SOTI's Enhanced Technology Brings Android Security on Par with iOS!
MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 16, 2012 /CNW/ - SOTI Inc., world-leader in Enterprise Mobility Device Management (MDM), has unveiled new technology that enables corporations to
consistently manage security policies across Android devices from all
Currently, Android provides limited management and security APIs for MDM
vendors to leverage. As a result, OEMs need to create their own APIs in
order for MDM vendors to build tools to manage their devices. This
creates disparity as each OEM adds functionality in varying degrees and
Today, although MDM solutions say that they can manage Android devices, their ability to do
so varies based on the level of support provided by each OEM. For
example, one popular MDM provider claims to be able to manage and
secure all Android devices, but can only set a password complexity
policy on these devices.
SOTI has taken a different approach from other MDM vendors, and has
built unique technology that provides advanced and consistent management for all Android devices regardless of the manufacturer. The advanced management features that
SOTI's MobiControl MDM provides include:
Full suite of Help desk tools, including real-time remote control
Secure Content Locker
Silent installation of applications and updates
Policies for controlling access to corporate email
Device Lockdown/Kiosk functionality
Location based automatic management (i.e. Geofencing)
Remote wipe of corporate data or full device wipe
Enterprise App Store
Self Service Management Portal
And much more…
SOTI is the only MDM vendor in the world that currently has advanced
management features for Android devices, such as real-time remote control, lockdown/kiosk functionality, geofencing, etc.
Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI said, "There is a lot of talk
by the analysts these days about the need for management tools for
Bring-Your-Own Device (BYOD) policies. Most MDM vendors cannot provide
consistent management across all Android devices, making BYOD
implementation impossible. MobiControl's unique deep management
functionality across all Android devices allows IT departments to set
consistent BYOD security and management policies on Android, iOS and
Recent survey data from Strategy Analytics shows escalating BYOD adoption of Android devices into the enterprise.
Over the next 12, months, enterprises worldwide are planning to
purchase 44% more Android tablets and 34% more iPads. With enterprises
having to pay 78.7% of related smartphone costs and replace them every
13 months, the need for comprehensive MDM is essential to optimize
device efficiency and security.

space, SOTI MobiControl is the Mobile Device Management and Help desk
solution of choice for organizations looking to manage and secure their
devices across all platforms. It is the only MDM solution today that
