LONDON UK: 3CX, developer of the award-winning Windows VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System, has recognised the booming mobile device management market and announces the launch of 3CX Mobile Device Manager – an easy to use and inexpensive hosted and deployable mobile device management solution that allows users to secure, monitor and manage their Android, iOS and Windows devices.

 

According to the Global Mobile Data Forecast, mobile devices will outnumber people by the end of 2013! Osterman Research has shown a steep uptrend of companies deploying mobile devices within their workforce, with a predicted 33% of US employees using company apps and having confidential corporate data on their devices by the end of 2013. More importantly, Osterman’s research shows us that the annual IT labour cost to manage a device will cost companies $399 per user.

With 7 million dollars’ worth of mobile phones being lost every day in the United States and over 300 devices being stolen in London each day, businesses can’t afford to have their sensitive data, such as confidential client emails and contact details, fall into the wrong hands.

“Organizations that do not address MDM properly face a growing set of risks, including an inability to adequately secure and retain data on mobile devices, greater downtime, higher IT costs, regulatory compliance violations and reduced employee productivity,” said Michael Osterman, President of Osterman Research.

3CX received significant demand from its customers for a mobile device management solution as Android and iOS devices have become popular end-points for PBXs such as 3CX Phone System. 3CX has already led the way in increasing mobility with its 3CXPhone client, therefore developing a mobile device management solution was the next natural step in the company’s progression.

“The demand for mobile device management is clear, yet a dedicated, easy to use and affordable mobile device management solution seems to be surprisingly lacking in the market.” said Nick Galea, 3CX CEO. “3CX Mobile Device Manager ticks all those boxes and is set to revolutionise the market, just like 3CX Phone System did for the IP PBX market. This release is just our first step – many new innovative features are coming soon that will make 3CX Mobile Device Manager leapfrog the competition.”
