BoxTone has added automated policy and compliance management to its enterprise mobility management platform.

The platform now offers a comprehensive real-time mobile security dashboard, analytics, alerting, audit reporting and expanded integration with enterprise IT systems, according to the company. It also said it delivers full enterprise-grade security, management and governance based on the enhancements.

Brian Reed, vice-president of products at BoxTone, said: “Most mobile device management technologies to date have adopted a manual, proprietary approach solely focused on initial device provisioning. This 'set it and forget it' old-world approach is doomed to failure as deployments become more dynamic and move from the hundreds to thousands of mobile devices and applications across the distributed enterprise.

“Enterprise mobility cannot be done in isolation and it cannot be seen as a simple feature/function mobile device management checklist. The enterprise cannot afford the systemic cost, compliance and risk exposure.

“As mobile deployment grows, risks grow exponentially without automation and direct integration with existing IT systems, leaving the enterprise exposed to security failures, regulatory breaches, service degradation and financial loss. With this major advance in our EMM platform, BoxTone has aligned enterprise mobility management with core IT services to help organisations accelerate and sustain mobility initiatives securely, reliably and at the lowest risk and cost.”
