Ooredoo has launched ‘Mobile Device Management’, an innovative service that enables companies to monitor all devices, content, and apps operating on the company network.
With Mobile Device Management, Ooredoo said businesses will be able to allow users access to corporate resources on their own devices, while still ensuring user privacy and the integrity of company data.
Powered by IBM MaaS360, the capabilities of the solution will allow enterprises to have their own app catalogue that presents users with approved or recommended public applications and in-house developed applications, while offering the ability to automatically push updates of those applications as they are made available.
As more and more employees in Qatar are bringing smart devices to work, and using their own phones and tablets to access company data, Ooredoo said it developed the service “to provide peace of mind” for businesses and enhance mobility.
The mobile management solution also let’s businesses provision mobile device apps and content, all from a single portal, while minimising risk to organisations, Ooredoo said. In addition, it enables employees to collaborate across multiple device platforms, which boosts productivity.

“We’ve developed our service that is powered by one of the world’s leading technology companies, IBM, so that all companies across all industries can benefit from higher employee productivity online while reducing the day-to-day risks.”
