AVG Launches Apple®-centric RMM Toolset That Greatly Simplifies Management Of Mixed Windows®/Mac® Customer Networks For MSPs

AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security, privacy and optimization solutions to 155 million active users, today announced enhanced support for Apple®'s Mac® operating system (OS) environments within its AVG Managed Workplace® 2013 remote monitoring & management (RMM) platform. At the same time AVG Managed Workplace becomes the first leading RMM tool to offer agentless iOS® management of Mac OS® X devices including iPads® and iPhones®.  The new capabilities will help Managed Services Providers (MSPs) offer a greater range of Mobile Device Management (MDM) options to customers wanting professional management of their Mac-only or mixed Windows ®/Apple environments and to reduce security issues related to personal mobile devices accessing their business IT infrastructure.

From now on, MSPs using AVG Managed Workplace can monitor and manage Mac OS X devices regardless of whether they are always in the office, only connect occasionally or are even permanently off-network. They can now also remotely lock and/or wipe a lost or stolen Mac OS X device for their customers to protect the confidentiality of company or customer data.

Additionally, AVG Managed Workplace becomes the first of the industry's leading RMM platforms to offer agentless monitoring and management of iOS mobile devices like iPhones and iPads. Eliminating the need to install agent software on the endpoint in this way allows MSPs to bring these devices under management in a few clicks. As with earlier releases of AVG Managed Workplace, MSPs have a centralized view of all mobile devices under management in the Service Center.

"Today's announcement is yet another major advancement for AVG Managed Workplace and represents the Holy Grail for any MSP," said Mike Foreman, AVG's General Manager, SMB.  "With this release they can now remotely monitor and manage any combination of Windows, OSX, Android™ and iOS devices all through the same single pane of glass."

"These new capabilities give our partners added powers to bring peace of mind to customers wrestling with today's BYOD security concerns," he continued.
