Phuah said IBM Endpoint Manager for Mobile Devices would help organisations better support and protect the growing mobile workforce. "Organisations can install the IBM software in hours, remotely set policies, identify potential data compromises and wipe data off the devices if they are lost or stolen. The software helps configure and enforce passcode policies, encryption and virtual private network settings."
He said features of the solution included:
Provide Flexible Management -- Secure and manage employee- and corporate-owned mobile devices using a combination of email-based and agent-based management, while preserving the native device experience.
- Maintain Compliance -- Automatically identify non-compliant devices and take action by denying e-mail access or by issuing user notifications until corrective actions are implemented.
- Unify the Infrastructure -- Leverage a single infrastructure to manage and secure all devices: smartphones, media tablets, desktops, laptops, and servers.
