Real-Time Roaming Notification and Enforcement. The service quickly detects when roaming - as well as data, voice, and SMS - usage thresholds have been reached, and provides real-time alerts to the IT team as well as the end-user to avert service charges associated with unauthorized roaming or excessive data use.
Enterprise App Store Management. Enterprises can distribute internal applications to mobile devices without going through vendor app stores and apply pre-set access policies with a single click. The service also provides the flexibility for IT or end users to update policies and initiate or schedule other processes, such as backup.
In-Country Compliance Enforcement. Customers can perform configuration management and back up data within specific countries or regions to better meet local compliance and privacy laws. The service also uniquely features SMS text archiving and search to meet additional compliance requirements emerging in certain geographies.
Centralized Control via VirtelaView. Companies gain a single view into their mobile device environment and can control access to key network resources and applications by specific user groups or lines of business. The portal can be white-labeled by enterprises or partners, and includes asset tracking and management (including mobile OS, service plans and applications by device), and security controls, such as remote lock and data wipes for lost or stolen devices.
"We're excited to extend the proven benefits of Virtela's advanced cloud service platform to managed mobility, giving customers the same savings, scalability and investment protection while lifting a significant IT burden," said Virtela CEO B.V. Jagadeesh. "Virtela's cloud MDM service is the latest addition to our portfolio of mobile enterprise services, such as our award-winning cloud-based remote access and largest global footprint for 3G/4G wireless networks, with more innovation come."
