Sophos Updates MDM Solution with Android Support

Sophos on Monday updated its mobile device management (MDM) software to expand support to Android devices in the BYOD mix.

The latest release is Sophos Mobile Control 3.0, and it is available on-premise and as a service.

In addition to the Android device support, the new version supports Samsung SAFE (Samsung for Enterprises) devices, new protections against malicious apps and extended URL filtering.

Core capabilities of Sophos Mobile Control include management of Apple iOS, BlackBerry and now Android devices; compliance enforcement such as remote lock and wipe and the ability to block e-mail access; whitelisting, blacklisting and distribution of apps; and user self-service.
