Tata Teleservices has launched an enterprise mobile device management (MDM) product which will provide secure access to official data and emails on mobiles, data recovery in case of theft or loss and device management across multiple operating systems. The telco agnostic product will be available on a monthly rental as well, which Tata says will save companies capital expenditure.
Once the MDM administrator has onboarded devices, they will have access to diagnostics and remote device management and monitoring through a central management console (CMC). The product is especially aimed at chief information officers (CIOs). Through the MDM, even ‘bring your own device’ can be incorporated into the CMC instead of the company investing in hardware and software, Prateek Pashine, president of Enterprise Business at Tata Teleservices said.
Tata Teleservices provides integrated voice, data and managed services to enterprises of all sizes in the country. It claims to have 2,000 employees in the enterprise team, 1,200 channel partners for ICT solutions in 60 cities in India. It also claims to have a fibre optic line of 125,000 kms in major cities in the country.
