XEROX Launches Cloud Services to Manage Mobile Devices22 Feb, 2012
Norwalk, CT - February 21, 2012 - Companies struggling to manage the pervasive growth of mobile devices can simplify how they implement and incorporate every type of device used throughout their organization with Xerox’s (NYSE: XRX) mobile device management service. The service is the latest in Xerox’s suite of business cloud services.
Cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) eliminates complicated technical implementation and oversight, as well as hardware and software costs. The benefits of Xerox MDM, says Ken Stephens, Xerox senior vice president of cloud services, is how it can adapt to any organization to manage virtually every type of mobile device, with pricing that’s ideal for enterprises and small businesses.
“Companies, large and small, struggle with how to identify, secure and track a host of mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops. Employees use them 24x7, anywhere and everywhere, and they need them all to connect and sync seamlessly,” said Stephens. “We keep it secure, simple and cost effective.”
Xerox’s mobile management approach is comprehensive. It includes everything that is needed by companies, starting with set-up and administration, plus IT staff training to help them see, track and secure any mobile device. It also makes sure devices can be locked and unusable, even formatted remotely.
Alan Snyder, chief executive officer at BoxTone, a Xerox partner, said the mobile service alleviates IT burdens and costs.
“The Xerox business cloud includes a mobile management approach that delivers the critical components for device management: security, ease-of-use and administration, and a price point that’s more than reasonable,” said BoxTone’s Snyder. Xerox’s cloud services include Boxtone’s automated technology for enterprise mobile management and mobile device management for the iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry devices and applications.
