Sophos Mobile Control 5 redefines enterprise mobility management with
user-based data protection and cloud-based management
MUMBAI, India – May 4, 2015
Satcom Infotech Pvt ltd, India’s leading value added distributor in the security domain, today announced the availability of Sophos Mobile Control 5(SMC 5) to further simplify mobile device management with user-based data protection and cloud-based management. The re-designed self-service portal SMC 5 makes compliance with corporate security policy simpler for both administrator and end user across all three mobile platforms – iOS 8, Windows Phone 8.1 and Android. The new management options enable an administrator to easily achieve the separation and encryption of personal and corporate information, as well as configure access and security settings through automated tasks, reducing management time and costs.
Satcom Infotech forms close and mutually beneficial partnerships with the world’s leading IT security companies to bring its customers the most advanced and flexible technology solutions. Satcom distributes a range of Sophos security solutions including Sophos Endpoint Protection, Sophos UTM, Sophos Email Protection and Sophos Encryption. These products help keep organizations free from all types of threats and reduce the complexities in security management.
Mr Dan Schiappa, SVP and GM at Sophos’ Enduser Security Group, “With more workers choosing to use their personal devices for business, IT managers have been faced with the complexity of managing corporate security, and adhering personal data privacy laws. Managing upwards of four devices per user brings considerable risk into the business, and unnecessarily diverts precious IT resource. By focusing on the user permissions, and with remote management and self-service capability, SMC 5 sets a new standard for usability and simplicity. The redesigned user interface and intuitive workflows make security and management of mobile devices a simple task that takes minimal time.”
SMC 5 enables users to manage devices centrally and simply with a single platform to manage and secure all user devices. IT managers only have to set one policy, from any remote location, to manage the security of corporate content stored on the device or in a personal cloud. Recently named as an enterprise mobility management (EMM) leader by Forrester, Sophos continues to bring enterprise level features to the small and medium business that does not typically have the resources to manage a comprehensive BYOD strategy.
Mr Vinod Kumar, Managing Director at Satcom Infotech says, “Mobility is in a state of constant change with new devices and apps coming every day. Many IT professionals are evaluating enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions to help them manage the influx of mobile devices and shield them from the inherent complexity of BYOD. The extended platform support across iOS 8, Windows Phone and Android platforms in SMC 5 can effectively aid an organization’s workforce mobility strategy, ensure compliance, protect corporate data, and provide centralized management while supporting easy administration.”
Sophos enterprise mobility brings productivity on the go, with email, documents, customer relationship management (CRM) records and business intelligence (BI) apps available on mobile devices.
