Zenprise Releases MobileManager 7.0 MDM Platform
The MobileManager MDM platform offers geo-fencing for keeping track of mobile devices and a host of other features.Mobile-device-management solution specialist Zenprise announced the release of MobileManager 7.0, the latest version of its on-premise and cloud-based MDM platform aimed at small and midsize businesses implementing bring your own device, or BYOD, initiatives. The latest edition now includes geo-fencing, which enables companies to track devices via GPS, and offers configurable dashboards that allow administrators to take one-click actions on devices such as track, notify and enroll. Geo-fencing also allows IT managers to define an approved area for the device and specify the actions to be taken if the device leaves that perimeter, which can be useful in environments like hospitals where devices containing sensitive or confidential medical data need to be tracked. In the case of theft or other mishandling, the platform allows all corporate-owned information to be wiped from the device in order to protect the data stored on the device.
Other features include the ability to configure device security, such as encryption of data at rest and passcodes; block or allow unauthorized or noncompliant devices from corporate network; selectively wipe devices, removing business apps and data while leaving personal data intact; and remotely locate and track devices. Zenprise also provides remote support and troubleshooting features, including support-to-device voice over IP and chat.
