Amtel Mobile Lifecycle Management Named Finalist in CTIA's MobITS Awards

Integrated Mobile Device Security, App & Expense Management Solution Simplifies Mobile Oversight

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2013) - Amtel Mobile Lifecycle Management, an integrated cloud-based solution for managing mobile devices, apps, content and expenses, has been named a finalist in the mobile device management (MDM) category of the first annual CTIA-sponsored MobITS awards, designed to recognize the top products that help IT professionals manage and leverage mobility. Amtel's integrated solution eliminates the complications of managing point products, reduces IT support effort and associated costs, and provides visibility into data usage thresholds not available from standalone MDM products to help reduce monthly mobile expenses.

Entries were judged by an expert panel that included Frost & Sullivan, HIS, Ovum, Strategy Analytics and other industry analysts, media and mobile IT experts. Winners will be announced Thursday, October 17 at the MobileCON conference in San Jose, CA.

"Merging device, app, and content management functions simplifies mobility administration and substantially reduces security and compliance risks," said Pankaj (PJ) Gupta, CEO and Chief Architect at Amtel. "We provide this consolidated monitoring and management system across any mix of mobile devices and in a cloud-based model that not only expedites deployment but enables real-time insight into data usage patterns for increased expense control."

Compatible with Apple iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows and Mac OS X devices, Amtel's Mobile Lifecycle Management empowers enterprises to secure and centrally manage devices, applications, content and expenses. The mobile device management solution helps customers manage company-owned and BYOD mobile device security, protect shared content through containerization, increase productivity as well as avoid liability problems by blacklisting and whitelisting mobile apps, exercise location-based control over apps and mobile features such as cameras with geofencing restrictions, and trim direct mobile spend by alerting admins to excessive data usage patterns.

"We created MobITS Awards to highlight and showcase the solutions that help IT professionals manage and leverage mobility for more success, effectiveness and efficiency," said Robert Mesirow, vice president and show director. "These individuals are constantly working to develop, secure and improve businesses and how they interact with employees and customers, but the internal and external challenges they face are more frequent and difficult from cyber threats to BYOD. These solutions help IT professionals to better meet those challenges."
