivity.
