CA Southern Africa has revealed that CA Technologies has launched the industry’s first, comprehensive Management Cloud for Mobility. This portfolio – delivered as a cloud service – enables enterprises to manage, secure and grow their businesses, increase productivity and deliver an enhanced mobile experience.

“The explosion of new devices, applications, content and transactions in the mobile environment has opened new challenges for enterprises of all sizes, worldwide. The CA Management Cloud for Mobility will help enterprises transform the challenges of the new mobile economy into significant opportunity,” says Gareth James, CA Southern Africa solution strategist, mobility and cloud.

“With solutions that power innovation, drive productivity and accelerate the development of new mobile applications and offerings, CA is extending its leadership in IT management to help businesses capitalise on the next technological and business shift – mobility.”

The portfolio includes three complementary solution suites: Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) to manage and secure mobile devices, applications and content; Mobile DevOps to accelerate application development and deployment; and Enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) to enable the adoption of internet-connected devices.

The complete EMM suite and key products of the Mobile DevOps suite are available for purchase. Customers have the choice and flexibility to deploy the complete portfolio of solutions or individual components, with the ability to customise and scale cost effectively.

This CA Management Cloud for Mobility is powered by Smart Containerization technology. Unlike traditional device-focused mobility management techniques, Smart Containerization allows enterprises to manage the security, performance, compliance and support characteristics of the device, application, content or e-mail while preserving the quality of the mobile user experience.

“The growth of mobile devices and apps in the enterprise is blurring the lines between personal and corporate data, as well as leading to new challenges for enterprises,” said Chris Hazelton, Research Director, Mobile & Wireless, 451 Research.

“The EMM space is evolving as companies are looking for more complete offerings that support customers and productive mobile employees. Secure container technologies must provide enterprise scalability and comprehensive security across app development, delivery and support, all while preserving the familiar native look and feel of nearly any mobile device an employee chooses to carry.”

The EMM suite enables enterprises to drive employee productivity and satisfaction by simplifying the management and security of devices, applications, content and e-mail.

The four products within the EMM suite are: CA Mobile Application Management (CA MAM); CA Mobile Content Management (CA MCM); CA Mobile Email Management (CA MEM): and CA Mobile Device Management (CA MDM).
