LANDesk Handheld Manager 8: inventory management and software distribution for handhelds
LANDesk Software has announced enhancements to LANDesk Handheld Manager. The software, now on version 8.15, enables wireless, untethered manageability. Handheld devices can be integrated into existing IT environments while bypassing desktop docking stations. The platform unifies desktop, server and mobile device management in a single solution.

The company says that organizations deploy LANDesk Handheld Manager in part to respond to individual employees incorporating private handheld devices into their work. Handheld devices offer increased functionality, convenience and stability, and as their use broadens, IT departments must address the associated security and management issues. Increasingly, businesses are replacing individuals' handhelds with corporate devices and deploying solutions to ensure the computing resources of mobile work forces are kept online and secure.

LANDesk Handheld Manager enables organizations to deploy, manage and protect the handheld devices of mobile work forces from the LANDesk Management Suite console, helping employees realize increased productivity and use mobile devices more effectively.

The software is available for Windows CE .Net 4.2, Pocket PC OS 2002, Windows Mobile Pocket PC (no host PC required) or Palm OS 4.0 and newer (with a host PC).

LANDesk Handheld Manager provides:

  • Asset discovery and management
  • Software distribution
  • Asset monitoring and change control alerting
  • Bandwidth throttling and checkpoint restart
  • Automated update and device maintenance
  • LANDesk Handheld File Exchange technology
  • Optimized for the low-speed, intermittent connections characteristic of handheld devices, LANDesk Handheld Manager integrates comprehensive mobile device management with enterprise-level task control.
