Leading distributor of business IP, wireless, communication and network security and access solutions, Wavelink has partnered with Zenprise, Inc. to provide their channel partners with a complete Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution.
Zenprise specialises in the development of enterprise mobile device management software that enables companies to manage and secure their mobile enterprise infrastructure.
According to Ilan Rubin, managing director, Wavelink, the Zenprise offering complements Wavelink’s product strategy of offering end-to-end wireless network access, security and management solutions to partners.
Rubin views Zenprise as the perfect fit with Wavelink’s existing wireless and network access and security solutions, enhancing their ability to provide total enterprise solutions using best-of-breed vendors.
The growing proliferation of mobile devices and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) makes MDM one of the hottest growth areas in the enterprise space.
IDC estimates that the global mobile worker population will approach 1.2 billion in 2013. Organisations will have to face up to the challenge of securing and managing the billions of mobile devices used by workers while effectively protecting the entire mobile enterprise.
Though BYOD reduces hardware costs to an organisation, there is a greater cost involved in managing a range of disparate devices. Implementing a cost effective, automated MDM platform not only ensures a more secure environment, but also reduces additional management costs.
Zenprise’s award-winning MDM solution covers management of all elements in a mobile device’s lifecycle from initial configuration and provisioning to monitoring and security through to decommissioning at the end of life, which is beneficial if a device is lost or stolen.
Rubin adds that MDM solutions need to ensure protection of not only the devices themselves, but the applications running on them as well as the data and the networks being accessed, be it a CEO accessing corporate data on an iPad over an unprotected public wireless network or employees downloading consumer apps on their BYOD smartphones. Zenprise’s MDM solution addresses these needs, providing end-to-end compliance for organisations.
Welcoming Wavelink to the Zenprise Partner Network, Ahmed Datoo, Zenprise CMO explains that Wavelink’s focus on quality and service is a natural fit. By adding Zenprise MobileManager and Zencloud to its product portfolio, Wavelink is now providing its customers with leading solutions for enterprise mobility and BYOD initiatives.
