Numara Software (News - Alert), a provider of service management, endpoint lifecycle management and mobile device management solutions for IT professionals has launched the Numara Cloud Mobile Device Manager (News - Alert) (MDM).
Offered as part of the Numara Cloud family of IT operations management solutions, the new mobile device management solution enables IT organizations to securely manage mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. The solution also provides deep integration into Numara Cloud IT Operations Management solutions.
"As the explosion of mobile devices used by employees across the entire company continues, knowing what devices are accessing the network and from where is an absolute requirement for any IT security strategy," said Dave Hansen, Numara CEO, in a statement. "Without proper control over mobile devices, sensitive company data can be accessed, and viruses can proliferate unabated potentially jeopardizing the security of the entire network.”
The company has integrated its mobile device management solution with service and endpoint management capabilities by leveraging the cloud to provide tight, seamless management and security of mobile devices, Hansen added.
The new Numara Cloud Mobile Device Manager secures companies' most sensitive data which helps them increase user productivity through personal mobile device access to company networks, as well as saves the service desk and IT department both time and money. In addition, the mobile device management solution delivers real-time tracking for mobile device applications and system usage, while simultaneously providing a complete picture of device access and capabilities linked to the network.
Numara’s cloud mobile device management solution allows for easy and secure registration for all mobile devices accessing the network and auto-provisions, based upon a company's specific configuration policies.
Additionally, the Numara Software Exchange Defender prevents unmanaged mobile devices from accessing the Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange environment, eliminating the risk of critical data leaks via e-mail. The Numara Software Exchange Investigator supports ongoing risk assessment, identifying the potential exposure to malicious e-mail hackers by providing executive-level reporting, detailing the number of users and mobile devices connected to exchange.
With GEO-Locating GPS options integrated with Google (News - Alert) Maps, the mobile device management solution enables the IT department to easily locate and recover lost or stolen devices.
