Remote Monitoring and Management

Think about what’s most important in your business today – does technology come to mind?

Back-up and Disaster Recovery (BDR)

Protecting your business is important. You buy locks for the doors and insurance to make sure you’re protected while your business grows. But what about your data?

Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Quickly Deploy and Support Mobile Devices in the Enterprise

IT organisations today need visibility into and control over the mobile devices that are entering the enterprise, whether they are employee owned or provided by the corporation.

Our mobile device management solution is powered by MaaS360 by IBM, the market-leading enterprise MDM platform. It provides a comprehensive set of capabilities so you can quickly and easily configure devices for enterprise access and ensure that the corporate data stored on all devices is secure. It supports all major mobile devices including iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices, as well as Windows and OS X laptops.

Provision

Our MDM offering streamlines the device configuration process. Using SMS, email, or web for easy self-service over-the-air (OTA) enrollment makes things simpler for your employees. IT is automatically notified of any new devices on the network and can quarantine or approve them, ensuring compliance with corporate policies. OTA configuration management provides streamlined delivery and maintenance of corporate device profiles, including Wi-Fi and VPN settings.

Integrate

Through our unique plug and play approach, we make enterprise system integration easy and straightforward. With Cloud Extender, you can securely integrate with all major email, calendar and contacts platforms including Exchange, Lotus Notes, and Office 365, plus Active Directory, LDAP and any required Certificate Authorities. Robust API’s ease and simplify the integration process.

Manage

Our MDM platform provides a unified management console for all mobile devices with centralised policy and control across multiple platforms. Through automated workflows, you can discover, enroll, manage and report on all enterprise-wide devices. In addition, role-based portal rights allow you to expand or restrict access to authorised users. With default management policies for all device types, IT can simply modify an existing policy rather than creating one from scratch.

We also deliver robust cross-platform application management capabilities. MDM allows you to have your own customised App Catalog, that presents users with approved or recommended public apps and in-house developed apps–while offering the ability to automatically push app updates as they are made available.

Secure

MDM offers dynamic, end-to-end security and compliance management capabilities for your devices. Enforcing passcode policies and strong encryption keys protects sensitive business and personal data on mobile devices.

With our solution, you can configure device passcode policies to meet the highest enterprise security standards, while actively monitoring devices to ensure total compliance. Through real-time compliance enforcement, MDM can detect when users opt out of your programme, install prohibited apps or initiate SIM changes. Based on this information, you can take automated policy actions, such as messaging the user, blocking email or even wiping corporate data from the device.

Contain

Our “dual persona” approach to BYOD (bring-your-own-device) successfully separates personal and enterprise data on employee devices.  It provides a trusted workplace container for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices for a complete mobile security and productivity solution with strong data leak prevention, and consistent, seamless workflows.

Users can manage all of their emails, contacts, calendars, apps, documents and Web browsing from one dedicated workspace on their mobile devices–no matter what devices they’re using, or who owns them.

Monitor

Our intelligent dashboards deliver an interactive, graphical summary of your mobile environment operations and compliance. Integrated reporting and analytics provides high-level insights into your mobile landscape with detailed hardware and software inventory reports, plus configuration and vulnerability details. Administrators can subscribe to their favorite reports to have them emailed on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Your organisation will gain insight into the distribution of mobile devices across different operating system platforms, approval statuses, device capabilities, ownership and other useful summaries and detail. Administrators can customize their alert center to track and receive alerts about key events.

Support

Supporting mobile workers requires a 24x7 operation that’s always on. MDM provides robust help desk capabilities for support procedures such as locating a device with GPS, resetting a user’s passcode and sending a direct message to a device. The tool also includes an end user support portal that allows users to self-manage basic tasks, such as resetting passcodes, locating or wiping a lost device, etc.
