Wavelink and iPad Enclosures Partner to Deliver Innovative Tablet-Based Solutions

Partnership Provides Secure, Remote Device Management for Affordable Touch Kiosks Using Tablet Computers

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - Wavelink Corporation (www.wavelink.com) today announced a partnership with iPad Enclosures, the makers of the secure iPad kiosk and other tablet kiosks, to provide remote management of tablet-based kiosks. With iPad Enclosures protecting the devices and kiosks and Wavelink providing remote management of tablets, organizations now have an affordable solution for provisioning, deploying and maintaining multiple tablet computer kiosks.

iPads and other tablets are becoming increasingly popular for kiosks, particularly in industries such as retail, hospitality, entertainment, healthcare and education, because of the lower cost and portability not available with PC-based kiosks. They allow customers to interact with a company and its brand at both long-term and temporary locations including retail outlets, hotels, hospitals, amusement parks, museums, universities, conventions and concerts.

"Our customers love the sleek design and cost-effectiveness of our kiosk enclosures, but as they deploy multiple units they have been asking for a way to remotely manage them," said Scott Paul, president of iPad Enclosures. "With Wavelink, we can offer customers a solution that enables them to perform updates, secure the information on the device, track their location and monitor their performance without requiring someone to physically go to each device."

iPad Enclosures securely encases the tablet devices to prevent theft or tampering. Device management from Wavelink Avalanche provides the ability to remotely monitor, update and manage an entire fleet of devices from a web-based console to ensure kiosks are operating correctly and that the data on them is secure. In hotel and hospital rooms where an occupant uses a device that then needs to be cleared of any data and history, administrators can use Avalanche to remotely wipe, provision and secure the device for the next user.

Lamar Van Wagenen, president and CEO of Wavelink, added, "Tablets are becoming more popular as business tools over the traditional consumer devices. However, businesses need to be more proactive in how they manage these new types of mobile assets so they can efficiently deploy and maintain them. It is also important to ensure that consumer data is secure and that iPads maintain compliance with industry mandates for security and privacy especially within the healthcare industry and HIPAA and HITECH regulations."
