Dell today announced a new cloud client computing solution to help organizations securely embrace BYOD and consumerized IT across the increasingly diverse range of worker scenarios. As employees demand greater freedom and flexibility in how they access their professional resources,
Dell Wyse Cloud Client Manager
, formerly known as Project Stratus, empowers IT departments to cost-effectively offer the experience employees require while helping to ensure corporate data remains secure and business policies are enforced.
As Dell extends its range of cloud client computing solutions to enable organizations to securely connect users with their corporate resources regardless of where they are, Dell Wyse Cloud Client manager offers a cloud-based management option for its thin clients in addition to its premier on-premise solution. Through a single, cloud-based console, Dell Wyse Cloud Client Manager enables IT to securely manage company- and user-owned devices alongside end user access to company applications and content, without the burden of ongoing solution installation, updates and maintenance.
To support a broad range of scenarios, the solution delivers capabilities in four core areas: Systems Management, Application and Content Management, End User Self-Service and Real-time Reporting and Alerts.
Systems Management and policy enforcement for thin clients and mobile devices
Dell Wyse Cloud Client Manager delivers cloud-based remote configuration and management of Dell Wyse thin and zero clients, on- and off-premise, including those in highly distributed environments such as branch office and home users - effectively extending visibility and control beyond the corporate firewall.
The solution also provides comprehensive over-the-air mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) capability for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, making it easy to support a BYOD strategy alongside company-owned mobile devices.
Policy-driven Application and Content Management
In addition to secure management of mobile apps on company- or user-owned mobile devices, Dell Wyse Cloud Client Manager allows IT to enable remote desktop and content management between mobile devices and desktops or laptops through integration with Dell Wyse PocketCloud software. This integration enables people to have simple, secure access and management of their content on any of their office or home based computers from their supported smartphone or tablet.
