REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/22/12 -- Zenprise®, Inc., the leader in secure Mobile Device Management (MDM), today announced that Rayonier has selected Zenprise to secure and manage a mix of corporate-owned iPhone and iPad devices as well as employee-owned iOS and Android devices.
Rayonier, a leading forest products company with a focus on forest resources, highly-purified cellulose fiber materials, and timberland, is implementing a strategic program to move IT applications and MDM to the cloud. This includes enabling a more flexible, app-centric mobile paradigm for its employees.
As part of this process, Rayonier is migrating away from its BlackBerry Enterprise Server to a combination of supported mobile devices and a cloud-based MDM solution. Before selecting an MDM solution, Rayonier evaluated three MDM solutions ultimately selecting Zencloud from Zenprise.
"At the end of the day, it comes down to ease of implementation, ease of administration, how quickly I can train my team on the solution, and how comfortable I feel with sales and support," said Adam Rasner, IT director for Rayonier. "My comfort level with Zenprise across all of these was very high."
The overall objective of Rayonier's IT group is to empower its employees to be more productive on-the-go while maintaining strong security for its devices, network, applications, and data. Near-term, Rayonier is focused on providing management and security for executives, department heads, mill managers, and IT professionals on their iPhones and iPads. From a security perspective, they need to track, lock, and wipe devices in the event of loss, theft, or employee departure.
Rayonier is also rolling out corporate email, provisioning enterprise resources such as WiFi and VPN, and pushing apps like Evernote and Docs2Go. In addition, they are also enabling a high-quality, secure experience for web-based applications such as mill reporting so that a manager could, for example, get up-to-the minute pulp production volumes for a given mill.
"Rayonier's leadership and innovation extends beyond its forest products to all aspects of its business, including IT. This is evidenced by the way they are using mobile devices and applications to optimize their operations," said Ahmed Datoo, Zenprise CMO. "With Zencloud, Rayonier can provide employees with access to corporate information from corporate and employee-owned devices with the security and management capabilities required. And because of Zencloud's highly-available architecture, they can do so without impacting the user experience."
Since implementing Zencloud, Rayonier is now able to support corporate-issued as well as a smattering of personally-owned mobile devices while implementing its strategy to move applications and IT operations to the cloud. Zencloud enables Rayonier's IT department to:
- Configure settings prior to rolling out corporate email to devices
- Set WiFi policies and automate WiFi key changes to reduce help desk calls
- Manage mobile app purchases through the Apple App Store
- Push mobile apps and VPN profiles, including Cisco AnyConnect, to devices
- Protect corporate data and support its mobile policy
