Dell's software division has upgraded its enterprise mobility management (EMM) technologies, making the software more inclusive across different devices and operating systems, while tackling security concerns over bring your own device (BYOD) and big data.
Announcing the news ahead of its Dell World conference in Austin, Texas, the technology giant said its latest EMM solutions will integrate within its BYOD offerings to give customers better productivity tools while keeping data secure.
"[We are] building on earlier announcements with a unified solution that provides mobile device management, mobile application management, mobile content management, a Secure Remote Access gateway (SonicWALL), and secure endpoint with SSL/VPN [secure sockets layer/virtual private network] capability, through Dell's Mobile Connect for Windows, iOS and Android devices," the firm said.
"Engineered together, these components comprise Dell's end-to-end EMM solution, supporting enterprise customers' biggest challenges in dealing with 'bring your own' or 'choose your own' environments."
Dell claims its EMM software is different to what's currently on the market as customers can integrate its mobility offering securely across devices and workspaces, where companies use "separate, often disjointed products" for security, network services, software and hardware management across multiple OS platforms.
Dell EMM allows IT managers to configure security and compliance policies for iOS and Android smartphones; Windows, Android and iOS tablets; Linux, Mac and Windows laptops and desktops; as well as thin and zero cloud clients, the firm said.
Dell claimed that its offering merges security technologies with digital workspace applications and a "flexible deployment model" with mobility services to not only make environments safer, but to speed them up and thus save money for customers.
Dell's fresh EMM also includes the firm's virtual management server and console app for VMware, Data Protection I Virtual Edition, which allows customers to manage end point protection quickly and easily.
The EMM software will be available through the channel in early 2014, Dell said.
Dell launched a raft of enterprise technologies on Tuesday, including an update to its EqualLogic storage solutions, higher speed wireless and simplified campus networking switches to help its customers future proof their data centres while modernising campus networks.
Dell's updated EqualLogic releases include the PS6210 storage arrays, which Dell said will allow it to deliver flash storage at the price of hard disk solutions, for those customers seeking both faster performance and higher cost efficiency for their virtual environments.
