Ingram Micro adds SOTI enterprise mobility management to portfolio

30 Mar 2017

Ingram Micro Australia has inked a deal with enterprise mobility management vendor SOTI, in a move the two companies say will help support mobility management  – including the next wave of IoT devices.

Andrew Upshon, general manager Ingram Plus Division, Australia, says the addition of SOTI to the distributor’s line-up will enable it to provide enterprise grade device management solutions to partners.

“SOTI MobiControl complements our existing portfolio of Windows, Android and iOS devices and will make it easier for our partners to grow their business and increase profitability by sourcing a complete solution from the one distribution partner,” Upshon says.

SOTI MobiControl – SOTI’s flagship product – manages enterprise devices and corporate data remotely, securely and across any operating system.

The vendor says MobiControl includes ‘enhanced’ enterprise mobile management features including application management, content management, location services and remote help, along with advanced security features.

Customers can remotely control and monitor applications, content, location services, file/data transfer, task management, system status, battery status, soft/hard device resets and more in real time, eliminating the need for the devices to be returned to a central point for updates or maintenance.

Ingram Micro says the offering provides customers with a management solution to support the next wave of IoT devices.

Adele Beachley, SOTI APAC managing director, says Ingram Micro’s presence and continued investment in the next generation of IoT mobility ‘will empower organisations to implement strategic mobility programs touching everything from business critical operations through to day-to-day business workflows as well as securing critical mobile assets’.
