)-- Trusted leader in mobile device management
solutions, Fiberlink, recently announced that its MaaS360 platform would support the Kindle Fire device from Amazon. As more employees access their company email and other work-related data via their mobile devices, companies and organizations are seeking methods to assure that networks and data are secure at all times. The highly anticipated Kindle Fire is the product that is currently given and wished for the most out of the entire Amazon inventory. And the MaaS360 support of the new Kindle Fire will let employees and their organizations confidently use the increasingly popular mobile device without sacrificing security or choice.
A recent Fiberlink survey of over 300 information technology professionals indicated that nearly half of them were using one tablet for their personal and work related activities. And about 40 percent of those surveyed were likely to purchase Amazon’s Kindle Fire, indicating the need to provide secure access of work related data as the new device is relied upon for both personal use and work. MaaS360 provides the Kindle Fire with the leading device management solution relied upon by so many other mobile platforms. A mobile device management solution that does not support the Kindle Fire means that organizations and their employees will have fewer options for their devices of choice and less security if those devices are brought into the work place.
The expansion of the MaaS360 mobile device management solution to support the Kindle Fire empowers IT managers with the tools and confidence to manage company data and enforce security policies across the wide range of mobile devices employees will be using. The cloud-based MaaS360 service is the only mobile device management solution that allows all enterprise mobile devices -- android devices, laptops, Windows Phone 7 devices, iPhones, iPads -- to be managed via one console. MaaS360 mobile device management support for the Kindle Fire includes features such as secure email, real time inventory reporting, configuration management over the air, remote actions on devices, security enforcement, alerts and auto quarantines of devices, and document and corporate application management.
As more mobile devices are introduced, it is clear that the BYOD or “bring your own device” wave will only get bigger. Organizations will need the tools that will allow them to give employees that device choice, while still safeguarding data and company protocols. MaaS360’s inclusion of the Kindle Fires in its mobile device management solution support enables organizations and their employees to have choice and security.
