Orange Business Services Launches Secure My Device Worldwide

Orange Business Services has launched a "Secure My Device" service to help provide security, supervision and control of mobile and remote PC devices. The service integrates technologies from BigFix, an Emeryville, California headquartered provider of high performance platforms for delivery of managed services. Key capabilities include:

  • Central visibility -- Central reporting and management provided by a global solution gives an IT manager end-to-end visibility of what security policies and rules end-users have on their PC.

  • Easy and rapid roll out with low operational risk -- Orange Business Services host the platforms in secure data centers, manage, maintain and support the core service infrastructure without a dedicated customer infrastructure.

  • Flexible security & management solution -- The consolidated compliance check and patch distribution with security policies can be adjusted per category or per use of devices. The security policies and rules range from mere compliance and patch to a full Network Access Control feature.

  • Cost control -- An adaptive pricing model allows for "pay-as-you-go" pricing in which customers only pay for the options chosen.

  • Future proof -- The solution helps mitigating for zero day attacks and is ready for today's and tomorrow's security challenges.

The new service complements Business Everywhere and Mobile Office from Orange Business Services.
