VIDEO: Introducing Symantec Mobility: Suite
Today mobility offers ‘any device, any time, any place’ productivity, appealing to both enterprises and employees. However, that flexibility comes with challenges—protecting corporate data on devices, separating personal and corporate information, managing diverse operating systems, and preventing devices and apps from becoming another attack vector.
With Symantec™ Mobility: Suite (v.5.0), available today, customers can now rely on a single unified solution of control that enforces consistent security standards, regardless of device type, without impeding the end user’s productivity or personal privacy. Mobility Suite simplifies mobility management, integrating mobile device management (MDM), mobile application management (MAM) and mobile threat protection into one comprehensive, single console solution. Whether a user’s environment is standardized on corporate-owned devices, allows them a ‘choose your own device’ (CYOD) program, embraces ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) or manages a mix of these options, Mobility Suite makes it easier for enterprises to master security, while maximizing productivity.
What is the significance of this release? It is the most significant mobile management release to date for Symantec. We’ve made several acquisitions of mobile management products (Nukona, Odyssey, NitroDesk) over the years. Mobility Suite integrates these acquisitions into one solution that makes it easy for customers to embrace mobility with a comprehensive, flexible solution that gives customers options for layered protection. Let’s take a look at what’s new in Symantec™ Mobility: Suite.
A single console with flexible, modular packaging and improved pricing
The new Mobility Suite is a modular solution that delivers flexibility to implement the right level of control, as an organization’s mobility needs change.From a single console, IT can manage mobile devices, apps, content, and threat protection. Functionality will be turned on based on what a customer has licensed. Customers have the option to license Symantec Mobility: Suite or individual modules: Mobility: Device Management (MDM), Mobility: Application Management (MAM), or Mobility: Threat Protection. This release is available as SaaS and On-Premise versions.

An improved user experience
With mobility, the user experience is king. Mobility Suite greatly improves the user experience with a new WorkHub app. End-users will experience faster response from the app and enjoy a new, more modern look and feel. This is only the beginning because we have more user experience improvements planned.
WorkHub app in iOS
Expanded platform support
Expanding our platform support remains a top initiative. We’ve made great progress with this release. Customers can now support Windows Phone 8.1, Samsung SAFE, and iOS 8 devices.
Enabling service provider partners
As service provider partners look to expand their enterprise mobility offerings, Symantec makes it easier to implement and deliver services to their customers. With multi-tenancy capabilities and additional integration APIs, service provider partners can easily plug Mobility Suite into their infrastructure and streamline management of services.
