SAP unveiled a cloud-based enterprise mobility management solution that enables IT organizations to manage and secure corporate and personally-owned devices.

The cloud edition of the SAP® Afaria mobile device management solution was introduced at the company's SAPPHIRE NOW event in Orlando, Florida, with partners including Amazon Web Services, Capgemini, and Mocana.

SAP Afaria, cloud edition, provides analytic dashboards from the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio giving customers instant insight into device compliance and usage for Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8.

“Enterprises are using AWS for every imaginable use case, and it’s been exciting to see the acceleration of SAP applications being run on AWS,” said Andy Jassy, senior vice president, AWS. “Powering SAP Afaria, cloud edition, on AWS is a natural extension of the strong and expanding relationship we have with SAP, as we work together to help enterprises manage their mobile devices in a scalable, low-cost and robust fashion.”

“Cyber security is increasingly a board room priority, and as such, iron-clad mobile security is job one for all CIOs and CISOs to execute their mobile strategy,” said Sanjay Poonen, president of Technology Solutions and the Mobile Division, SAP.
