The new version of the enterprise mobility solution addresses the growing demand for secure productivity
Friday, March 9, 2018 — Cortado Mobile Solutions today announces a new version of its enterprise mobility solution, Cortado Server 9.0. The latest version comes with numerous security and productivity improvements. The solution now supports macOS as well as Windows systems and opens its productivity apps to other MDM manufacturers.
In light of the EU’s new general data protection regulation (GDPR) and similar regulations around the world, the management of mobile devices plays a central role in data privacy. It is often thought that mobile devices are potential sources of danger, however they also lay the foundation for new, far more flexible and above all, cost-saving business processes. That is why it is Cortado’s goal to continue to seamlessly combine productivity and security. Cortado Server 9.0 combines MDM, MAM and MCM functions to offer a range of important, customer-based requirements have been implemented, such as:
Management of macOS computers, including printing and file access
In addition to iPhones and iPads, users can now manage all macOS computers through Cortado Server. Beyond central management, this latest version also manages printer assignments and enables easy access to the company’s file server via the web app – whether users are on the go or in the workplace.
Samsung Knox support and extended Android Enterprise support
With the support of Samsung Knox, Cortado offers an alternative to Android Enterprise, whose support is even better facilitated by Cortado with this release. For Android Enterprise, the work-managed device solution set for COBO scenarios (Company Owned, Business Only) is now also supported.
Enhanced features for iOS 11
iOS 11 was supported from day one, but now users can access the extended features, as the iOS app has been fully updated.
Feature enhancements for virtual data rooms
Cortado Server 9.0 further enhances Cortado’s highly secure, on-premises virtual data rooms. Within these virtual data rooms, users can easily and securely share and edit files, even with external employees.
In addition to all these new features, Cortado Server 9,0 complements other MDM systems with additional productivity features. The Cortado apps can now be managed either by Cortado Server itself or by other MDM systems, such as MobileIron or AirWatch.
“We live in a dynamic market environment and don’t want to place artificial barriers in the way of our customers,” said Sven Huschke, CEO at Cortado Mobile Solutions. “If you want to offer your employees mobile productivity, you can do so completely with our mobility solution. Companies that already have an MDM in place, such as MobileIron or AirWatch, can leverage our file access or mobile printing solutions to significantly increase their productivity.”
