IBM Australia has hired MobileIron's former Asia-Pacific head of sales to run ANZ sales for Big Blue's mobile group, MaaS360.
Tim Youm started in the newly created position on 4 January.
“IBM’s MaaS360 is the most robust cloud-based mobility management platform for mobile and PC, offering solutions to help securely mobilise the workforce and addresses concerns around unified device management, application and content access and mobile threat management," he told CRN.
“I truly believe it is the answer to providing an easier and more effective way to enable enterprise mobility for both the IT community and end users. IBM business partners have a real opportunity in ANZ to close the gap and address those key challenges being seen and I am passionate about helping drive this forward with our IBM business partners in 2016, ” said Youm.
IBM MaaS360 is an enterprise mobility management solution that aims to make working in the mobile world simple and safe.
Previously known as Fiberlink’s MaaS360 cloud-based offerings, the solution was acquired by IBM and rebranded into IBM MaaS360 for an undisclosed amount in 2013.
