Shavlik Powers up its Mobile Capability with Mobile Device Management

Shavlik MDM enhances existing portfolio with ability to manage Windows, Android and iOS devices

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., September 3, 2013— Shavlik is pleased to announce the release of Shavlik Mobile Device Management (MDM) for the management of smartphones, tablets and rugged devices. As IT departments realign to the new realities of User-Oriented IT, they are coming to terms with securing a mobile, global, 24-hour workplace. One of the central considerations in this IT shift is the need to secure a diverse set of mobile devices. To fulfill this pressing IT need, Shavlik has created Shavlik Mobile Device Management. This product is a rich addition to Shavlik’s legacy in agentless endpoint patching technology, virtualization security, and third party patching as well as an easy-to-use means of managing Windows, Android, and iOS devices.

The new world of device management and security extends beyond the office and the domain of servers, workstations and desktops to devices that roam the mobile space. Keeping track of mobile devices while ensuring a company’s data is safe presents a host of challenges to IT. These challenges are amplified by daily news headlines related to stolen or compromised data that have been contained on unsecured devices. In addition to the crush of corporate mobile devices, IT departments must manage employee devices used for business (BYOD). This increases the pressure to find robust, affordable and easy to use mobile management software.

Shavlik Mobile Device Management provides a comprehensive, integrated mobile device management solution that helps customers handle operational and IT transformation with ease and efficiency. Shavlik’s mobile device management solutions enable enterprise IT and business operations organizations to reduce the time, cost, and risks associated with managing mobile devices and business critical application delivery. Shavlik MDM streamlines and automates mobile device and infrastructure management tasks across, wireless LAN and WAN, and ensures that the wireless environment is secure.

“Today it is simply not enough to maintain the security of desktops, workstations and servers,” said Robert Juncker, vice president of engineering, Shavlik. “The new measure of protection is protecting your data wherever it is and Shavlik has its customers covered with Shavlik MDM.”
