IT security and data protection company, Sophos, has signed a partnership agreement with New Zealand-based IT services provider, Scientific Software & Systems, to provide mobile device management in the Cloud.
Via Sophos’ mobile control product, SSS will deploy and manage the product across New Zealand, providing direct support and advice to its customers.
The product provides mobile device management, enabling the ability to simply and quickly secure, monitor, and control the configuration of these devices connecting to the corporate network.
This partnership is important as it helps Sophos and SSS address opportunities that mobility presents in the workplace.
“The security landscape is becoming increasingly complex, with the latest challenge arising as businesses try to effectively deploy and manage a fleet of mobile devices across teams. This partnership removes the complexity of managing mobile security and delivers a simple, yet cost effective way by allowing a third party to manage this for an organisation,” said Sophos ANZ general manager, Ashley Wearne.
The partnership is effective immediately, with SSS having signed up a range of customers in both enterprise and government to mobile device management in the cloud with Sophos Mobile Control, the companies said.
