Assess threat based on device and apps exposure impact the information stored, in transit and in use. You will need the vendor to confirm on the applicable capability to reduce the exposure WITH additional apps install though I stated some brief one just for a start...

Threat - Data leakage/breach, Risk - loss of information confidentiality & integrity
>MobileIron Email - Encapsulate Email apps from other personal apps, Segregate Email information from other apps access, Encryption on device and Apps VPN (using AppsTunnel) for end to end protection

Threat - Mass infection, Risk - loss of information confidentiality & integrity & Availability
>MobileIron Email - Leverage on existing device AV or protective s/w for real time malware and compromised device state (e.g. jailbroken/rooted) detection, backend content filtering based on Enterprise email exchange AV scan before sending to device, apps are pushed down from MI trusted AppStore (signed apps)

Threat - Unauthorized Access, Risk - loss of information confidentiality & integrity
 > MobileIron Email - MI agent for MDM and MAM controls for customized email apps "watch over" based on policy usage and enable audit trail for proactive monitoring on any anomalous email usage activities, strict policy include login credentials for multi-user and enforce 2FA (if available)

Threat - Loss of device or device theft, Risk - loss of information confidentiality & availability
> MobileIron Email - MI agent for MDM and MAM controls for remote wipe of apps and device for selective information stored in the device or ext storage. At all times data at rest are encrypted.
