BLUE BELL, Pa., Feb. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hall 2.1 Stand EZ18, Mobile World Congress --  Fiberlink ®, the leader in software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for secure mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM), today announced that Bright Star Tech Data, a joint venture between Brightstar Corp. and Tech Data Corporation will distribute MaaS360 to their vast network of customers, resellers, and system integrators in the German, Austria and Switzerland markets. As the most comprehensive enterprise device management solution, MaaS360 allows businesses to instantly deploy mobile devices in their organization and secure their data without adding infrastructure.

The partnership represents a strategic move for Fiberlink's expansion in the European market, where analysts expect MDM revenues to grow by approximately 40 percent this year. By expanding their portfolio to include MaaS360, Brightstar customers can effectively address the rapidly growing trend of smartphones and tablets in the enterprise across multiple platforms including iOS and Android.

"Only Fiberlink's cloud-based MaaS360 Platform provides the instant time-to-value our customers require. The solution delivers rapid insight and control across all device types without on-premise hardware," said Stefan Voelkel, director of sales at Brightstar. "MaaS360 is a critical element in providing agnostic device management to our customers whom are adopting smartphones and tablets as openly as laptops."

With MaaS360, each customer can easily manage bring-your-own-device ( BYOD) and corporate-issued devices in a single console. This includes implementing MDM best practices such as complete discovery of all devices accessing e-mail, over-the-air device enrollment and configuration, passcode enforcement, jailbreak detection, remote lock, location and wipe. MaaS360's easy-to-use interface enables IT to provide employees with the proper device life-cycle support and productivity enablement tools.

"Through our partnership with Brightstar, Fiberlink expands its global leadership in enterprise device management," said Robert Kunst, channel manager for EMEA at Fiberlink. "Further extending our international placement paves the way for rapid growth in the German market. MaaS360's cloud-based approach is the only way organizations can keep up with the pace of change in mobility."

Fiberlink is exhibiting at Mobile World Congress in Hall 2.1 Stand EZ18. Visit the booth to talk with executives and see a demo of MaaS360.
