ROUND ROCK, Texas -- December 11, 2012

Today Dell Software announced a limited release of Dell KACE’s K3000 Mobile
Management Appliance, helping IT managers solve the challenges posed by the
proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace. The K3000 extends system
management capabilities to enforce security policies for both corporate and
personal mobile devices running on iOS and Android operating systems.
Integration with the K1000 Systems Management Appliance provides IT managers
with a powerful, integrated, easy-to-use solution to accurately track, monitor
and manage desktops, laptops, servers and mobile devices more efficiently.

As organizations embrace the opportunities that come with mobility they also
face new challenges. Whether the devices are corporate owned or are
established through a ‘bring your own device’ (BYOD) environment, the number
and types of devices that must be managed are growing, increasing IT
infrastructure complexity. The K3000 empowers IT to address the challenge of
supporting and securing mobile devices through an on-premise mobile management
appliance that simplifies management of mobile devices.

"The rapid influx of users bringing their own consumer mobile devices that
demand access to corporate resources presents challenges to organizations,"
stated Philip Redman, research vice president at Gartner in a recent press
release. "However, by implementing a structured support system with varied
support levels, IT organizations can shield business information and enforce
policies about data movement between the device and the corporate network,
while enabling users to adopt the device they deem most appropriate.
Organizations will find it hard to achieve an efficient mobile-support system
if all platforms are not managed the same way under enterprise requirements.”

The Dell KACE K3000 Management Appliance joins Dell’s mobile management
portfolio that includes Dell Wyse’s Cloud Client Manager and Dell MDM to
provide organizations with the ability to manage the complete breadth of end
user devices from a single vendor, including laptops, desktops, tablets,
smartphones and thin clients as well as a larger onsite managed service

“The definition of systems management is changing,” said Rob Meinhardt,
general manager for Dell KACE. “In the past, our customers managed laptops,
desktops and servers. Increasingly, they need to say ‘yes’ to devices of all
kinds including smartphones and tablets. With the Dell KACE K3000 Mobile
Management Appliance, our customers will have a well-integrated and
easy-to-use system for managing and securing all types of devices, operating
systems and endpoints in their IT environment.”

Enable IT to Say “Yes!” To Mobility

The Dell KACE K3000 Mobile Management Appliance extends systems management
capabilities to enforce security policies for mobile devices running iOS and
Android and includes the following features:

  *Single-step secure setup gets users up and running quickly and includes
    over the air provisioning of K3000 agents to devices.
  *Support for popular personal smartphones and tablet computers including
    Apple iOS 4.5 and 6 iPhones and iPads, Android 2.2+ C2DM-enabled
    smartphones and tablets.
  *Device security and policy management helps protect your organizations
    data through features such as profile management, device lock and unlock,
    remote enterprise wipe and remote factory reset.
  *Simplified application management allows pushing corporate applications on
    to both corporate as well as personal mobile devices.
  *View all endpoints from a single console through integration with the Dell
    KACE K1000 Systems Management Appliance. IT admins can now seamlessly
    access both appliances through single-sign on and view all mobile devices,
    PCs and servers from a single console.

Dell KACE will offer general availability of the K3000 Mobile Management
Appliance in early 2013. The limited release will be rolled out to KACE
customers in January.
