Perimeter E-Security To Offer MDM In The Cloud

Perimeter E-Security will offer cloud-based mobile device management based on AirWatch to manage bring-your-own-device deployments. The system works with Perimeter's Exchange-based email security service.

Security cloud services vendor Perimeter E-Security Wednesday announced a new cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) service offering.

The new service will be based on technology from MDM company AirWatch.

The offering includes a "BYOD kit" to ease the setup and management of security for employee-owned devices. Implementation can be performed "in a few hours," according to the company. The kit includes a "Model Acceptable Use Policy" and policy guidance.

The system provides for management of devices, applications, and content on iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Symbian, and Windows Mobile. There are hundreds of controls for the configuration of email, wireless access, security and other details. Pre-configured policies are available to implement best practices and these policies can be tweaked by administrators if desired.

The system is integrated with Perimeter E-Security's Exchange-based e-mail security service. It also includes policies and reports for compliance with regulatory requirements for electronic authentication strength.

Companies with BYOD deployments are, almost of necessity, committed to cloud-based operations, so a cloud-based security system fits right in. Many, if not most of Perimeter E-Security's competitors, also offer cloud-based mobile device management.
