Your Mobility Management and Security Solution tools just got a whole lot 

At the end of 2014, IBM acquired Fiberlink Communications, creators of 
MaaS360, one of the industry's leading mobile management and security 
solutions.  On June 6, 2014, Gartner positioned IBM MaaS360 as a Leader in 
the Enterprise Mobility Management Suites Magic Quadrant (
https://ibm.biz/BdR5WT).  Today we are announcing that the IBM MaaS360 
On-Premises solution is now available.

With the IBM MaaS360 solution, you now have access to many more 
industry-leading capabilities to secure and manage mobile devices 
accessing your corporate network, documents and apps, including: Mobile 
Device Management, Mobile Application Management, Mobile Application 
Security including a full dual persona container, a PIM (Personal 
Information Management) Container with Secure Mail, Calendar, Contacts and 
Documents, Secure Document Sharing / Sync and Edit, Mobile Expense 
Management, and much more...

And the good news is that as an IBM Endpoint Manager for Mobile Devices 
client, you are entitled to this industry leading solution!  IEM for 
Mobile Devices clients are now entitled to the IBM MaaS360 Advanced Mobile 
Management Suite, which includes Mobile Device Management, Mobile 
Application Management and Mobile Expense Management, through the recently 
announced IBM MaaS360 On-Premises solution.  Clients can download the IBM 
MaaS360 solution through Passport Advantage (link?)

We also announce today that IBM Endpoint Manager for Mobile Devices is 
going End of Marketing on October 10th, 2014, as IBM MaaS360 is our 
strategic solution for Mobile Management and Security, and therefore will 
be replacing IEM for Mobile Devices. 

Finally, on May 22, 2014, Gartner named IBM as a Leader in their Magic 
Quadrant for Client Management Tools. IBM Endpoint Manager and MaaS360 
solutions combine to give you a holistic way of securely managing both 
fixed and mobile endpoints. This ability to seamlessly manage mobile 
diversity will become increasingly important as organizations of all sizes 
continue to provide employees with more access to mobile applications, 
documents and devices.  As a reminder to a recent update, clients looking 
for Unified UI and Reporting between IEM and MaaS360 can also download the 
recent content enabled for all IEM clients providing a unified asset view, 
unified reporting, and a detailed single asset view for mobile devices in 
the IEM console.

IBM MaaS360, now available as an On-Premises solution, also offers an 
industry-leading SaaS deployment option with attractive incentives.  If 
you are interested in trying or moving to SaaS, contact your IBM sales
