Another operator adds device security as a service
Vodafone UK has added Vodafone Secure Device Manager for medium and large businesses to its portfolio of security solutions. Its software, powered by AirWatch, is designed to allow businesses to connect mobile devices, including employees' own devices to their corporate networks securely.
Operated through a management portal, Vodafone Secure Device Manager enables devices to be tracked and monitored, and any lost or stolen device can be ocked or ‘wiped’ of all corporate data. The software is available for OS including Android, Blackberry, iOS, Symbian, Windows Phone and Windows Mobile.
The Secure Device Manager can be deployed through the cloud or as an on-premise solution and includes a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) option meaning employees can use their own devices, representing an increased cost saving for many businesses.
Peter Boucher, Enterprise Commercial Marketing Director at Vodafone UK, says “In today’s highly competitive and technology-obsessed marketplace, businesses must adopt new devices that help them work smarter, but in the midst of so many cyber-threats and security breaches some companies are cautious about new innovations. Vodafone supports British businesses by offering simple-to-use services that give organisations the confidence to make best use of business-enhancing technology. Vodafone Secure Device Manager is part of Vodafone’s on-going commitment to help businesses find better ways of working.”
Pricing starts at £1.83* (exc. VAT) per device with set-up fees from just £300.00.
