Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security introduces eSIM Device Enablement Service (eDES): a holistic solution for mobile network operators’ (MNOs) to monetize enterprise solutions and for Enterprise customers to benefit from a fully digitalized mobile device management (MDM). This World class leadership and expertise in eSIM management combines with business/operational support systems from the industry to facilitate real-time activation of eSIM capable devices.

Through a cooperation with Swisscom and MobileIron, eDES enables seamless mobile connectivity management for Enterprises. With eDES, Swisscom Enterprise customers who use MobileIron MDM will be able to deploy and manage their employees’ mobile subscriptions online. eDES paves the way for user-friendly “zero touch” subscription downloads, decreases enterprise costs by eliminating manual processes and reduces time to activate new subscriptions.

“The eDES solution from G+D Mobile Security integrates seamlessly with MobileIron’s enterprise device management suite,” said Adrian Bolliger, VP, Head of Mobile Business Solutions of Swisscom, “thus minimizing the investment and impact on existing MNO back-office systems and processes. With this solution, we are able to deliver a full suite of online eSIM lifecycle management features, including real-time activation, changes and procurement for our Enterprise customers.”

Brian Foster, SVP of Product Management, MobileIron added “Existing Swisscom Enterprise customers using MobileIron will be able to leverage the new functionality afforded by eDES transparently and seamlessly. Existing MobileIron customers can now decrease cost and improve control using a fully digitalized user and device management by deploying eSIMs as IT assets with their existing MDM solutions.”
