Sophos releases enhanced mobile device management platform

Sophos, an IT security and data protection
company, announced Sophos Mobile Control 2.0, the latest mobile device
management solution which ensures customers have complete protection everywhere
and on any device.

Sophos Mobile Control supports a variety of mobile
devices and operating systems such as Apple iPhones and iPads, including the
latest iOS5 release, Google Android phones and tablets, Windows Mobile devices
and RIM BlackBerry-managing all of these from one web-based console.

“We understand that businesses are increasingly
mobile and their workforce is adding an extra layer of complexity. With the
enhancements within Sophos Mobile Control, we are aiming to streamline and
simplify device and data protection, while giving employees the
flexibility they want, and IT departments the protection they need,” said
Matthias Pankert, vice president of Product
Management, Mobile Data Protection, Sophos.

With the continued proliferation of mobile devices, many
people are utilizing their personal devices for work as well. Accessing
sensitive data on these devices is causing an array of security and compliance
issues for businesses and their IT administrators.

Sophos Mobile Control is designed specifically for IT
administrators to simply and quickly secure, monitor and control smart phones
and other personal mobile devices.

The new version of Sophos mobile control allow IT
administrators to configure, require or recommend apps to download and it also
enable administrators to deploy company-specific apps that are not published in
the Apple App Store or the Google Market.

Sophos mobile control offers the self Service Portal
feature that further eases the burden on IT. After registering an employee
device, users are able to access features such as lock mobile devices, wipe
devices, locate devices and reset passwords.
