The New Zealand Government selected Mobile Mentor to its Telecommunications-as-a-Service (TaaS) supplier panel to provide the government with mobile security solutions and managed mobility services.

Mobile Mentor will provide software and services for mobile device management (MDM), mobile policy management, and mobile threat management. Threat management is the automatic detection, review, and remediation of malicious apps via an app reputation scanning engine that is integrated into the MDM platform. The service also includes daily security vulnerability monitoring and recommendations for action.

The managed mobility services include a specialist 24x7 mobile service desk, mobile asset management, mobile expense management, and app management. App management is the distribution, support, and lifecycle management of enterprise apps.

Mobile Mentor has extended its long-term partnerships with AirWatch and Revera for the security software and hosting services to meet the stringent security requirements required for government.

These services help government agencies ensure that their environment is secure in the face of an ever-changing mobile threat landscape.
