ORANGE, Conn. -- November 29, 2012
Tangoe, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNGO), a leading global provider of Communications
Lifecycle Management (CLM) software and related services, today announced
support for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 on Nokia, Samsung, and HTC mobile
devices. The latest enhancements to Tangoe’s Mobile Device Management (MDM)
solution help businesses to securely activate, deploy, and manage Windows
Phone 8 devices while simplifying administration and usability of increasingly
complex mobile communications environments.
“The widespread adoption and expansion of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) mobile
environments within the enterprise requires that mobility managers rapidly
adapt to the complexities caused by changing technologies and device types
within organizations,” said Wayne DeCesaris, Tangoe SVP of Managed Solutions.
“Tangoe MDM can simplify these complex mobile environments and deliver the
security, control, ease-of-use, and rapid deployment necessary for enterprises
to successfully manage the rising tide of mobile devices and operating systems
flooding their organizations.”
The new Windows Phone 8 features of Tangoe MDM support multiple
infrastructures, including customer premise, Tangoe hosted (SaaS), fully
managed service, and allow users to:
*Block defined devices from accessing MS Exchange
*Implement multiple device quarantine filters based upon:
*MDM client presence
*The recency of device synchronization with MDM
*Configure passcode policies including encryption enforcement when devices
are at rest
*Configure Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policies for one or multiple
accounts and set synchronization schedules
*Perform enterprise or device wipe, lock, and kill commands
*Enable GPS-based location tracking for lost or stolen devices and tablets
*Capture detailed device information including name, model, manufacturer,
carrier network, roaming status and OS version
Tangoe MDM is a scalable end-to-end platform that allows enterprises to gain
visibility and control for a wide array of smart-device types and operating
systems and reduce mobile device costs. Tangoe MDM’s flexible rules-based
policy engine enables the administration of Windows Phone 8, iOS, Android,
