Mobile Management is a product that allows customers to manage and secure the full lifecycle of their mobile device workforce, from one web services console, using similar concepts that ZENworks customers have come to appreciate; i.e., users, policies, and mobile apps.
Mobile Management manages a range of relevant platforms such as Apple iOS, Android (with enhanced functional via NitroDesk TouchDown), Windows Mobile, Symbian, and and other devices utilizing ActiveSync such as BlackBerry 10.x and Windows Phone.
Yes. Mobile Management provides the organization with a central way of locking down device settings, enforcing password requirements, and enforcing encryption on the device. Please refer to Device Platform Comparison for more information on specific device functionality.
Yes. Mobile Management can encrypt the contents of the device under management, and perform either a selective wipe or full wipe should the device be stolen or lost. Please refer to Device Platform Comparison for more information on which devices support encryption.
Mobile Management provides the ability to centrally provision applications and policies, collect device inventory information, enforce security features, asset tracking and location, remote device-wipe, and application/file management. In addition to these features, end users have the ability to access a self-service portal in order to execute some basic administrative features.
In its current release, you will need to install the Mobile Management web services on a Windows server running Internet Information Services (See Documentation for more information). The number of servers required by each customer may vary, depending on the size of the implementation and complexity.
Yes. Personal and corporate devices can be tracked and managed with separate security policy settings, within the same policy group. For example, you can remote-wipe all of a corporate device while only remote-wiping corporate data on a personal device.
Mobile Management will be partially integrated into the ZENworks Control Center (ZCC) in the next release of the product; this will include a unified install, as well as support for Oracle and Sybase databases in addition to MS SQL. This initial integration will allow ZCC users to open and manipulate the Mobile Management web console within ZCC. The following release will include complete integration into ZCC.
