Orlando, Fla.—International CTIA WIRELESS 2011 and Blue Bell, Pa— Fiberlink®, a leader in enterprise mobility management and creator of cloud-based Mobility-as-a-Service solutions, today announced further enhancements to its MaaS360 Mobile Device Management (MDM) offering. Built on a multi-tenant platform, MaaS360 is already used by 300 organizations globally to manage and secure their mobile devices. These latest advancements bring new capabilities in ease of use, manageability, integration and affordability for MDM.

Fiberlink has set the standard for what it means to deliver a true SaaS-based mobility solution that can be securely accessed on-demand through the Internet.

 

  • No on-premise hardware
  • No ongoing maintenance, updates or upgrades
  • No network reconfiguration
  • No perpetual licenses

Vendors that host their existing on-premise solutions and label it SaaS can’t offer the economic and technical advantages of true SaaS for mobility because too many resources are used maintaining multiple versions of their solution. MaaS360 MDM rapidly delivers these new innovations from a single, shared platform across all customers or tenants, enabling them to focus on value-added innovation in their own business.

“There is a lot of confusion out there in the market around mobile device management and cloud. Our approach is to educate customers and prospects on how to best approach their end to end mobility needs and what it means to really be SaaS,” said James Sheward, CEO of Fiberlink. “We have a long history in delivering secure, cloud-based lifecycle management of mobile devices and users. These latest capabilities are a natural evolution in our SaaS for Mobility strategy.”

Ease of Use
MaaS360 provides instant-on access to powerful MDM capabilities from a highly secure, multi-tenant production environment, streamlining the device enrollment process to make life simple for IT and employees. Maas360 MDM now automatically creates default policies for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices allowing IT to modify an existing policy rather than creating one from scratch.

Users get an intuitive device enrollment process that now takes just minutes. Administrators can choose if they want a fully-automated process or be very restrictive, manually approving any device which is trying to access corporate e-mail systems through auto-quarantine.

Enterprise Manageability
MaaS360 MDM provides one window to secure all smartphones, tablets and laptops with centralized policy management across multiple platforms. This latest release includes expanded support for all major mobile devices including Windows Mobile, Windows 7 Phone, Symbian, iOS and Android, with both device and user views. The system can be easily configured to adapt to the needs of individual customers and there is no maintenance required. Users are always on the latest version of the product without ongoing maintenance and upgrades. With SAS-70 certification and world-class security, Fiberlink provides service level guarantees including uptime, backup and disaster recovery for high-availability and mobile business continuity without having to implement multiple redundant appliances.

Integration with Existing Infrastructure
Unlike premise-based or hosted solutions, a true cloud-based approach to MDM provides the fastest way to gain secure mobile control with no additional on-premise hardware required to install and manage. With MaaS360 MDM, there is no need for point-to-point VPN or network and firewall changes on customer sites. Through MaaS360 CloudExtender, IT can now securely integrate mobile devices with their existing Lotus Notes Traveler infrastructure, in addition to Microsoft Exchange, ActiveSync, and Active Directory. Robust APIs ease the integration process for both enterprise and channel partners.

Affordability
Outside of being faster and easier to use, MaaS360 MDM is more affordable than ever before. This true cloud-based service model allows organizations to start managing a small group of users now and grow as needs changes, reaping the benefits of a pay-as-you-go subscription model.

MaaS360 MDM is now free for up to 25 devices per company and can be accessed instantly atlinks.maas360.com/startnow.
