Cloud-based Mobile Device Management Service Honored in Two Categories for Service Excellence and Customer Satisfaction
DENVER, January 11, 2012 - Virtela, the world's largest independent managed network, security and cloud services company, today announced that its Cloud-based Mobile Device Management (MDM) service has been named a finalist in the 8th annual Global Excellence Awards by Info Security Products Guide. Virtela's MDM Service - the industry's first global cloud service for managing and securing mobile devices - was honored in both the 'Service Excellence' and 'Best Customer Deployment' categories. Info Security's prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that help raise the quality bar in all technology areas.
Virtela's Cloud-based MDM Service was recognized for its success in addressing one of IT's biggest challenges: managing and securing the exponential growth of smartphones and tablets in the enterprise. The service off-loads overburdened IT organizations, providing benefits such as instant service turn-up, improved security, risk mitigation, cost savings and productivity.
Powered by Virtela Enterprise Services Cloud (ESC), the only cloud platform purpose‐built for enterprise networking, security and mobility, the MDM service leverages Virtela's 50 Local Cloud Centers (LCCs) around the world for service activation within hours. Virtela's carrier-, vendor- and technology-independent model ensures the service works across all major mobile operators and platforms (including Apple iOS, Blackberry, Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian) in 190+ countries.
Customers can rapidly deploy policies and control access, and are automatically notified of unauthorized activities, as well as when roaming, data, voice or SMS usage thresholds have been met, helping prevent overuse charges. The service is backed by the first Real-Time Notification Service Level Agreement (SLA) for managed mobility services, which guarantees customers will be alerted within 15 minutes of mobile activities that compromise corporate policies.
"It is our mission to continuously leverage powerful emerging technologies to provide solutions that address the rapidly changing IT enterprise landscape," said Jian Li, Virtela's chief technology officer and vice president of technical solutions. "All market signs point to enterprises needing a stronger mobility strategy, and our service uniquely addresses this with a holistic, cloud-based approach that integrates all key aspects of mobile device management. We're honored to receive continued recognition for its unique capabilities."
