Sophos launches latest version of its mobile device management solution

Infotech Lead India: w, IT security and data protection solution provider, has launched the latest version of its mobile device management (MDM) solution.

Sophos Mobile Control 2.5 features an updated web-based administrative console and extensive new feature set.

The latest version provides a simple way to bring BYOD into the enterprise-quickly, safely and securely, all while reducing the reliance upon IT.

As Sophos Mobile Control 2.5 has optimized workflows IT administrators can complete many common tasks in one click.

The new version offers easy integration with existing IT infrastructure by supporting the use of directories, such as Active Directory, to automatically assign newly-registered devices to existing groups and apply the associated policies to them.

The enhanced interface includes detailed graphical reports to assist IT administrators in managing all aspects of mobile devices, offering them immediate insight into which devices require updating, and ensuring that all devices are secure.

“BYOD is top of mind for myriad organizations; however, it’s causing some concern among IT. The increase in personal devices accessing the network may complicate the process of ensuring devices are secure and compliant with company policies, making it difficult for IT to justify broad BYOD acceptance. Solutions with features like those found in the latest version of Sophos Mobile Control allow organizations to develop BYOD strategies without compromising on security, or complicating the overall management of the network,” said Stacy K. Crook, senior analyst, Mobile Enterprise Research, IDC.
