ManageEngine Tackles Latest Mobile Trends at Mobile World Congress
BARCELONA, Spain & PLEASANTON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
the real-time IT management company, today announced that it launched
critical, new mobile device management (MDM) capabilities at Mobile
World Congress. Delivered as part of its desktop and MDM software, Desktop
Central, the new features help IT organizations master the latest
mobile trends including the accelerating "bring your own device" (BYOD)
movement that is unleashing employee-owned devices and applications on
corporate networks. The company will demonstrate Desktop Central in
booth 8.1 E43 at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert), running February 25- 28, 2013,
at Fira Gran Via, in Barcelona.
The mobile juggernaut continues to pick up steam as mainstream
enterprises enter the BYOD era. In turn, enterprise IT organizations
find themselves under growing pressure to respond proactively and in
real time to the security, bandwidth, asset tracking and other issues
associated with managing employee-owned as well as corporate-owned
devices. Meanwhile, BYOD momentum is fueling the related "bring your own
application" (BYOA) trend in which employees use their own applications
at work, posing still more security risks to enterprise data and
"By just about every measure, mobile is exploding on the world stage,
including the enterprise," said Raj Sabhlok (News - Alert), president of ManageEngine,
a division of Zoho Corp. "As a result, we are seeing tremendous interest
in basic as well as advanced MDM capabilities from enterprise IT
organizations that want to get ahead and stay ahead of the mobile curve.
We've invested quite a bit of development time in bolstering our core
device management feature set as well as adding next-generation
functionality such as BYOA and near field communication support."
