As More Mobile Devices Enter the Workplace, the Partnership Will Enable NetStandard to Mitigate Customer Security Risks
KANSAS CITY, Kan., May 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NetStandard, a leading provider of strategic information technology solutions for small and midsized businesses, and Fiberlink, the leader in cloud-based enterprise mobility management, announced today a partnership that will enable business leaders in Kansas City to more effectively manage their mobile workforce with MaaS360, a Mobility-as-a-Service offering that simplifies mobile device management, mobile application management and secure document sharing in a secure cloud environment.
The introduction of mobile devices in the workplace has enabled workers to stay connected to business operations regardless of their location or the time of day. Although mobile devices have increased worker productivity, these devices–and the potentially sensitive data stored in them–are at risk of being stolen, hacked, broken or lost. MaaS360 will allow NetStandard to help businesses manage and control smartphones, tablets and laptops for corporate and employee-owned devices and enable NetStandard to assist customers in enforcing security policies, avoiding theft of corporate data and preventing threats that could affect the integrity of the company’s data, services or network.
With MaaS360’s on-demand mobility management, NetStandard’s customers will have cloud-based, real-time access to portal administration functions, including device management (inventory, policy configurations and compliance enforcement), application and document distribution and device compliance functions for both company-owned and personal devices. The ability to manage devices from a single portal will also support the efforts of companies’ internal IT teams, many of whom face a lack of staffing resources and pressure to stay current with the latest changes in a rapidly evolving mobile device landscape.
Customers leveraging NetStandard’s new mobile device management services will have access to NetStandard’s 24/7 monitoring and support desk services, including rapid-response emergency service requests, changes or service anomalies.
