BoxTone, a provider of automated enterprise mobility management (EMM) solutions, has extended support to BlackBerry (News - Alert) PlayBook tablets running PlayBook OS 2.0.
The software provides IT support and security professionals with unified management and control, helping them ensure high service quality and security at the lowest cost and risk. BoxTone’s (News - Alert) solutions are designed to meet the needs of all types of organizations especially those in regulated industries such as financial services, government and healthcare.
"Before they can fully mobilize their workforce, regulated organizations and mission-critical mobile scenarios require both superior mobile data security and superior service quality," said Brian Reed, chief product officer, BoxTone.
"That's why so many large enterprises turn to BoxTone whenever they choose to roll out new mobile devices, apps and services, like the PlayBook,” Reed added. “BoxTone's EMM platform automates management, monitoring and support, enabling the rapid operationalization of devices and apps while freeing up IT to focus on the more strategic aspects of mobility."
With its EMM solution for BlackBerry PlayBook, BoxTone empowers IT to more efficiently operationalize a PlayBook deployment with several role-based capabilities including monitoring of real-time mobile services, performance optimization, real-time status of issues, and information security and IT management to automatically track and control inventory, ensure policy compliance and optimize its application.
BoxTone’s automated EMM platform simplifies the delivery of mobile services from a single point of control. The EMM platform spans full mobile lifecycle of security, support and operations across all mobile users, devices and apps for enterprise mobile deployments. With this tool, enterprise users of PlayBook can achieve their full productivity potential in a secure, easily managed and supported environment.
In addition to the PlayBook, BoxTone supports all BlackBerry smartphones and operating systems -- including the latest BlackBerry 7 OS handsets, such as the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930, BlackBerry Torch 9810, and the BlackBerry Torch 9850 and 9860 and more.
In a significant development earlier this year, BoxTone announced partnership with Verizon Enterprise Solutions and Motorola (News - Alert) Mobility to develop a mobile health (mHealth) solution for the healthcare industry.
The new joint venture will provide “health care practitioners with secure mobile devices and apps,” so that patient care can be improved because data, shared in near-real time, will help clinicians make faster decisions, and could help in reducing costs.
