Novell makes BYOD enterprise ready
Novell announced the availability of ZENworks Mobile Management, which addresses the pain points device administrators and managers face today, including BYOD (bring your own device), security, application and file sharing, asset and inventory management and compliance issues.
Novell now gives enterprises the ability to control and secure a large and diverse set of mobile devices in the workforce, including iOS, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile and other ActiveSync enabled devices, with minimal impact to IT overhead.
Key features include:
Over-the-air/hands-off enrollment: Automates the process of enrolling new devices by leveraging ActiveSync mail server user credentials during the device registration process.
Application provisioning and file sharing: Ensures the right applications and files are available to authorized users via the Enterprise App Store and management console.
Customizable security settings: Empowers security teams and CISOs to define and customize security policies for mobile devices and audit enforcement, including encrypt/password enforcement and remote wipe.
Inventory and asset management: Provides a view into what is connecting to an organization, as well as tracks and manages all the mobile devices in an organization.
Alerts and notifications: Gives the option to set alerts to automatically bring IT’s attention to problems, violations or changes in security settings to ensure compliance, licensing and management needs are met.
BYOD friendly: Works equally well with personally owned devices with enhanced features like selective remote-wipe (only wipe company data) and self-provisioning.
