MDM Solutions Review Profile - Sybase/Afaria

From the Company
Sybase has been recognized as the leader in mobile device management enterprise software for ten consecutive years. Key to that leadership is Afaria, software that manages the devices, applications, data and communications critical to frontline success in the mobile enterprise. Afaria’s software platform delivers centralized control of all mobile devices and tablets including iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry, as well as the apps that run on them. With keeping technology in mind, Afaria offers Enterprises the flexibility to deploy on premise or partner hosted.
Analyst Take
Gartner: “Afaria is Sybase’s MDM and security product, also delivered as cloud services within Sybase Managed Mobility (or as hosted services through partners such as Verizon and Orange). Sybase does not require a proprietary email client, but instead offers integrated secure control over a third-party email solution (for Android, via partner NitroDesk). Afaria provides rich support for software distribution, policy enforcement, inventory management and security. It is one of the oldest MDM products.”
More Detail
Afaria provides the level of control and visibility required to proactively manage and secure multiple device types, applications, data and communications—all from a single console. It gives IT the ability to manage and secure a variety of mobile devices including iPhone, Android, Symbian, BlackBerry, OMA DM, Windows Mobile and Windows Laptops. Afaria offers enhanced security updates and a policy-based model for enabling simplified device management across a range of platforms and smartphones. It gives enterprises with multiple sites and business units a cohesive way to manage company-issued and employee-owned devices.
