Dell Software Group Enables IT to Say “Yes!” to Mobility

Today Dell Software announced a limited release of Dell KACE’s K3000 Mobile Management Appliance, helping IT managers solve the challenges posed by the proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace. The K3000 extends system management capabilities to enforce security policies for both corporate and personal mobile devices running on iOS and Android operating systems. Integration with the K1000 Systems Management Appliance provides IT managers with a powerful, integrated, easy-to-use solution to accurately track, monitor and manage desktops, laptops, servers and mobile devices more efficiently.

As organizations embrace the opportunities that come with mobility they also face new challenges. Whether the devices are corporate owned or are established through a ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) environment, the number and types of devices that must be managed are growing, increasing IT infrastructure complexity. The K3000 empowers IT to address the challenge of supporting and securing mobile devices through an on-premise mobile management appliance that simplifies management of mobile devices.

"The rapid influx of users bringing their own consumer mobile devices that demand access to corporate resources presents challenges to organizations," stated Philip Redman, research vice president at Gartner in a recent press release. "However, by implementing a structured support system with varied support levels, IT organizations can shield business information and enforce policies about data movement between the device and the corporate network, while enabling users to adopt the device they deem most appropriate. Organizations will find it hard to achieve an efficient mobile-support system if all platforms are not managed the same way under enterprise requirements.”

The Dell KACE K3000 Management Appliance joins Dell’s mobile management portfolio that includes Dell Wyse’s Cloud Client Manager and Dell MDM to provide organizations with the ability to manage the complete breadth of end user devices from a single vendor, including laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones and thin clients as well as a larger onsite managed service offering.

“The definition of systems management is changing,” said Rob Meinhardt, general manager for Dell KACE. “In the past, our customers managed laptops, desktops and servers. Increasingly, they need to say ‘yes’ to devices of all kinds including smartphones and tablets. With the Dell KACE K3000 Mobile Management Appliance, our customers will have a well-integrated and easy-to-use system for managing and securing all types of devices, operating systems and endpoints in their IT environment.”

Enable IT to Say “Yes!” To Mobility

The Dell KACE K3000 Mobile Management Appliance extends systems management capabilities to enforce security policies for mobile devices running iOS and Android and includes the following features:

  • Single-step secure setup gets users up and running quickly and includes over the air provisioning of K3000 agents to devices.
  • Support for popular personal smartphones and tablet computers including Apple iOS 4.5 and 6 iPhones and iPads, Android 2.2+ C2DM-enabled smartphones and tablets.
  • Device security and policy management helps protect your organizations data through features such as profile management, device lock and unlock, remote enterprise wipe and remote factory reset.
  • Simplified application management allows pushing corporate applications on to both corporate as well as personal mobile devices.
  • View all endpoints from a single console through integration with the Dell KACE K1000 Systems Management Appliance. IT admins can now seamlessly access both appliances through single-sign on and view all mobile devices, PCs and servers from a single console.

Dell KACE will offer general availability of the K3000 Mobile Management Appliance in early 2013. The limited release will be rolled out to KACE customers in January.

Organizations that have been collecting large customer data are increasingly seeing the need to use the data for swapping in and out and thrashing occurs ...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
