Symantec Advances Enterprise Mobility Strategy

Symantec is advancing its enterprise mobility strategy across Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7 platforms with new Mobile Device Management (MDM) capabilities and mobile threat protection for both company-owned devices and personally owned mobile phones and tablets. The expanded strategy addresses enterprises’ concerns by applying corporate security policies uniformly on all mobile devices, endpoints and applications.

Key highlights include:

  • New Symantec Mobile Management for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)

  • Enhanced native mobile device management for Android and Windows Phone 7

  • New Symantec Mobile Security for Android

  • New Symantec Data Loss Prevention for Tablets integration with Mobile Management

  • New Symantec Managed PKI Service integration with Mobile Management

  • Symantec O3 tie with Symantec’s enterprise mobility platform.

Symantec’s modular enterprise mobility platform will allow these services to be delivered via on-prem and SaaS models.

“Our recent State of Mobility Survey highlighted that 59 percent of enterprises are making line-of-business applications accessible from mobile devices, representing a dramatic shift in the nature of mobility from an email extension to a core business enabler,�? said CJ Desai, senior vice president, Endpoint and Mobility Group, Symantec.
