LAS VEGAS (ProMat, Booth #3864) — Jan. 14, 2013 — In response to the expanding adoption of consumer smart devices for both business mobility and mission-critical functions, Wavelink (www.wavelink.com), a LANDesk Software business unit, today announced the availability of its newest mobile device management and wireless infrastructure management software. Wavelink Avalanche 5.4 addresses the growing integration of traditional ruggedized devices and consumer smart devices so IT professionals across many industries can confidently manage, secure and deploy a variety of devices and infrastructure components using the strength, features and functionality of the Avalanche platform. From a single console and through an assortment of delivery mechanisms, Avalanche 5.4 offers simple enrollment, device configuration, device security policies and remote control management.
“Through the cloud, Avalanche [On Demand] helps me support my clients anytime from anywhere,” said Jesse Webber, director of operations at Topson Downs, formerly CloudIM Systems. “This is a great benefit for me, but it’s even better for my clients. Issues that might take an onsite visit to address can be identified and fixed within minutes. It’s a win-win for us and our clients.”
Avalanche 5.4 is available through on-premise installation, cloud-based SaaS (Avalanche On Demand) and as a hosted offering (Avalanche Managed Services). The solution reduces the time, costs and risks associated with managing both consumer and ruggedized business-critical mobile devices by providing new capabilities such as:
- Optimized support of the popular iOS6 and Android platforms
- A forced application push option that deploys applications to the user’s device on
These new features are in addition to current features, including software and configuration management options, mobile device security, remote help desk, location-based services, alerts and reports, and infrastructure management capabilities. IT managers in a number of industries, such as retail, healthcare, government and others can more easily configure and manage both consumer and ruggedized devices that perform mission-critical tasks, including performing inventory lookup, point-of-sale (POS) functions, field service operations and securely sending clinical data.
“With the latest upgrade to Avalanche, we wanted to empower our customers to choose the mobile devices that work best for them when performing tasks that drive revenue for their business,” said Mike Temple, product manager at LANDesk Software. “With many organizations now choosing iPads and other consumer products as their device of choice – frequently in conjunction with traditional ruggedized offerings – Avalanche 5.4 permits organizations to securely enable mobile support within an increasingly consumerized mobile workplace from a single console.”
