Wick Hill is now shipping Barracuda's Mobile Device Manager (MDM) solution with support for Android operating systems. MDM is a free cloud-based mobile device and application management service, which is part of the Barracuda's Total Threat Protection initiative. This update offers customers more choices to manage various mobility initiatives across a wide range of industries.
"We first released Barracuda MDM with iOS support targeting our K – 12 customers rolling out 1:1 iPad initiatives," said Stephen Pao, GM Security, Barracuda. "By extending Barracuda MDM support to the Android operating system, we look forward to extending support to help our corporate customers manage their BYOD environments that span both Android and iOS."
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: "Dealing with multiple mobile devices is a common problem in enterprise and education deployments. This enables administrators to easily and inexpensively manage their user bases."
Barracuda MDM simplifies the management of Android and iOS devices, enabling organizations to safely implement BYOD policies. Barracuda MDM is managed through a centralized console integrated into the Barracuda Cloud Control portal.
- Security - Configure mobile devices to include passcode policies, functionality restrictions, email/Exchange Active Sync, authentication credentials, and wifi/vpn/proxy access.
- Application Management - Manage app store access, enterprise applications, and integrate mobile devices into the Apple VPP program. Installed applications can be monitored and unauthorized applications can be flagged for follow-up.
- Remote Management - Wipe or lock stolen devices, un-enroll devices when employees leave the company, and change security and access policies with an easy to use, intuitive user interface.
Barracuda MDM integrates with a number of Barracuda solutions and is accessed in Barracuda Cloud Control, which provides a single-pane of glass for customers to manage their security infrastructure. Barracuda mobile applications such as Barracuda Safe Browser, Barracuda Copy and CudaSign by Barracuda can be pushed down to mobile devices, allowing IT administrators to enforce browsing policies, improve workflow, and manage the document signing process.
