Cloud-based MDM Offering Provides Simple, Secure Management of Mobile Devices
London, UK, November 15, 2011 – Numara® Software, Inc., a global leader in service management, endpoint lifecycle management and mobile device management solutions for IT professionals, today announced the availability of Numara® Cloud Mobile Device Manager (MDM), part of the Numara® Cloud family of IT operations management solutions. The Numara Cloud MDM solution enables IT organisations to securely manage mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets and also provides deep integration into Numara Cloud IT Operations Management solutions.
Numara Cloud Mobile Device Manager secures companies’ most sensitive data, increases user productivity through personal mobile device access to company networks, and saves the Service Desk and IT department both time and money. With discovery and inventory, application management, and policy and security management functionality, this latest solution offers organisations the peace of mind that mobile access to critical data and networks are efficiently managed and secure from potential threats.
One of four offerings from Numara Cloud, MDM leverages the delivery platform to help companies quickly overcome IT challenges associated with mobile device proliferation and an increasingly distributed global workforce.
“As the explosion of mobile devices used by employees across the entire company continues, knowing what devices are accessing the network and from where is an absolute requirement for any IT security strategy,” said Dave Hansen, Numara CEO. “Without proper control over mobile devices, sensitive company data can be accessed, and viruses can proliferate unabated potentially jeopardising the security of the entire network. By integrating our MDM solution with Service and Endpoint Management capabilities, we leverage the cloud to not only provide tight, seamless management and security of mobile devices but also help companies reap the productivity, cost, and growth benefits associated with the globalisation of mobile devices.”
The overwhelming adoption of mobile devices is changing how business is conducted with employees demanding the same access from their smartphone or tablet as they do from their laptop. While mobile device proliferation benefits the business by increasing productivity through anytime, anywhere access to corporate networks, IT departments face a number of challenges associated with managing and securing these various devices and operating systems.
“We found that among the MDM solutions available, Numara Cloud Mobile Device Manager technology is perfectly suited to meet our customers’ needs,” said Dirk Schäfer, managing director at SEVEN PRINCIPLES (7P), a leading IT consultancy. “By implementing 7P Device Management at Deutsche Bahn, we were able to increase efficiency and security, providing them with immediate benefits, including cost reductions and increased productivity. We are assured that no matter what type of IT environment we encounter, Numara Cloud MDM technology will help us win the confidence of our customers.”
Numara Cloud Mobile Device Manager enables easy & secure registration for all mobile devices accessing the network and auto-provisions based upon a company’s specific configuration policies. IT can secure organisational data on these personal devices with strong passcode requirements, encryption, security policies, and remote device lock and data deletion. With secure access to sensitive company data and information in place, Numara Software Exchange Defender prevents unmanaged mobile devices from accessing the Microsoft® Exchange environment, eliminating the risk of critical data leaks via email. In addition, Numara Software Exchange Investigator supports ongoing risk assessment identifying the potential exposure to malicious email hackers by providing executive-level reporting, detailing the number of users and mobile devices connected to exchange. In addition, Numara Cloud MDM delivers real-time tracking for mobile device application and system usage and provides a complete picture of device access and capabilities linked to the network.
IT can easily locate and recover lost or stolen devices with GEO-Locating GPS options integrated with Google Maps™. Furthermore, by automating the management and provisioning of mobile devices, Numara Cloud MDM frees the Service Desk staff to focus on other critical tasks. Through cloud-based deployment, infrastructure requirements and the time to value are minimised as IT can quickly provision one or multiple devices anywhere via the cloud over the air. In addition, IT can troubleshoot issues more efficiently by leveraging remote control functionality, screen sharing technology, and monitoring capabilities.
Numara Cloud Mobile Device Manager supports the complete lifecycle management of mobile device deployments from inventory, configuration, and continual monitoring, to security, and backup and recovery. For additional details see http://www.numaracloud.com/products/mobile-device-management....
