Software vendor, Kaseya, has announced its new web-based Mobile Device Management module that assists organisations in addressing solutions in terms of bring-your-own device (BYOD) trends arising in the corporate network.
The Kaseya Mobile Device Management module is part of an integrated and automated IT System Management (ITSM) solution that manages work personal devices, email configuration, back-up, asset visibility and from an enterprise and support perspective, supporting multiple devices.
The solution is integrated with the Kaseya K2 framework of providing automated IT management software and network management software and the 1.0 module will support Apple iPhone, iPad and all Android smart phones and tablets.
It targets IT professionals in corporate or managed service environments.
Kaseya president, Mark Sutherland, said, “We know that addressing the challenges of mobile devices on the corporate network has become a mission critical operation for IT staff. With our new solution, global IT staff can extend the ITSM benefits to all mobile devices to reduce the cost and effort of manual remediation while enabling security and policy compliance.”
The company conducted a poll, which showed that over 65 per cent of the channel saw an opportunity for new business by addressing the mobile channel and serving the BYOD computing challenge and over 82 per cent of them wanted to have an enterprise system management software that would address the challenges of mobile.
Some of the Kaseya Mobile Device Management key options include:
1. Audit – a single integrated UI for viewing and searching inventory that provides detailed application information and hardware device information. 2. Back-up and restore of user’s contacts 3. Email configuration that enables administrators to configure and automate the deployment of email setting to groups of devices at once 4. Security Tracking – a geo location tracking system that controls essential capabilities to track location of device in the case of loss or theft by sending an alarm to device to help identify location for user and remote lock and wipe capabilities
Kaseya managing director A/NZ, Dermot McCann, said, “Within the channel, we see the target market being very broad, given the nature of the solution. We see a huge demand in the larger enterprise organisations and service providers servicing them.”
The company will be selling the product directly to the channel partners and will be sold as a standalone application that can also be integrated with other applications in the Kaseya framework in either perpetual or subscription licensing on a per-seat basis.
The Kaseya Mobile Device Management module will be available globally in Q3 this year and multiple pricing options, to be released at a later stage, will be made available.
