NaviSite locks down BYOD for businesses
Time Warner Cable’s NaviSite has launched its Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) platform to help businesses securely manage employees’ devices in the workplace.
NaviSite said EMM was designed to enable enhanced data security while simplifying the management of devices and resources across an organization. NaviSite’s EMM offerings provide a range of Mobile Device Management (MDM) capabilities to help companies secure mobile data across a range of personal devices in the workplace environment where “bring your own device” (BYOD) has become the norm.
With EMM, companies can control access to, and usage of, business-critical data across a range of mobile devices through mobile device management, mobile application management, mobile content management, containerization and workspaces, and a software development kit.
A self-service portal allows administrators to create new users, generate reports, and administer permissions and access resources, among other controls. With role-based access, enterprises can better govern the changes that elevate the security of mobile operations, without impeding productivity, according to NaviSite.
“Mobile devices are proliferating at an exponential rate, introducing a new set of security and management challenges for enterprises,” said Sumeet Sabharwal, general manager, NaviSite. “Our solution enables businesses with a comprehensive, fully managed solution to address their entire enterprise mobility and collaboration needs without compromising on their security, compliance, and performance standards.”
NaviSite’s EMM solution uses technology from AirWatch by VMware, which is an enterprise mobility management platform provider.
NaviSite, which Time Warner Cable bought three years ago for $230 million, is a provider of enterprise-class, cloud-enabled hosting, managed applications and services.
Time Warner Cable’s business services revenue grew by 25 percent in its most recent first quarter earnings report. The nation’s second largest cable operator, which is in the process of being acquired by Comcast, has previously said it has targeted $5 billion in annual business service revenue by 2018.
