Verizon adds mobile device management capabilities into enterprise mobility solution

Verizon has expanded its Enterprise Mobility-as-a-Service technology to provide support for applications, access options and devices including smartphones, tablets and laptops.

According to the company, the product's offering include a secure workspace to separate and protect professional data on both corporate-issued and employee-owned devices and mobile device management.

It said that it is easier for IT managers to secure both mobile and stationary computing devices by automatically pushing software updates, IT policies and patches across a global enterprise workforce. Verizon also claimed that the service provides up-to-date, detailed inventory reports on all hardware, software and devices on corporate-owned equipment.

Employees can download authorised enterprise apps via a self-service portal to enable the adoption of multiple services.

Bill Versen, director of mobility solutions for Verizon enterprise solutions, said: “Until now, companies have had to cobble together the essential requirements to employ effective enterprise mobility policies and programs. With Enterprise Mobility-as-a-Service, companies can leverage a single user-based management platform to outfit a global workforce to successfully navigate the changing business landscape for greater productivity.”
