Global technology company, Microsoft announced on Monday, 29 July 2019, a plan to link its Enterprise Mobility Management solution, Intune, with the eSIM Device Enablement Service (eDES) from G+D Mobile Security.
This collaboration is said to give IT departments the ability to centrally manage the mobile connections of eSIM-enabled end devices belonging to their companies.
Mobile contracts for Windows devices with eSIM can be activated, modified and managed online by IT departments without burdening employees with these processes. By eliminating manual processes for eSIM connectivity through this ‘zero-touch’ management, companies can expect to save costs and shorten the time to deploy new mobile contracts.
G+D Mobile Security presented eDES to the public for the first time at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona. The company claims the service is a holistic solution for organisations that want to benefit from fully digitised mobile device management and also offers mobile operators the opportunity to monetise corporate solutions.
“G+D Mobile Security is excited to extend our eDES solution to support Microsoft Windows customers to ensure their enterprise connectivity is seamless and transparent”, says Edgar Salib, Head of G+D Mobile Security in the Americas. “Our best-in-class features for eSIM device enablement are a great fit with the support structure for Microsoft.”
Shai Guday, Partner Group Program Manager at Microsoft says, “We are always excited to see more customers taking advantage of eSIM capabilities on Windows devices. G+D Mobile Security’s eDES solution makes access to data connectivity more available to the enterprise, providing corporate IT with the ability to seamlessly deliver connectivity for their enterprise users.”
The solution is available for commercial deployment from August 2019.
