Sybase iAnywhere Introduce New Version of Afaria Frontline Management and Security Solution
Posted on 27-Mar-2006 23:17 | Tags Filed under: News



Sybase's iAnywhere is introducing Afaria 5.4, a frontline management and security solution for mobile devices. This version includes expanded capabilities for managing RIM BlackBerry devices, plus full management and security capabilities for Windows Mobile 5.0 devices, including new device monitoring capabilities.

Other enhancements include a permanent client identifier for handhelds, and inventory management improvements for converged mobile devices.

"With Afaria 5.4, it's easy for administrators to manage all of their mobile devices, including BlackBerry, Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone, Palm and Symbian devices, and even laptop computers from a single console," said Joe Owen, vice president, engineering, iAnywhere. "This is a huge advantage for companies who need to manage and secure a variety of devices. Now all of these devices can be easily managed and tracked through the Afaria Management console."

Afaria 5.4 allows organizations to deploy, install and repair software applications on Blackberry devices. In addition, the Afaria Session Manager component is now available for BlackBerry devices to allow administrators to customize system management tasks and support business processes.

Microsoft SMS administrators can also easily manage BlackBerry devices directly from their SMS console with extensions to the console for software distribution and inventory management.

Additional features for BlackBerry device management include the protection of lost or stolen devices through the ability to lock and/or remove data and applications from devices; the ability to configure and enforce BlackBerry device settings; tracking of software licenses and installations; improved collection of asset information with the Afaria Inventory Manager component, including the ability to retrieve a broad range of data regarding device connectivity capabilities; and expanded communication optimizations including scheduling, outbound notification, dynamic bandwidth throttling and checkpoint restart.

Afaria 5.4 allows administrators to monitor Windows Mobile 5.0 devices and automatically react to changes in the state of a device. These monitoring capabilities offer an additional method for initiating local management tasks or triggering connections to the Afaria server.

Windows Mobile 5.0 administrators can back up key files on a device when the battery level drops below a critical level. The software also monitor and enforces application installation and usage policies, while maintaining logs of when confidential files on mobile devices are written to external cards or sent to other devices.

The software will be available on 31 March 2006.
