Options, the leading private financial cloud provider for the global capital markets industry, has today announced that it has deployed MobileIron, the market leader in security and management for mobile apps, documents, and devices, to the Options PIPE platform.



As a result, the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) firm will provide clients with a complete mobile device management solution, allowing firms in the financial services industry embrace smartphone and tablet technology, including the growing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend.
