Silverback by Matrix42 offers new functions for data protection and comprehensive monitoringLONDON, ENGLAND, 2nd March 2015: Matrix42 (www.matrix42.com), a top provider of software for workspace management, is raising the bar for managing mobile devices with the newest version of the Silverback by Matrix42 software. The latest features improve data protection, separating professional and private data, and providing multi-language capabilities.Despite the fact that the use of mobile devices by professionals is increasing, the majority of companies do not yet have an adequate solution for managing these devices and the apps installed on them. In a Matrix42 survey, IT representatives from around 1,500 companies named the following three topics as the greatest challenges in this field: The complexity of managing and maintaining mobile devices; the issue of separating private and professional data; and the license management required for software and apps used on laptops and tablets. Comprehensive SolutionWith Silverback by Matrix42, the software provider is offering a comprehensive solution for managing mobile devices and workspaces, facilitating the provision, management, and deployment of mobile IT resources in a cost-transparent way. With a central interface available in multiple languages, it facilitates simple, secure, and scalable management for devices running Apple iOS, Google Android, Samsung SAFE, Samsung Knox, and Microsoft Windows Phone. The new software allows companies to provide their employees with simple and secure access to their familiar workspaces via both private and company mobile devices – access that is set up within just a few hours and without IT having to manually interact with the devices.First to Market: Android for Work Support The separation of business and private data – such as contacts, calendars, documents, and applications – on personal and company devices protects the privacy of employees, and it also ensures that sensitive company information is protected according to the specified company guidelines. Silverback by Matrix42 offers zero-day support by Android for Work under Android L. For instance, users of devices with Android 5.0 or higher can easily switch between private and business profiles using Managed Profiles, at any time and without sacrificing productivity. The new functions include an option to manage restrictions using Android for Work, as well as optimized certificate management.Custom Security SettingsThe security settings can be configured individually for users, devices, and operating systems alike. The solution also offers limited time slots with one-time passwords and real time-based hardware authentication processes. PKI integration ensures secure, automatic logging on to IT services. Single Sign On without synchronized AD log-on data likewise contributes to the level of security.Secure Management of Applications and DocumentsThe new solution is fully suitable for internationally active companies and teams thanks to the interface being available in multiple languages (German and English). The management of mobile end devices can be taken care of automatically and without a client, and it also includes numerous functions for mobile application management – such as the distribution of applications via the Self Service portal or using whitelists and blacklists for applications. Mobile work and cooperation is facilitated through integrated data and content management, which among others includes a secure content hub, Microsoft SharePoint integration, protection against application-level data loss, and the synchronization of data between different devices.
