Mobile Device Management
"Removing the stress from your IT"
Sick and tired of updating Apple devices individually? Simplify the process by implementing a centralised device management solution with assistance from the professionals at Vectra.
With the tsunami of mobile devices infiltrating the enterprise, companies will adopt Mobile Device Management technologies in record numbers over the next five years.
Mobile device management (MDM) includes software that provides the following functions: software distribution, policy management, inventory management, security management and service management for smartphones and media tablets.
Gartner predicted that through 2017, 90% of enterprises will have two or more mobile operating systems to support. In the past year, many companies have moved to Apple as their main mobile device platform, with others to follow over the next 12 to 18 months. As other operating systems like Android mobile platforms grow, MDM will need to be adopted.
The only way that IT staff can maintain control over mobile device proliferation is by separating mobile computing devices into three distinct device classes: trusted standard devices provided by the company, tolerated devices and non-supported devices. In this scenario, users are given a predefined list of supported technologies in each class, along with a budget for the projected amount that each selection consumes.
By implementing a structured support system with varied support levels, IT organisations can shield business information and enforce policies about data movement between the device and the corporate network, while enabling users to adopt the device they deem most appropriate. Organisations will find it hard to achieve an efficient mobile-support system if all platforms are not managed the same way under enterprise requirements. Like PCs, mobile devices are forms of client access devices, and the policies for them should be similar in strength but optimised for mobile usage to those governing PCs.
Seamlessly manage and control thousands of iOS and Android devices, Macs, and PCs via Vectra’s secure, browser-based dashboard. After enrollment into Vectra MDM, managed devices automatically pull security policies and settings from the cloud. Vectra MDM works on any network — even if the devices you are managing are on the road, at school, or used at home. New features, updates, and enhancements are delivered effortlessly to the dashboard from the Systems Manager. Vectra’s architecture provides the industry’s only end-to-end solution which unifies WAN, LAN, wireless LAN, and mobile devices management under a single dashboard.
