Now Organizations Can Automatically Disable Wireless Devices in No-Phone Zones
PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inpixon (INPX), a leading indoor positioning and data analytics company, today announced the release of the Indoor Positioning Analytics (IPA) Connector for IBM® MaaS360® with Watson™. The integration enables joint customers of IBM MaaS360 and Inpixon IPA to enforce mobile device security policies based on a wireless device's specific location in a building. The connector is available in the IBM Security App Exchange at https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/hub/?q=inpixon.
MaaS360 Mobile Device Management (MDM) enables IT organizations to secure, manage and monitor any corporate- or employee-owned mobile device. The solution allows companies to configure the device with corporate connectivity settings, email profiles and device-specific restrictions; to encrypt company information; to remotely wipe lost devices; and more.
The Inpixon IPA Connector for MaaS360 adds unique capabilities to the IBM solution. Specifically, the Inpixon IPA Connector for MaaS360 enables MDM administrators to utilize multiple geo-fenced zones on a facility floor plan. As a wireless device moves throughout the office environment, the Inpixon IPA Connector sends the phone's location to MaaS360, allowing MaaS360 to push out location-specific policies. The most common use case is to disable a phone's camera, audio recorder and transmission functions while in a high security, no-cell-phones zone. This capability helps to prevent recording of confidential conversations, theft of intellectual property, and transmission/reception of voice and data while in the zone.
"Cybersecurity situation awareness and wireless intrusion detection are key value propositions Inpixon IPA delivers out of the box," noted Soumya Das, COO of Inpixon. "When used in conjunction with MaaS360, customers are able to enhance their mobile security capabilities. We're excited to make the Inpixon Indoor Positioning Analytics integration available to MaaS360 global customers through the IBM Security App Exchange."
“IBM believes in the importance of ecosystems and integrating seamlessly with best-of-breed enterprise security infrastructure, like Inpixon,” said Charles Brown, Sr. Offering Manager, IBM. “Including the Inpixon IPA Connector for MaaS360 in the IBM Security App Exchange allows our mutual customers to leverage the rich mobile security data set of MaaS360 with the power of Inpixon IPA.”
