Enterprise Mobility Management

Enterprise mobility management (EMM) – also sometimes called mobile device management (MDM) – enables you to control and manage all of your mobile devices remotely. If you want your mobile devices to enhance your efficiency, customer service and future cost savings, they must be secure and managed and supported properly. EMM gives you all of the benefits of device management without the need for dedicated resources or infrastructure.

MobiControl user benefits

These include:

  • Higher productivity – Through minimised downtime; increased user adoption; reduced training and support time; and automated processes.
  • Time savings – Improved communication and visibility of users means that tasks such as application upgrades can be carried out remotely. The software also provides rapid access to reports, including a full asset history.
  • Cost savings – Central management with web access reduces the need for multiple support teams to maintain your mobile deployment. MobiControl takes control of wireless expenses: you set the account thresholds, manage wireless expenses, and set alerts.

MobiControl uses five key EMM pillars:

1. Management

A comprehensive suite of features including the provisioning, configuring, updating and controlling of your devices. You can monitor the devices easily and instantly, which enables you to identify and resolve any hardware or software issues. You can also synchronise files and folders between your devices and a server, which helps to ensure that your remote workers always have access to the latest information.


2. Support

This includes real-time remote control; over-the-air diagnosis and fixing of issues; and the control of files and processes. Our EMM solution supports a wide variety of mobile devices, including smartphones, PDAs, tablets, laptops, desktops and printers. MobiControl includes powerful remote control and helpdesk tools for efficient diagnosis and problem fixing. Software updates can be deployed to your remote devices in real time, saving you time, money and effort.


3. Security

MobiControl’s monitoring includes location-based alerts, actions and reports; proactive alerts; device compliance with corporate policies; and a management dashboard.

5. Tracking

With EMM, it’s easy to gather information on your GPS-enabled devices. This includes real-time device location; live device tracking; and tracking past device movements. This enables you to find lost or stolen units or to confirm the location of a mobile worker.


Recent developments to MobiControl include:

Integrated Telecom Expense Management (TEM):This feature enables you to control your mobile telecoms expenses by streamlining mobile operations and tracking and managing voice and data usage. You can set soft thresholds that will trigger notifications if users or groups exceed pre-defined limits; and hard thresholds that will disable SMS and MMS messaging, turn off data or restrict voice calling if a user exceeds their plan limit.

Provisioning: SOTI’s new out-of-the-box solution enables the rapid deployment of mobile devices, which can be configured (with WiFi, VPN, NCF or Bluetooth) over the air.

GDPR compliance: Compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is mandatory from May 2017. If you have a hosted MobiControl v13 or above, we can update it with SOTI’s latest GDPR-compliant version, free of charge. Key features of this version include:

  • SOTI Hub: A secure content library that controls how your employees access and share your content outside the corporate network. Remote users can then work on documents they need. The Hub’s Data Leakage Protection prevents them from sharing data with external applications.
  • SOTI Surf: A secure mobile browser for iOS and Android devices that enables users to access their corporate intranet through an encrypted connection, ensuring the safety of your corporate data. Your IT personnel can manage its security features and policies, such as website filtering, data leakage prevention and the encryption of all network traffic to and from specified domains.
  • Manage Exchange (Email) Access: This filter can restrict access to the Enterprise Exchange environment, only allowing legitimate traffic through to the Exchange server. This enables you to control which devices have access to email.
