Astea Adds SOTI MobiControl to Alliance Mobility Solution Suite

— September 27, 2011

Astea International Inc. has announced plans to offer SOTI’s MobiControl mobile device management (MDM) software as part of its Astea Alliance Mobility Solution Suite.
SOTI MobiControl allows companies to manage, support and secure their mobile field force regardless of the devices used in the field. Mobile administrators can locate, gather and track information and lock down GPS-enabled devices, enable security protocols and restrict applications from running on devices.
The solution also uses diagnostic and imaging tools to identify problems with devices in the field, enabling mobile administrators to troubleshoot devices immediately, saving time, labor and frustration.
“The demand for mobile field service solutions is on the rise,” Zack Bergreen, CEO of Astea International, said in a statement. “Simultaneously, the number of mobile devices entering the market is also increasing at a rapid pace. As these factors increase so does the need for organizations to protect their mission critical data. With this joint solution our customers will be able to eliminate the complexities associated with managing and deploying various types of mobile devices as well as ensuring that both corporate and employee-owned devices are secure.”
“With the increasing adoption rate of both corporate and employee-owned devices around the world, field service organizations are looking for more secure, safe, and reliable management of their mission critical data,” SOTI Inc. president Carl Rodrigues said in a statement. “The SOTI-Astea partnership comes at the right time, by offering organizations the assurance that their sensitive corporate data and assets are protected while business security compliance is enforce and adhered to.”
